    For what it's worth, I think the light blue matches the OEM switches better:

    Also, this is awesome, and I want it.

    I'll link to the other thread. The attachments in that thread are not mine so I will not be posting them without permission. Thank you for the suggestion, I should have done that in the first place.

    Man, that card has some serious typos, and could use some more info on trac, vsc probably. (And a warning to not print on laser without laminating.)

    But I am blaming you all... come one guys, proof some stuff! JK

    Btw, I am using the AOB switch on the lh side of the steering wheel. The color and button shape are pretty good, but not perfect.

    I didnt bother wiring up the dimmer line on the switch.. I just wired the switch to illuminate when 2whl lo was active.

    Plug and play looks good to me! 99% sure latching switch required, but is momentary also possible?

    Will this enable to rear locker to think that the truck is in low and be able to activate it as well?

    If so, I am in!

    Latching switch required in order to keep the relays pulled in. If I make up a relay board I can use latching relays but I'm not a fan of latching relays.

    This essentially puts the truck in a state of 4Lo without having the front axle engaged. @BigWhiteTRD can confirm, but everything that works in 4Lo should work in 2Lo.

    No, I don't. Sorry, I realize it sounded like I was speaking from personal experience. AoB indicates that it is a more accurate match, and I've read several comments on TW that the light blue does in fact match better. I've also seen many comments that the regular blue does not match (too bright and too blue), but there are several DIY solutions to make them match better.

    No problem. I need a switch for my install anyway so I ordered one of each to see what they look like.

    Figured as much but no worries! Curious to see final product so I can buy one. Been waiting for something like this for a while.

    Location wise, I know. Just wanted to give an idea of how their switches look cosmetically and all... too bad it's a poor picture.

    I have the 'blue' , not 'light blue' I believe. It's not a great match. I dont know if the light blue is better, but I assume so.

    For this mod as it stands now, you can engage locker (per my memory) when in 2lo... BUT the truck is still in low range...

    So it's not lock anytime by any means.

    Its 2wd low (locked) for OR or PRO models (as it sits today)

    Yeah I realized in this one that it would not gain me the functionality that I am looking for. I thought it was a trick the case into thinking you were in 4LO but it is not.
