    I just installed some PIAA lights and hate the switch that came with it, im trying to find a switch that will go in the OEM location to replace it. Any ideas??

    Get an OEM fog light switch. Doesn't get much more OE looking than that. The one of the left is factory fogs, the one on the right is a factory switch that runs a set of PIAA 520's.

    You don't need a harness for the factory switch. They can be manually wired up. It's a pain with those tiny tabs but it can be done. I did not buy the harness for the set-up I'm running.

    I didn't use the harness either but if I were to do it again I would. Definitely a lot easier and more convenient

    I like both of these. I am using the second one listed. These can be purchased at the dealer for about $12.

    If you have an Off Road TRD 4WD there are no blanks, so I had to drill and install these switches (from Radio Shack)... note that the top one is a plug, because there wasn't enough clearance behind to fit the switch in!

    First, see my filled TRD switch area:

    The blue switch is for the HIDs and the red switch is for the Hella halogen spots.

    I never did measure it. Just did a teeny bit of trimming and my two switches fit like a glove.

    Where do you have to trim? Sides? or the Top and/or Bottom where it clips in?
