Replacing the stock fog light switch with an OTRATTW one.

Hey guys and gals, I just ordered some OTRATTW switches (CB Radio, Bumper Lights, and Fog Lights) and I was planning on using the fog light one to replace my stock fog light switch so I have a uniform switch set on the dash. Has anyone done this before?

Also, has anyone move the inverter button to the bottom set of blanks by the RSCA and Traction control button? I want to do this so all of my OTRATTW switches are at the top.

If no one has done these, let me know if you are interested in a write-up and I'll do one when I install the switches.

I'd be interested in a write up or at least on how you wire the otrattw fog light switch to work. I'm about to order one soon.

After I get the OTRATTW switches installed you're welcome to them. Just cover shipping. PM me your zip and I can get you a shipping quote.

looking on the OTRATTW site, the options for the switches are slightly confusing, questions for krob and steveo, which switches did you order? meaning part number?

subd, was wondering since IIRC the stock fog-lights use a switched ground instead of a hot

I ordered the part numbers below. But for the switch body, I selected the SPST with the green dependent LED and greed independent LED to match the dash and have one trun on then the switch is enabled.

I called. Some of the switches weren't on the website. They were very helpful when I told them what I wanted on the switch and how I wanted it to operate. I don't remember the part numbers.

Steve - did you use the wiring diagram that came with the switches or did you deviate to do your own thing?

sorry for so many questions, just trying to get ideas

True. He is very accommodating when wanting custom switches. My rear lights switch isn't on the site and the CB switch is custom:

Did you get the rear lights switch from them as well? I haven't seen it on their site, but I have on others
