    Hello all i have a 2017 tacoma and I installed some Caliraised lights using their switches and the switch panel I also installed an ARB compressor but that swiths wont fit in the OEM hole any suggestions on alternate switches or install tips. I expanded the port and got the switch to fit but the panel is too reassessed and you cant operate the rocker switch

    I have a 2010 2.7 4x4 that was not prewired at the factory for fog lights, and i’d like to add the OEM fogs to the truck. Does anyone know if there is a company that makes a wiring harness with the relay and factory switch connector that would be semi plug and play? I already have the OEM fogs and want to use the OEM switch, so I don’t want to buy something like the Winjet fog kit just to get their wiring harness.

    Yeah, I gots boost
    You could go with something like THIS for your switch, just cut the ends off of your OEM fogs, and build your own wiring harness. With a little bit of wire, a 12v relay, and some tools you could do it pretty easily. I could walk you through it no problem. It would save you a decent chunk of change along the way.

    Hell, flip me a few bucks for my time and the cost of the parts and I could probably make you something pnp...

    I might take you up on the offer... I don’t have much experience with electrical wiring and i’m afraid i’m going to burn the truck down if I attempt to make my own harness!

    Anyone know where I can find plug and play male plug for this white receptacle? It is for the dimmer circuit tied into the headlights. The female was just hanging there so I thought if a can get a matching plug could use as dimmer for multiple add on switches. It only has the one green wire in a 5 prong plug. Located left of steering wheel.

    Not particularly. Member Havoc showed me something I hadn’t known before in that each oem switch is wired to these two dash light junctions and that rather than using T-taps or buying expensive break out harnesses you can diy with these terminals and some wire or plug/play with terminal repair wires. Just spreading the news a bit.

    I am definitely not using t-taps that’s for sure. Thanks for the info!
