I'm installing a new set of driving lights on the front bumper. No problem there, I've done this part many times. HOw though do I get access to the switch blanks in the dash?? What do I need to remove to get the switch panel to come out so I can put my rocker switch in one of the spaces??

Good deal!! Imagine this, the wiring harness is too short!! I guess the rest of this project will have to wait till I get home from hunting on Sunday.
I had the same problem as this. I was short about a foot of wire for the rocker switch and I was really pushing it to get the relay mounted to the wheel well like the directions tell you. I'm pretty sure it was due to the way I ran my wires. I wanted them out of the way and hidden so I snaked them along with the wire looms running up towards the firewall. I almost didn't have enough wire to run to the lights on the windshield bracket also--I ran the wires for that along the fire wall up to where the cowl induction comes through the fire wall (There is foam around where the vent area on top of the hood enters the engine compartment--Just worked the wires through the foam) then around to the lights. It was a time consuming process but it looks good. As far as mounting the switch I drilled a hole in the plastic cover to the right of the steering column, IMO this made the set up look better. The switch that came with the light kit looked nothing like my stock switches and I thought it might look out of place in that particular location. just my 2 cents though. Good luck on the rest of your install.
heres a tip for ya DART... get some 12 gauge wire and run your own harness, this will make it a little better than those cheap shitty harnesses they give you with the lights plus you will be able to draw more power to the lights to make them work properly. and if you feel real ambutious run a relay to the switch this will bypass alot of wiring you will have to do. good luck

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
You could drill a hold through the fire wall, and run the wire through this way its able to reach the switch. Right behind the glove box is pretty easy. But you may have to get an O ring to put in place so you don't short it out.
