    My KC Offroad lights came with a black toggle switch with an indicator light to tell you when the switch is on. The shop that mounted the lights just drilled a hole in one of the empty square black switch covers (lower left dash next to fog light switch) and mounted the toggle switch to the existing square black cover. No additional cost for factory switch and it looks pretty good.

    actually not a perfect fit... they require some shaving (not much)...

    plus they're way too big for the stock opening... they don't look right... :eek:
