    Anybody out there wire up their rock lights to function as courtesy lights? I want to use an on-off-on switch to wire up the lights so that in one of the on positions the lights come on with the dome light I.e. when the truck is unlocked. The other on position would obviously activate them whenever switched to that position. Trying to find a good way to tap into the dome light circuit. I was hoping to use an add-a-fuse on the dome circuit but it appears that fuse is always hot, not only when the dome light is on.

    Your making it sound like the dimmer for the dome light is on the ground. Thought they flipped that with the mid test refresh. For instance my dash circuit dimmer is on the ground side of the circuit instead of the typical power side.

    So for your rock lights wound be need to be wired to power, and the switch wound be on the ground side. Flip it one way and the ground would go through the dome light ground. And the other direction wound be straight to ground

    I finally sprayed out the radiator and coolers today.... so much Moab dirt packed in there. I’m surprised the thing cooled at all.

    Just a heads up, saw a Tacoma on Facebook where they were drilling fuel tanks at night. Imagine it’s to steal the fuel but who knows. Waiting for location info.

    This has been going on for years. On the old metal tanks it was a large hammer and center punch. Watch out for the cat thieves also.
