i got some carling switches from my local electronics store printed my own labels on clear sticker paper put a layer of transparent 3m film over it so the labels don't come off when you clean the truck (I've done this the labels come right off with a damp cloth)

You do have to trim the console for them to fit though.

It's hard to screw it up. I just sliced down one side where it wouldn't fit. There's a tab in the hole that prevents the switch from going in.
