    I emailed them a pic and he said "no prob". Same prices as all the others on their site. My guess is they can't advertise a middle finger lol

    I haven't actually done the mod yet. I'm still in South Korea and my truck is at my folks house in Georgia. I'll be home next week and that's when I plan to start adding all the goodies I've ordered while I've been in Korea.

    I'll be doing a writeup on the switch install and I can let you know how I do it then. :thumbsup:


    Looks amazing! I really like your custom mount for the sunglasses holder!

    ottrattw.net has different switches then otrattw.com just so everyone knows. otrattw.net has trouble adding stuff to the cart though, at least for me. so I guess you could look on both sites then make a list of what you wanted and call them. Military gets a 10% discount as well.

    any update guys? i did mine the other night, wired the switch out to the existing wiring, apparently the OEM fog light switch uses ground to activate the oem factory relay? with this, i can not get the top LED on the new switch to illuminate. anyone else run into this issue?

    I'll be doing mine tomorrow or Friday. I'm just waiting on the rest of my CB parts to arrive since I don't want to tear my interior apart more than once. I'll see what I can do about the top active LED. I'll have my write up done by Saturday and I'll add a blurb about the circuit to make the LED activate. It may require re-wiring how the fog lights activate. :confused:

    I did, I'll be posting the writeup in about 10 hours or so. I'm at work and I have the writeup on my computer at home.

    krob32 - what type of OTRATTW switch did you use to replace the stock fog switch? I want to replace mine, having the "fog light" lettering on all the time and the symbol illuminate when the fogs are on. Little confused with the ground contact switch Toyota installed.
