    Do you have to add / run new wires, or just move the existing wiring?

    maybe its to make the curves/bends more flow friendly and this causes the length to change?

    If you want an FJ switch, I have one that I bought and don't have a use for. I paid $49 shipped. I can send it your way for $40 shipped.

    If interested shoot me a PM.

    Just a little wiring to make it compatible with the 4-pin harness. It's not too complicated. You have to shave a little off of the edges of the hole in the dash to make the larger switch fit in, but it's all hidden and you can't see it. :)

    No problem! I like it a lot actually. Normally I wouldn't mind since the button locks in when it's turned on, but the difference between it sitcking out and locked in is so small that it's kinda hard to tell with a quick glance while driving, so I wanted an actual indicator light. If you follow the link I posted above, you'll need a diode and some wire but it only takes like 5-10 minutes to solder up and then a few minutes to shave a little off of the dash opening to get the larger switch to fit in. When I unplugged the stock switch the connection fell back into the dash and it actually took me longer to fish the 4-pin connection back out than everything else together :anonymous:

    If you want to do a legit swap you can also just buy the 6-pin harness but that was too much work for my lazy ass lol the switch was about $40 on Amazon iirc. you can get the switch and harness together for like $80 some places online.

    Same here--I can tell they're on, but they couldn't put an indicator light on the switch or on the cluster like the headlights have? Really?

    I have a running list...heated mirrors are on it too. A $34,000 midsize truck and they couldn't even do that? A friend used to have a low end 2010 Corolla and she even had them!

    haha yea. I don't quite get it too. I know they're all creature comforts, but at a day in age where automatic headlights are becoming the norm, why the hell cant I have a light that tells me when my fogs are on? especially when there are two switches right next to it that have indicator lights.. :notsure:

    Funny. My '98 Sonoma had that. It's ok. Till it breaks. I do agree that if they are going to keep the Tacoma 'basic', the price needs to drop. But people buy them, so I understand why the price stays up.

    Does this work with OEM DTRL? I know it has been asked about and doesn't work with #45, but what about this one (#30)? :notsure:

    Wanted to share this:

    Thanks for reading. I just created this tutorial video regarding how to treat your engine with Seafoam. I know there are haters that don't believe in it and swear by other products but I love the stuff. It can be used on any engine (gas or diesel), and I've noticed an improvement in performance.

    Enjoy

    I'm looking for a GEN 1 turn signal mod to make them fog lights. I want to make my factory driving lights my turn signals. I would like to make the factory turn signals that are in the front bumper LED.

    Look on the first page, there is a link to the mod (#35 I think). But the mod assumes you have the factory inverter, otherwise you'll have to put one in.
