Well, personally I would prefer the switch to behave as it already is, as it acts as an indicator. Especially useful in daylight. But its not my truck so yeah. Anyway the jumper would work or if you wanted you could just get a new switch. The switches that OTRATTW
sells are just Carling switches. I am assuming that you went with a Contra V. so any Contra V swithc body will work with the rocker you already have. So I guess since you have the switch, a simple jumper will work, with a picture of the switch or the part number we can figure out what tabs you need to link together. Alternatively you could buy another switch. Carling makes damn near anything you could ever need a switch to do. With that said, if you wanted a different color of LED or something that is workable too.
I cant get it to work right now cause I have crappy internet, but http://www.carlingtech.com/configurit
is a tool that lets you build the exact switch you want. Or at least tells you the part number. Then its just up to you and google to find one. I ordered a few of these a little while back, but they were on 5 week backorder, probably because they had to make them. But I digress.
If you wanted a new switch I think the part number would be V1D1ENNB or V1D1DNNB which would integrate the circuit you want directly into the switch, but since I cant seem to find those on google, V1D1KNNB should also work as both leds are independently wired from the switch. all you would need to do is tie the power side of each of them to the power for your dash lights and you should be good to go. Those part numbers are for a SPST two position switch with amber LEDs The two "N"s denote the led color. You could also get red by replacing them with "C" or you can get superbright green or red by replacing them with "H" or "T" respectively.
