Default Light switches

I tried searching but I didnt find anything. I hope this is not a repost, but I am looking to get some switches for the 4 Hella lights I am going to put on my light bar. What kind of switches do you guys use? Thanks for any help.

I'm using three Daystar switches which are made by Carling technologies.

I was just going to mention Jim's site. I ordered a bunch of switches from him as well. Ordered on Monday, received on Wednesday via USPS. He doesn't waste any time getting stuff to you.

The factory switch slots require very minor trimming for the Daystar/Carling switches to be fitted.

A file or a dremal tool can get the job done...
