Courtesy light switch

I need info on the door switch to activate the courtesy lights. Could someone please post a foto???? Or a part #...???
( 1978 J20)

the factory holes in the panel are .450" I would buy used ones if someone has 1 or 2....even if they are not working....at least I'll know what to look for in the Dorman catalog or LMC truck.

I do know that the switch will provide a ground when the door is open.
My wiring harness is a Painless one that provides constant power to the lights and the switch provides a ground to complete the circuit when the door is open.

The .450" dimension of the existing holes is the reason I am asking for info/help/
Thanks

Exclamation re:courtesy light switch

Try looking up Team Grand Wagoneer. select grand wagoneer- lighting. Page one has a "door ajar switch " listed with a picture & description. Hope this helps

I'd be brilliant if I could remember tomorrow what I learned today!

Thanks for the response,....that switch is a 2 connector which had me wondering....
I am thinking it's a single connector that uses a body ground.
I found one on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

But I'm wondering if it will fit and adjust properly......
