Look for a DPST keyed switch.
I will sell you a padlock lock for $24.00 delivered.

Not that I know of.
There are some for hmmwvs but not correct circuit configuration:
if it were mine. I woul make up a jumper to go from existing gi cable to the new switch.
It could be made from scrap gI harness wire ends very simply.
Hope that this helps.

If you are looking for security, install a battery cut-off in the battery box and put a padlock on the passenger seat.

No scrap gi wiring. I think I will go with a original on/off switch if I can find one. I NEED THE SWITCH AND TOGGLE PART. Mine is missing both.
