I will be installing a set of IPF 968 lights before long, but I have absolutely NO plans on using the hideous switch that it comes with... I plan on cutting the factory switch off and using female flag disconnects that will lead to a rocker switch. I just want to make sure that I get the right switch... I figure I would be good with a 20 amp 3-pole rocker... Anybody with knowledge on the subject is more than welcome to chime in. Thanks!

So I decided to take the question straight to ARB... To my surprise, I actually got a straight answer and some helpful info (I didn't realize the load on the switch was so low)... Hope it helps someone else down the road.

Most people are happy enough with the one supplied, but as the switch carries virtually no load (it only turns on the relay) virtually any switch can be used in its place by splicing the harness. I personally used an OE rocker on one of my own Jeeps as it was a better solution so I understand your desire to do something different. You should find that the 968 switch harness has basically 3 wires. One is the input lead which will be the long yellow wire coming into the connector, one will be ground that is there for the switch lamp to illuminate and the 3rd is the output of the switch that turns on the relay itself. The load will be under 2 amps through the switch. Your warranty will remain intact on the lights themselves, but obvious not cover the wiring harness as a result of your modifications. If you have further questions please let me know.
