    Hey folks...just picked up an Auxbeam light bar...I don't care for the switch that came with it. I have an open slot on the left side of the steering wheel...its the stubby switch not the taller one. Anyone got a link to a switch that will fit the stubby spot (blue light preferred)? I tried search but still not sure of fitment...and Amazon hasn't really helped. I like this one but I think its for the taller slot not the short one. https://www.amazon.com/MICTUNING-Push-Switch-Connector-Toyota/dp/B0117B189M?th=1 Any help appreciated. I trust you guys personal experience more than Amazon ratings. thanks. 17 DCSB SR

    I have a ch4x4 switch and I can't say I'm thrilled with it. The illumination is very spotty and the top half of the switch bleeds into the bottom half when lit. I wish I could find one that is nice an clean similar to the OEM switches.

    Are you mounting it in the extra hole to the left of the steering wheel? As far as I can see from their website, they don't have any switches that will fit in that hole.
