    I've been looking through the forum for a while now, and I keep striking out. I'm sure it's been asked before, but here it goes again. I have an '11 off road, and there are no open switch blanks to the left of the steering column. What options do I have for an aux light switch? Is there a multi function switch out there that I could replace the fog light switch with to operate both? The only other thing I could think of is having it beside the "A-TRAC" switch below the cigarette lighter. My memory is failing me right now, and I can't remember if there is a blank there. If so does anyone know what switch would fit there? I believe that the A-TRAC switch is more square than rectangle like the ones by the steering column. Thanks in advance.

    My PIAA lights came with a switch with double sided tape on the back. I just stuck it to the left of the steering column opening on that section of open grey plastic. It's clean. I was going to run a switch down by the A-TRAC (there is a blank) but you can't get to that section without pulling some of the dash apart.

    I just installed a switch for my VisionX lights in the blank between the ATRAC and AUX input, and I didn't have to take apart anything. I carefully pried out the blank (then cut it up to fit my switch.) I used a fish-tape to get the wire threaded over to the area under the steering column. It was quite easy actually.
