dash switches

I've been trying to find switches that fit in the factory blanks in the center dash right above the 12V plug and cig lighter. I'm pretty sure that vehicles that have more options, such as factory fog lights have the switches placed here. Since I have no options I have four blanks. I just installed KC fog lights and would like to place the switch in this same position. Are there any switches that fit in this spot?

Daystar switches are supposed to fit there, IIRC.
Also, OTRATTW switches will fit there. Some are not recommended for stock location mounting in TJ's, so be careful which switch style you choose. I plan on going with the OTRATTW switches, whenever FedEx gets done playing with my new bumpers, lol!

I ordered the OTRATTW switch and I am pleased. It is not a perfect fit (it would be closer if I filled all 4 blanks). I emailed them to see if I needed something different, they were helpful and said I had the right one and this was actually as close to a fit as possible. I couldn't find anything that said daystar fit - it may but I went with OTRATTW. Attached pic, hope this helps.

I found one place online that had them, they fit the blanks perfectly, and the switch is ok. It does illuminate and works just fine. I'll try and find that site again. They ran about 20-25 shipped

Found it.

Thanks guys, I will probably go with the OTRATTW, but they are closed until Nov. 8. I'm going to wait and call them to make sure that I get the right one.

Not sure this will be all that much of a help, but ask around for a shop that sells and installs components for emergency vehicles. They have a very wide range of switches due to the different vehicles they service (police cars, ambulances, fire trucks etc). Not to mention I've always been a fan of buying from a local company instead of a conglomerate. Money spent local, stays local!!
