GoWesty also sells a radio switch kit. I like it, lets you flip the switch to turn radio on with key or always on. You could probably do it yourself if you are smarter than me. It taps into the wiring in the steering column then to switch, from switch it goes to always on power and remote power. I put mine under the bottom lip of the dash and made it so the switch flipped towards steering column is on with keys, flip towards radio is always on.
