Anyone ever done this before? Is the stuff already there, or are harness mods required?

On the newer models if you want to have a switch that keeps the individual light off, you install a switch on the power going to positive side of the bulb holder.

If you want to be able to turn it on independently, you would install a switch that breaks the ground going to the relay and grounds the negative side of the bulb holder.

I can show you on a wiring digram if you would like.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore & go about your business.
