    Recently bought a used 08 TRD Sport, speedway blue. I came from 2 F150's and this is my favorite truck I've owned so far.

    If someone could please tell me what these buttons do, I'd greatly appreciate it. I've looked through the manual and couldn't find anything.

    The one on the left and RSCA

    And then the small black one.

    Also, I just recently bought the 3" OME lift with the spacers with the newer front sport shocks (ones that replaced N140S) What are your opinions on this system? Im not much of an off-roader, just a bro. May take it in the sand or in an field occasionally.

    And one last thing. Anyone live around the Jacksonville NC area that knows where I could get the system installed and then some wheels/tires and not get ripped off?


    Thanks for any help.

    Those are definitely switches put in by the previous owner...gotta test it and follow the wires to find out what they do :D

    Ok so RSCA after a search.."It turns off the Side Curtain Airbags for situations like off roading."

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Alright, the left switch in your pic as well as the switch on your stereo are put on there by someone else for whatever reason. My guess would maybe be some lights for the left side toggle switch, no idea for the one on the stereo. Trace the wires and find out. The RSCA button... Side Curtain Airbags have a roll-sensing deployment feature that will inflate the curtain airbags at severe tilt angles, or in a roll condition. So if you are wheeling the truck would be the only time to turn that off.

    I think the OME lift is a great kit. I have done a lot of homework and that is the kit I decided on for my truck. It is sitting in the garage waiting to go on whenever I can get to it...

    Welcome :wave:

    Wow, that's a nice truck. Leave the pinstripe on it. Looks good.
