    So when I installed my foglight setup, I used the factory wiring. But I chopped out the factory plug for the fog light switch in favor of an old style rocker switch. What I'm wanting to do now is make it look a little more factory by installing a factory switch, but for the life of me, I can't find a part # for a pig-tail for the factory plug that goes into the switch. Does one exist? I've tried all the searches on various parts sites, and have come up empty.

    you could also buy a MOLEX connector from an electronics store and cut the plastic tab off of it. That's what I did. It was a nice snug fit and I don't worry about it coming off at all on its own.

    Standard Molex will fit the OEM switches?

    I am not sure if it was the "stander" molex or not, but I bought some from Fry's Electronics and just had to trim the little tab and it worked brilliantly.

    Solder straight to the switch's tabs. Easiest and cheapest option... :cool:

    Got my tracking number today.

    It doesn't look like a UPS number (doesn't start with a 1Z), and FedEx doesn't have it in their system, so I'm assuming it's USPS (which is my preferred anyways).

    So placed the order on the 13th, marked "paid" the 16th, and got my tracking number the 20th.

    No... I'm not impressed with Vandergrif Toyota.

    Now, I also ordered a set of floor mats... but all products showed "in stock", so there's no obvious reason for the long delay.
