Default Window switch HELP!

So apparently I have one of those trucks that is rare or were put together on the cheap. Either way, every time I go to look for a part its seems to be non existent. So here I am at the mercy of all you awesome folks who possess a plethora (that means many) of knowledge. There is that enough buttering up because I can keep going. LOL

Ok so here's the dealio. My truck is a 99 2500 4x4 with the diesel. a few months ago the switch on the drivers side that rolls the passenger window up and down broke inside. I took it apart but there was no fixing it as the super thin copper metal spring clip broke and since I'm not a 19th century watch repairman I need to find a new switch with the pigtail. Here is a picture of the switch location as well as the switch out of the truck. The auto parts place can't find it and I've called around to a few junkyards with no luck.

So I asking if anyone out there might have access to other places or have one of these little Devils just laying around. If someone can locate one, I will make it worth your time and effort. My truck does not have the fancy trim package like the SLT or whatever else was available that year. That might be the reason this is so hard to find.

Let me know what you guys think. If you can find one at a reasonable price I will like I said make it worth your while.

Unfortunately they wont work, completely different mounting and plug configuration. Those are made for the flat large cluster switch assembly units. I found lots of those at the junkyard.

You may need to get the VIN number, get a friendly Dodge parts guy to look up the number by the VIN and do a search by part number. Who knows....they might have one gathering dust somewhere.

Yep, here's what I found out. I took the truck to a local guy that has his own Auto Electric shop, been in business for years and in fact him and his dad owned a NAAPA store here like 25 years ago. This guy is like Rain-man when it comes to this stuff. He took one look in my truck and said that the switches were after market. So that might mean that my truck came from the factory with manual roll windows.

That's when I realized I was going about finding a new switch all wrong. I got the name off the side of the switch and did some more investigating and google searches and came up with this.

I sent an email to one of the companies that sells this to see if they could take a picture of the plug from the open end to confirm. We'll see. But I am hopeful now.
