Need some advise.

OK looking for fog light switch that have print on them (I.E. foglight and maybe a fog light logo)

I has seen daystar switches but I have not found one that has print on them but I know they are out there as I have seen them before.

Also want something that will fit in the OEM location.

EDIT: also will be needing a relay what size should I go with?

Try an RV supply place for switches.

Relay? Depends on the fog lights. What wattage?

Get an OEM Cherokee switch at the junkyard, at the Dealership, or at RockAuto.com.

Look up the formula and do the math. A 30-50 amp relay should be big enough.

You should always use a relay for fog lights, using a lo-beam 12v line to run to a switch and than to pin 85 (coil pin) of your relay.
A 30 amp relay will do, this will give you the capability of "up to" 360 watt lighting which is more than adequate for fogs.

I have seen small decals for switches..... IIRC maybe on EBAY.
