Default Plug in Fog switch LEDS from Superbright

So after trying several different LED options for the foglight switch I finally have one I am happy with.

I picked up 2 nano T3 SMD plug in LED from super bright for a grand total of $6 heres the photo story of how they worked out.

The LEDs I used



Installed in the fog switch



Heres the new plug in ones vs the old soldered in LEDs



Side by side illumination shot top switch is a 2500mcd LED seen above. The bottom is the SMD plug in. big difference right!



Both switches on, top Modded with an amber LED





I also have some Nano T4s for the headlight switch and 4x4 switch that I will be installing soon.

it can't be a stock ranger bezel with 2 switches there, and as far as I know the explorer ones that did have the two switches for fog lights and rear defroster had a rear wiper control, not a 12v outlet. the explorer ones also had 4auto, 4hi, 4lo instead of 2,4,4lo on the 4x4 knob.

If it is stock like that, I want to know what year/model it came from! that would sure make it easy to get 2 switches!

I'm pretty sure Mikerider modded an expo bezel to fill in the rear wiper insert & convert the rear wiper button into the 12v outlet.

I've done a dozen or so expo bezels like that. As far as I know, there are no stock ranger bezels with 2 fog switch holes & 2 12v outlets... I've seen them with 2x 12v outlets & 1 fog switch opening, but not 2 fogs.
