    In my 05 Tacoma Extended Cab I only had 2 blank slots for switches, and those are now used..
    Where have you guys put all your switches at?
    Thanks in Advance!

    Ahhh, I've seen guys put a line of switches on the plastic just underneath the climate controls. There's a thread around here somewhere that shows just how he did it. I'll see if I can find it.

    You don't really care, do you.
    I have the exact same red switch in the exact same spot as yours. It is used to turn on my cb/pa system. Easiest place ever to put a switch, and the lit switches are high visibility so you don't leave them on and kill your battery on non-ignition powered devices.
