    Do you have a wiring diagram for how you are planning this by any chance? I would love to do the same thing for my UpTop lights

    This is a really crude drawing of it, but see my post from before:
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Looks good. Are you not planning on any additional relays? I remember DSIMsaying something about needing one for over heating

    That's one thing I didn't draw in, as I was mainly focused on the switches and splitters, but yes, I plan on running relays for the lighting.

    Received both of my puddle light switches today.
    Thanks for the note. The reason I ordered two switch kits is I have two Tacos, both with your puddle lights.
    Oh and I just ordered two Pro Shift knobs with ECT switch.
    It has been a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Since I have the ect shift knob I was going to put the switch where the oem ect switch was located. Is there a ground in that area? Additionally, what’s the best way to route the wiring to the a pillar from there? Thanks ahead of time.

    Is the new switch supposed to light up at all or have any back lighting? I just installed mine and everything seems to be working but I thought the switch was supposed to have some blue back lighting.

    If you have the FIRST ORIGINAL puddle kits, the T harness in the A pillar did not have the illumination tap. I revised it right after for all kits going forward to include it. Easy way to tell; if the 4 wires coming off the main T are All BLACK(first version), if they are colored(red, green, yellow, black) it has the illumination. Not a big deal, the black wire coming off the back of the new puddle switch just has to tap to any illumination wire. PM me and I can help you. Here’s a pic showing the current harness with te colors
