BEST SWITCH SYSTEMS FOR LIGHTS AND OTHER AUXILIARIES
When it comes to wiring lights and other accessories in a Toyota Tacoma, there are a ton of different options for avoiding that hideous circular red button that comes with the wiring harness for your lights. Not only that, but the wire management when you get to two light bars and ditch lights is out of control. Thankfully we have a few different options to help you keep a clean oem like look on the inside, and an organized option for under the hood.
We all know how it feels when building out Toyota Tacoma's to have to deal with that insane pocket of wires over the fuse boxes. These are all products designed specifically to fix that issue for you. Now we do want to mention that we always recommend having these professionally installed, however they are also quite intuitive if you have some wiring know how. Keep in mind some of these options will be specific to the Toyota Tacoma, while others are available for other vehicles as well, though we do specify on the product listing what is compatible with which years and models, for the most part these should work with most Toyota Tacoma's.
OEM STYLE LIGHT SWITCHES
The first option keeps the oem look and is limited to the blank spots that are available in your car. These aftermarket switches fit in the factory opening for a clean look. The symbols on these switches are laser etched and are available in the following options: grille light, sasquatch lights, LED light bar, roof lights, rear lights, side lights, and ditch lights. These are a great option for the oem look on the interior, but don’t really help with organization under the hood.

AUXBEAM SWITCH PANEL KIT
This next product is a budget friendly option for a switch panel in the cab and a control box under the hood that neatly puts all your wires to a control box as opposed to all around the engine bay and squeezing them into the cab of your Tacoma. This gives you the ability to power up to 8 different switches. The way it works is you connect the positive and negative poles of the vehicle power supply and the switch control box. Then you simply connect the switch panel and the control box. From there you just simply connect all of your wires to the power box and you are ready to go!
This switch panel comes with 50 different stickers for you to customize the different buttons on your panel to whatever you want! This is an awesome option and has a few different mounting options inside the cab for whatever works the best for you. This comes with the option of either a 6 switch panel or an 8 depending on what you think you will need.
