Dash switch source?

Anyone know where I can find a stock looking switch for my dash? My headlight multi-switch took a dump on the fog light side, and the dealer wants $250 for a replacement. No way in hell I'm paying that much to run my fog lights.

'02 Sport
Thanks

I would rewire the lights through relays to a toggle switch on the dash.

IIRC the earlier TJ's had the fog light switch separate on the middle section of the dash near the ash tray....could source one of those up and wire the lights to it.

good source for used Jeep parts is daveysjeeps.com...might also see how much those cost from DLR.

My plan is to wire the lights to a switch on the dash, I just don't want to go with a ghetto toggle right next to the fancy stock switches. My optimum soulution would be a matching switch with the little fog light graphic on it to replace the knock out that's already there. The dealer was absolutly no help with the dash switch BTW.

I would do as MrCC said and go to daveysjeeps.com

They have a massive junk yard. just contact them and ask for a fog light switch.
