    Just wanted to throw this out there for the tundras.com people. I hate that my mirror switch isn't lit. In the past I installed and LED bolt light just above the switch to light the area. It was too long and too bright and ended up failing after a couple months. I just installed this new bolt light and I like it alot. Its shorter than any bolt light I have seen and only like 6 lumens (I got amber). White would be too bright, blue would have probably looked better but I'm happy with this. Wired to the light blue wire that illuminates with other dash lights at night and it provided just enough glow to see the switch and is short enough it doesn't impede the view of the switch. Here is the item. Highly recommend it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07N6HCLWT?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_image&th=1

    Old, too bright, stuck out too far. Bulb started to flicker and burnt out

    New, not overly bright, doesn't stick out so far I cant see the controls. Better quality.

    Yeah 2 wires. Black I grounded and the red i tied into a light blue wire on the back of the blind spot switch , its the wire that makes it illuminate when the headlights turn on. I think every switch that illuminates will have this same blue wire.

    Thx Sean, that’s a nice subtle/functional upgrade.
