    AFE. COI and Throttle Body Spacer. Blue dash board components, Blue Halo Bulge and emblem. Iboards running boards. VLED’s switch backs and headlights. Back flip cover. Etc, etc.
    Thanks, I bought another dash center a month ago, painted it and swapped it out. Started about 9 this morning was done and had a beer in hand at kick off. Also ran my switch wires out to the engin bay, so I don't have to tear it apart again.

    It's not to big about 3.75 by 2.75 inches. You'll need a longer vga btw the ones that came with it was like 2 feet.

    I know it’s an old thread but since someone else bumped it, I’ll butt in.


    How has the trigger switch been working for you?

    Thank you! Any tips on cutting out the hole for it to fit, other than being real, real careful?

    No tips. Check everything twice. You may need to trim that panel too. I was using different parts to make my switch panel and i had more work.Screenshot_20190211-162923_Chrome.jpg

    NICE! This is what I need. From the looks of it, it's flush right? Where did you purchase the actual switch?

    UPDATE- 3/4/19- I CAN CONFIRM THAT DIAGRAM 1 WORKS FOR 2019 TUNDRAS. I wired the red trigger wire into the under-hood fuse box using a Add-A-Circuit with 3 amp fuse in the HI Headlight fuse spot.

    I just ordered the switch plate housing off Amazon for $20. It's available other places for $12+ shipping. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GV8APBS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Pit_goral- a quick question- on the AOB switch install, did you have to use a diode to get the switch to illuminate with dash lights? I'm trying to figure out if I need a diode and if the 2019 Tundra headlights are positive or negative switched. [​IMG]

    One more question, would you have had enough room vertically to get the AOB switches wired up and installed in the middle and passenger side holes? I removed the console cover and it looks pretty tight right above the AC duct going to the back seat. Hell, I guess it doesn't matter, I am going to give this a whirl either way.

    I had this switch mounded in passenger side before I move it to my side with no problems.

    Awesome, thank you. That Toyota OEM switch plate should be exactly what I have been looking for, assuming I can keep the dremel steady enough. Now I just have to figure out the wiring diagram on the AOB switches. So much conflicting information on the interwebs about it.

    I've goten the pieces and cut the initial hole for the switch plate. The more I do on this, the more I realize just how great yours looks. The rounded corners are a PITA.

    Man, you're not kidding. I decided that the spare opening where you have the Toyota Security insert was too hard for me to see. I had to look at your pic more than once to notice the ones that were actually hidden.

    Here's the plan and the first cut:

    The Toyota part with the three switch openings is right at 2"x4". Worst case if I screw up this attempt, AOB sells a 4 gang switch panel that is 4.4" x 2" and screws down rather than snaps in, so as long as I don't screw up the 2" part of the hole, I can use it and have an excuse to wire something else up to the extra switch. https://www.tundras.com/threads/where-to-add-a-switch.10751/page-2#post-1022164

    Or you can use a glue to mount this panel
