    I’m sadly still on the hunt for a rocker switch for my 2003 Tacoma. Wanting one with printing on it oriented so it can install horizontally in the blanks under the radio. Anyone have any they used? Also how did you decide which one in terms of pins and lights. I guess ideally it should be lit when the interior lights are on so I can see it in the dark. The options get overwhelming and confusing quickly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    It might help to know Just what your Switch should say?? Does it need to Read right to left or left to right??

    You buy the Switch to preform the Task you need it to do.

    How many amp load does it need to carry ??

    Single throw or double throw ??

    Just what does the switch need to do?? That is how you buy the switch
