Rewiring Military Lights

Has anyone rewired the big dial of lights in a MOD rover? Myself and a friend are trying to put in a new switch (carling switch on-off-on) so I can do all lights on, all lights off, and just the running lights but we can't figure out the correct combinations of wires etc to the new switch. If anyone has any info on this or can point me towards an MOD lighting wiring diagram I'd appreciate it.

Yea, we seem to have hit a pretty big wall but if we figure it out I'll take pictures of the set up and what not. I may have to just reconnect the old lights...

Not the carling switch, the current switch.

On a side note, what's the point of replacing with a carling? It's not like the mil switch is difficult to operate and it gives some nice flexibility. If I was going to change it (and I wouldn't), I'd at least choose a Genuine switch that matches the vehicle, not the Jeeper carling option.

I just don't like it because it takes up so much space and I have no need for the military settings.

I got a MUD dash to put a radio in and I just ordered the switches they recommended. Didn't think it'd be much different than other switches.

So I found out that they cut the wires, not a big deal but if you wanted a pic of the back of the switch I'm assuming you'd want it with the wires connected. The best I could do is zoom in on the wiring diagram

The military switch comes in handy when you're running from the cops at night and don't want your brake lights illuminating when you pull in the woods and hit the brakes.

If you are running NVG's they are a must.

Haha that actually makes a lot of sense. Didn't really realize that's why they were set up that way.
