Eaton E-locker with Rubicon Switch

Replaced my rear Rubi D44 with a D60 running and Eaton E-locker. If I run it to my stock Rubi locker switch (press once for rear locker, press again for front) it should work. From what I understand since the Eaton does not use a plunger in the diff there will be no activation of the dash light indicating the rear is locked. I Is there a way to enable the light? If not, how will I know when the rear is locked at a glance without putting it on a separate switch?

2016 Rubicon HR with a few stock parts still remaining on it.

Good question. Surely someone has delt with the issue before. Question is what is the voltage output of the stock wiring? Not every output on the JK is 12v but I can't see why the locker wires would not be.

I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
