Cool Converting dimmer switch to floor mount type ?

If there is one thing that I really dislike about newer cars + trucks (1980-on) it is the steering collum mounted headlight dimmer switch. I know that your are supposed to drive with 2 hands, but in the real world that doesn't happen sometimes. Like when you are holding a cup of coffee, etc. etc. I've got a '98 Toyota 4runner the I would really like to put in a floor mounted dimmer switch in. I was wondering if anyone has ever done that on their vehicle.
Thanks in advance.

if your car is anything like my astro the switch is located at the bottom of the steering collum, mine just has a rod the gose up the collume to the dimmer. mine looks easy to pull the switch and move it

Finding the right wires to bypass your factory dimmer switch should be the hardest part. I have never converted to a floor switch but have changed a floor switch to a toggle switch with no problems.
