Has anyone found any OEM style auxiliary switches for the cabin that light up the same orange color as the factory switches?

I'm using a bunch of these http://www.ch4x4.com/product-category/push-series/
Pretty happy with them, once you figure out that the Toyota dash dimming circuit uses a varying ground (not the technical term) so you get them dimming properly with the rest of the dash. They still seem a bit brighter and have more light bleed than OEM, but way cheaper and a ton of fun options.
The smaller ones are good for non-stock locations too.

Sweet, thanks!

My Google-fu must have been weak, because that site never came up during my searches. A little more expensive, but if I can get the same orange color I'll be happy.

Thanks for the tip Mark. I just received my three switch’s. TPMS, Onboard Air, and Fog Lights. 👍🏻

Happy to help.
I just noticed they now have the ability to make custom buttons from uploaded images ... I wonder if "Get out of the left F****** LANE!!" is too much?

Probably not. I imagine it would just be one button that activates all of your forward facing lights at the same time Laughing

I already did almost that. Rolling Eyes
Used the OEM AUX light harness and relay for some driving lights, as long as the button is pushed everything but the wide flood HID's come on with the high beams. Smile (those made road signs painfully reflective thus actually reducing overall visibility- lesson learned).

That actually brings up something interesting...

I just replaced my factory headlight bulbs with some LEDs and I've found that there is no difference in light output between the DTL and when I turn the lights on myself.

because the DTL's use a circuit to run the bulbs at a lower voltage, the LED's don't have any circuitry to adapt to that so various things happen depending on how the bulbs were made. You got the best case it seems, sometimes it a nasty flicker, sometimes it's other less desirable results.

Well, in all honesty, right after I wrote that I walked outside and unplugged the DTL connector by the driver side light. No more DTLs =)
