yea, mine has a blank spot where your fog light switch is. i was hoping to find a switch that would fit there....to use as my winch kill switch. it is going to run a relay, so not a lot of draw...just need a toggle switch really...

That is a spare switch panel I picked up at the junk yard,I would start there if you want to look factory,the switch panel you have does have the blank cut out for a switch but no molded clip in the back of the panel.

yes..has the blank cut out. was hoping someone found an aftermarket switch that fit in that spot..even if it isn't a direct fit, i just want it to be close.

i can add any switch i want, anywhere i want...just wanted to try and use that spot

My fog lights stopped working and I am assuming the switch has gone bad. I understnd the circuits have a habit of melting thus causing the contact not to be made. Also I think there is a relay switch inside the engine compartment...right? My question is: Can just the fog light switch be replaced without replacing the entire panel and if so can I find it online somewhere? Please advise. Thanks Much!!

I've successfully picked up a few used OEM XJ dash switch panels from ebay.
And yes the switch is removeable from the panel.

Dirtbound makes a nice one like that as well.

I like the ashtray replacement one better but it only works on pre-97. The Dirtbound version I mean.

On Board Air USA carries some nice switches that are direct replacements.

Some more direct replacements, these are pretty much the same as above but a little cheaper.
