    Hey guys tried to search but can't find a definitive answer. I just bought a new 2010 tacoma and am in the process of lighting up my 4x4 switch. I have seen some other pictures on here of the steering wheel audio controls lit up as well. How do I go about doing this? Thanks for any help...

    Yes. You turn on your lights and they light up.

    Pretty sure that the cruise controls is painted onto a solid black base. I think it would require a TON of work just to get that lit up... Including repainting, and swapping out the piece for a clear plastic piece, painting it black, etc.

    Really!? Doesn't bug me a bit, but then again I never use my cruise so it might as well just not be there. Funny how we all have those little things that bug us about our trucks, and other people are just like WTF? haha

    Don't need to light it. Just use it and go by memory.
    button-turn on or off
    down-set or decel
    up-accel or resume
    pull to cancel or button to turn off.
