    I am hooking axillary cargo lights up to the back rack of my truck. I'm going to hook them to a switch on my dash simple enough. but I would also like to install a switch in the box of my truck. I would like to be able to turn the lights on from inside the truck or outside the truck. I know how to use relays I know how basic wiring works just looking for maybe some diagrams. I just want to make sure I do it properly I'm using led toggle switches and I don't want any back feed. I'm wondering if I can run the wire from each switch into one relay but just want to be sure. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated thank you

    Ya im trying to do it with, spst self illuminating toggle switches. so it matches my custom switch panel. I want it just on/off from the box of the truck. And an extra on/off from the cab of truck. Both able to switch the same light. So its not really a "3 way switch" . Cuz if one switch was on the other switch would not do anything
