    The switches only work on the 2.5 Gens. Those of us with 05-11 can’t use them.

    You can modify it to work you just have to buy the extra bevel I think. I posted the video how to a couple days back in this thread.

    Add me to the autoswitch camp. This is the Tundra 07-21 panel. Took about 3 minutes. Maybe I'll get around to the passenger side some day but honestly, I just needed it to be on the driver's side.

    Some Chinese Amazon seller is making bank on these auto switches. Is it that much better?

    A lot of this stuff transfers from other Toyota models. Try looking at 2-door sedan armrest controls.

    When I had a GX470 a bunch of people bought these aftermarket switches to replace failed OEM and they ended up with a terrible parasitic draw somehow from the switch panels. Might have been GX specific. Easy to check for if the lights don’t shut off with the rest of the dash lights when the vehicle is locked.
