This one has all the options mentioned. 12 volts, Overdrive (F150), AC. If I did not do extended road trips I might not have done either of them.

Re: Where does the light harness switch get its power

The power to the Head Light Switch is taken from the screw on the CutOut. The Yellow/Black wire goes to the fuse. The other wire (?color) is power for lights.
