1: One toggle switch for turn signal and one toggle switch for hazard
2: two toggle switches for turn signal and 1 toggle switch for hazard?
3; Just two toggle switches for turn signal and turn both on at the same time for hazards?

If you want just two switches (#2) then ou will need two switches like this:

It's easier to use the original or aftermarket turn signal switch

Unless you are going to use separate turn signal and brake lights.

The problem is keeping the one brake light on when the turn signal is flashing.....

Thank you. I am trying to wire it off of the original wiring harness if it is possible.

Cut the plug off an original turn signal switch and use those wires. Then it will plug right in.

I am currently using that picture you posted. I have power to the middle pole on an on/off/on switch and turn flasher, and left front and left rear lights hooked up to an on pole and the light come on and I can hear the flasher but the lights aren't flashing.

Flasher is on the power line to the switch so it runs both sides.

Which picture?

Did you just use a Switch?

If you want to experiment, do it like this but the brake lights won't work

This is a great example of how these things increase in complexity very quickly. I had to laugh when I read the whole tread up to the previous diagram. My first thought was that the Jeep would trade hands 3 times, end up back here, and everyone would be trying to understand why in the world the PO had wired things in this manner.

Any particular reason not to just go the easy route and use the OEM design?
