Aftermarket switches to fit in stock location?

We have a loaded Unlimited X, and plan on a set of driving lights, I see the Daystar pannel that fits under the heater controls and holds 4 switches, but I only need one, 2 max. Does anyone make a switch to fit in the stock location, like where the Rubi disconect switch would go?

On a second thought, when we replace the front bumper, is there any way to run a set of aftermarket driving lights from the stock switch?

Thanks,
Todd

Just rig the driving lights up with a relay switched from the high beam...then you don't need any extra switches - or if you want to get fancy then run a second relay off the fog lamps so that the driving lights will work only if you select the fog lights + high beam.

That could get interesting.... The stock fogs only work with low beam or parking lights....

You may want some additional control over the lights as well... I had lights that had both a switch and hooked to the highbeams... this allows your high beams to work without the driving lights coming on... but I had to have the high beams on to have the driving lights on...
