    All,

    Has anyone found switches or USB power outlets that will precisely fit the empty switch blanks on our gen 1 trucks? I am talking about the two spaces below the radio beside the two power outlets and the one or two by the panel dimmer switch.
    I have ordered two different styles from Amazon and neither fit. I may need to go with some sort of modified Toyota OEM switch, unless someone can link me to a direct fit aftermarket.

    What's wrong with trimming a little?

    These switches you look up are meant to fit a different standard size; aftermarket panels for onboard switches, etc.

    Just get someone to 3d print you the "fitting" and put said switch inside that.

    I thought this spot was a very uncomfortable place to put a switch.
    Maybe if it’s not something you’re gonna be turning off and on often.

    my opinion

    This is ultimately what I used. Switch from Amazon, Scion OEM style lighted rocker switch. Oznium. I used it for control of my power outlets, like to have the option of either on or off without ignition.

    Thanks for all the replies and insights.

    My OCD kicked in again, changed the label to white on clear, looks much better!
