off-road lighting switch

I wanted to but a set of Black Magic lights behind the grill of my 04 ram and wondered where people put the switch on their truck. Also if I ran the 100w bulb if I would need to install a bigger fuse?

I didnt have any problems with the 100 watt bulb on my 02 Ram. Beside the people in front of me not being able to see. I mount the switch on the left side of the dash bezel next too the headlight switch. Can find a pic of it.

I mounted mine in the flat area immediately to the right of the headlight knob (at the 2 o'clock relative to Mudchucker's mounting location).

The green switch that comes with the Black Magics is really bright, so I substituted a smaller round one from Advance Auto Parts that has a little red 1mm LED. I've got the lights mounted behind the grille, but I'm going to move them out front once my light bar shows up. I'll probably upgrade to the 100W bulbs soon, too.

It is safer that way.
