I'm sure anywhere on the vehicle where it would remain out of site, maybe rear cab storage compartment. I personally would just deal with the light.....

in all seriousness though I don't even notice mine on any longer. You get used to it after a while.

Don't make your tape any bigger than 5/8" x 5/8" square or you might block the other lights....

Works for me...

I've got the electric tape mod as well. All I did was clean the gauge glass(or plastic) turn the key to on position to illuminate the gauge lights and turn the cruise on. This shows you where all the lights are so you don't cover the ones you need. Took my electric tape and cut a back slash into it to fit better on the cluster and cut it strait on the other end just long enough to cover the TPMS light but not cover any other. It's worked for 40k miles now, no problems.

The only problem I see with the PVC thing is that it kinda looks like a pipe bomb.

Otherwise it's an awesome DIY fix.

Yes , TW member Crom has a few threads on ABS bypass

Basically it allows you , with a switch , to disable the ABS system for snow / offroad conditions , the byproduct of disabling the ABS is that it shuts down the VSC as well

Sorry , I'm on my phone or I would find you the links
