WILL THIS WORK TO LIGHT THE 4x4 SWITCH?

'08 DC SB SR5 TRD

Guys,

I have an idea to light the 4x4 switch.

It looks like the switch is able to hold a bulb but Toyota chose to put in a plastic blank.

I'm thinking of somehow glueing a bulb (a bulb from the buttons that control "LSD Off" and the like).

Would an expoxy work to hold that bulb in or is there some kind of "circuit board glue"?

Would this bulb cause some kind of short burning down my rig?

What do you guys think? Maybe someone already has done this?

I attached some photos to show what I'm on about.

You can follow this guide and it will take you forever and you may break something and it won't look all that great.

Do yourself a favor and buy rcbs204's product. Everyone who has one is very happy.

what if you just install the bulb from the 4runner switch into the Tacoma switch?

wouldn't that work?
