    When I roll down the windows at higher speeds I get a really pronounced buffeting noise from the wind, but if I roll down the rear window just a few inches the buffeting stops and having the windows down is much quieter.

    Lol bro that's just 1 window down. Highway speeds create a literal.vortex with the aerodynamics and you need an adjacent window open all the time. Try it out

    my 4runners rear window switch location is much better. Seems like they could have put it in that rectangle spot behind the console shifter.

Lamin X yellow fog lights. Anytime fog light mod. Fortin remote start. Front hitch receiver. DIY pop/lock tailgate lock. Center console 120v power inverter.
    In my 2nd gen I extended all the wires in a diy harness I made and put the switch in the center console like @careyrob did.

    And the day this post was started I was thinking to myself... I wonder if I can put this in the door armrest.

    If the switch wasn’t so deep it would fit perfectly in the center console under the lid. When arm is placed on center armrest, fingers would be dangling above it.
