4 wheel drive switch

I was wondering if the 4 wheel drive switch mounted on the dash should light-up when the lights are on. I was driving tonight in the snow and needed to switch to 4 wheel and I couldn't see the switch, had to feel around for it while slipping around in snow covered ice. Just wondering before my 2008 goes out of warranty. I have only had the truck for two months and this is the first time I had to use 4 wheel.

The switch is not lighted from the factory. You can light it up with the RCBS led light board.

this guy sells the kits ready to install. he'll do custom colors as well if needed. i've been running one in my truck for over 6 months now. the stock color one he sells is a damn close match.

EDIT: ^^ beat by a minute
