    I am using a Sno Bear plow on my 08 Tacoma truck which uses a winch to raise and lower plow. Until a few days ago the wire for the control of the winch was run outside. I pulled the wire for the switch through the firewall on Friday. I would like to find a "Momentary Rocker switch" which will fit one of the blank knock outs for switches to the left of the steering wheel. Does anyone know where to locate one that will push right in? I don't want to cut anything to make the original switch fit.

    as for push right in no, but you can modify that blank to get one to work. if another user can chime in for one that fits then more power to em.

    as for a momentary switch, its just that, a momentary switch, split second of signal is sent through, is this what you need?

    The switch terminology is "SPDT" momentary. In the catalog it will say it in brackets of " (on) off (on) ". As for finding one that looks exactly like Toyota switches, I have no idea where to send him. Carling Switch is a major switch manufacturer and should have many choices close to what you seek, but not exact.
