Need more context.

Is that a dual switch (meaning one button on top, and one button on bottom)?

What are the individual colors for the switch to each component wire (i.e. is red "for sure" power, black ground, blue accessory, are the yellows backlit switch LEDs?), and how do those line up with the pre-fab switch that comes on the Baha rocker switch?

I just installed Squadron Sport pods on mine, so maybe check out that install write up...I think I covered how the switch wires lined up to an AOB switch...

They know they are preying on unsuspecting customers. Their lack of instructions and putting "You MUST use a relay" is a way of saving face. These switches are used to trigger a backlight on the buttons when the vehicle is on, to trigger a positive current to activate relay 1 (you have to buy separately), and to trigger a positive current to activate relay 2 (also sold separately).

Rant aside, relays such as this is what you will need to buy to run this in your setup. Amazon.com: 5 Pack 40/30 AMP 12 V DC Waterproof Relay and Harness - Heavy Duty 12 AWG Tinned Copper Wires, 5-PIN SPDT Bosch Style Automotive Relay: Industrial & Scientific

You need 1 if you want to run the entire circuit on 1/2 of the buttons on that switch. You will need 2 if you want to use both buttons.

I don't have my electronics/programming software on this computer, so I will hurry and draw you up a crappy version with good old paint. I'll post it in a second. Turned out like crap haha! I'll pm it to you, just ask me if you have any questions
The squadron comes with cables that has relay built in already (attached picture 1)

And hereís the switch with the 3 wires that came with it.

On the switch that came with your Bajas, each wire should have a symbol where its connected. Generally, switches top to bottom go
1:Red "HOT"
2:White "Relay"
3:Black "Ground".

Not sure how yours came wired, but the above is just a guess based on other wiring toggles I've seen come with wiring kits.

If you're doing two sets, you'd want to do a second wiring kit and relay, and then do the same wiring pattern to the dual switch you would be using. The relay cable is what would differentiate the two.

Looks like Tundra guys have it figured out for a factory switch.
