    I found this on ebay. It doesn't specifically say that it would work on a 2010 (or 2nd gen tacoma) but the dimensions seem about on par with that of others that have been posted. While not keeping a completely stock look, I think it matches the push button fairly well...

    What are all your thoughts? I just wanted to share as a fairly quick search didn't seem to bring up anything on this.

    Well that appears to be a match for my Tacoma factory fog lights. I went to the dealer and got the lighted switch. This way when my off road lights are on, there's a orange light on the switch that's on. Helps you see it's on during the day. It looks stock & fits.

    Looks like a 1st gen switch.

    Thanks guys, the Contura switches look nice but I really want to stay with the stock look.
    When you say it looks like a 1st gen switch, I assume that means it won't work in the 2nd gen? If not, this appears to be an FJ switch but I've seen others use it (or so it seems) http://www.trdparts4u.com/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=-6947

    that is a switch that is from 90's toyota cars. it's not a factory fit on the 2nd gen tacomas. It will fit the factory slots on the 1st gen tacomas.

    Thanks everyone. I was hoping that it could fit with some minor shaving or something, like the conturas. I guess I'll just keep my eyes open.

    May I ask where the OTRATTW switches are made? I want to keep my 4runner as un-Chinese as possible, so if I have to buy Whelen switches to do so, so be it. But I LOVE the looks of the OTRATTW switches!
