    Looking forward to that release (Start button) as well as your others.

    Hey I don't know if you caught my last suggestion on the start button but there is a way to make the button light up different colors depending on the engine status. For example the ignition button could light up "WHITE" or "GREEN" etc. for start and once the engine starts the button could light up "RED" to kill the engine. My wife's 2020 RDX has this feature and its pretty cool. Anyway look forward to your rendition.

    Awesome, so excited for this! Been wanting this since I first installed them back on original release! This will come in very handy.

    Man I’ve bought a bunch from you since you opened your store. I have a nice long list building, once again lol! You da man! Quality stuff here!

    All this positive feedback regarding the puddle pods has me so stoked for my early Christmas present to myself like @MESO posted on Instagram earlier! Been stalking my email inbox daily waiting for it to say “Your order has been shipped” - his Black Friday deal was legit! I’ve got some dome lights coming way too. Feeling like a little kid waiting on Xmas morning...

    You won’t be disappointed. Been running red domes and the puddle pods since summer, and I’m super satisfied. It’s amazing how much I’ve come to rely on the puddle pods at night. They make a huge difference.

    Will you start selling the custom switch panels once you start selling the switches?

    Can I ask why the change in position? Auto at the bottom is messing with my OCD.

    Factory bed light switch has auto in the center as well. just curious what the reasoning was here.

    The internal circuity of the switch. In the middle position, it does not allow any wires to pass through and make contact(hence it will be "OFF")
    Top position connects ground and puddle(making it "ON") and the Bottom connects Puddle with the original wire(making it "AUTO")
    The only was around this was to change the mold and internal metal pins of the switch and it was just not cost effective at this time.

    True.

    Also note that while the bed light switch, the map light switch as well if anyone cares, have "AUTO" or "DOOR" in the middle position both are:
    • Horizontal rather than verticle
    • COMPLETELY the F different size, shape, and style than any other switch in the truck

    @MESO has created a switch that:
    • Fits the small Toyota switch hole
    • Will work on the left, overhead, OR center switch panel (though you may need to extend the wires for center or overhead panel)
    • Illuminates very closely to the OEM color and function
    • Will work exactly as advertised while appearing to be OEM to most
    EDIT: I think the switch is ideal in the current format and am axiously waiting the release.

    My guy stew! When the switches are ready are you going to announce a release date like you did for your fobs? Or are you just gonna release it randomly and say “SUPRISEEEEEEE!” lol

    Do you have a time machine so I can go back last week and order one then. Didn’t know I would need one for this until now, and they are sold out.

    I know this will go against what most people are looking for but has anyone dulled down the light output a bit with a product like nightshade tint etc? Love this mod but I have a feeling the output will be a bit brighter than I would like.

    You can look into the light for a short second, then everything will become dimmer.









    But ye, tinting it shouldn't be hard.
    I think some have even put colored tint on theirs.
