Default My switch panel has 3 extra switches....

What kind of accessories should I add to fill up those 3 switches?
I am building a custom center console. The switch panel I have on it has 10 switches, but only 7 of them are taken up. What can I do with those other 3 switches?

Lets see what kinda crazy responses I get

I am also looking for serious answers as well

The switches that are already being used:
Outside (2) 9" HIDs (offroad lights on prerunner bumper)
Inside (2) 9" HIDs (offroad lights on prerunner bumper)
Air Horn
Race Radio/ CB Radio (on/ off/ on switch)
Cargo Light
Angel Eyes (headlight)
Halos (headlight)

I am in the process of purchasing a 3rd BL from olyeller with cargo lights right now. I will be doing some type of LED modification to the cargo lights, so that would be enough. One of those 7 switches that are taken up are actually going for a cargo light

The cargo lights up next to my 3rd brake lights will be plenty enough for lighting up the bed. Bed lights would be pointless.
