    Curious for the LED back lighting on the Toyota style switches you can get from CH4x4 etc as to what color people are going with.

    Seems like the dash color is a mix between blue and white, can't decide which to go with as to what matches the original ones the best.

    Was most likely going to be getting mine from CH4x4

    Referring to switches like this

    I went with a simple $11 mictuning switch (from Amazon) in red mainly because it sits between a red dual battery switch and red dual battery gauge.

    I went with the blue, they are a little brighter than stock but I've got a idea I need to try to fix that when I've got some free time to mess around

    had a feeling you meant that one haha.
    I'm trying to find one just like that but not from australia hoping for a cheaper price but I think I won't be able to as I've looked everywhere
    How'd you mount the battery switch? Trying to figure out a good way to mount it since it doesn't fit in a factory toyota slot.

    thanks dude.

    unless the white looks really bad I'm leaning more towards white, just too deep of a blue for my liking.

    no problem , for sure a deeper blue than stock and white will likely be too much as well, I think I can make it match closer if it really bothers me, but it is hidden while driving behind the steering wheel so I don't see it much really. Good luck on your project

    dusman pics are way better than mine, for some reason my iPhone camera is not smart enough to detect color. I took a reverse shot so you can see the blue.
