    They're both aftermarket.
    Might be dealer-installed, but not factory.... both the green switch and red "button".

    Oh I know... I was trying to point out that maybe he should have gotten this information when he got the truck... instead of waiting to ask strangers on the internet.

    Honestly who looks at every button and ask what it does? I was to excited to buy my truck I probably wouldnt have noticed a little red button either.

    No shit storm.. but how's he going to know or learn if it's not pointed out?
    I was excited too. But I researched before I purchased, and knew more than the salesman when I got mine. I made sure before I spent thousands of dollars I know what I was getting.

    Holy shit props to you. I read the owners manual when I couldn't figure out how to get my spare out when I was changing the rear diff fluid, but hasn't been opened since. Im a lazy fuck though
