OEM fog lamps vs aftermarket

My '05 TJ X didn't come with fog/driving lights and I'd like to add them. MOPAR sells a factory kit with everything including a new multi-function switch for around $220 (eBay). Is this the better option or would an aftermarket set up be less expensive and better? I'm leary of taking apart my steering to install the switch...last vehicle I did this to turned into a nightmare.

BTW: Merry Christmas to all! Hope everyone got what they wanted!!!

the factory set up is the way to go in my opinion. the 05 factory hellas arent cheap to replace tho if you break one

Without digging through the service manual, how involved is replacing the multi-function switch?
