    Guys, I want to set up some bed-lights on a dual switch system - on switch in the bed, one in the cab. So I need a pair of SPDT switches. Duh.

    But since it won't be on an ignition switched circuit, I want the switches to have an indicator light - so I know they're on and don't inadvertently leave them on and run down the battery.

    SPDT switches are dime a dozen - easy to find at Radio Shack, farily easy to find at AutoZone etc...

    Illuminated switches are a little harder. And it needs to be an indicator light - "on when the circuit is complete" light not a separately powered "find the switch in the dark" light. Anyone got a part number or link?


    I'm just about resigned to using a separate toggle and indicator light, but it would be cool if they were a single unit.
