    So what's the deal with there not being a panel light for the fog lamps? Its kind of a pain in the rear to not know when those lights are on or off. Anyone know or have anything to say on this!! :mad:

    I have a button on the left side of my steering wheel which toggles my fog lights on and off

    There's not a light indicator... and if you push the button in, the lights on, you can feel if it's pushed in or not to find out, plus you should notice the lights being on or off.

    Thats my point, there should be an indicator. Simply relying on a button to tell you if they are on is a bad design. IMO

    so ur complaining about the style that the button was created, not the fact that we have a button that allows us to control our fog lights..

    All my vehicles have had fog lights and this is the first to not have either a light that activates on the switch, or a light that activates in the gauge cluster. I agree there should be some sort of light.

    It may be a simple nuisance thing, but it's the little things that add up. No lights on cruise control controls, no lighted 4wd switch(simple fix, but still) no light for fog lights, etc. If our trucks are so superior I don't think it's that much to ask IMO to have simple basic things like that that most other vehicles have.
