Hi guys. I am new here and to everything off-road related. Just got a 2019 Tacoma DCSB TRD OR and planning to get into off-roading with it.

Getting that lift and front bumper with light bar done next month and looking for advise on the light switch panel. Looking at the Cali Raised LED Orem style switch panel. I like the clean look of it. Any positive feedback on it? Can I purchase any switch to go in it?

Newbie needs advice.

Thanks

Welcome! If you want to make life even easier with more lights you can invest in Switchpros or an S-pod system. I went with Switchpros SP-9100. Only had to go through the firewall once and now everything wires directly to a buss bar. Then you have one small Bluetooth capable panel to control everything.

I went SP-9100 as well, I don't think people appreciate the Bluetooth capability enough

Being able to turn lights on from inside your tent when you have to pee in the middle of the night was good enough for me lol

If anyone plans to do this mod hit me up. More than happy to help.


I may just take you up on that offer in the coming months. I have some MODs being done next week and that will give me an idea of what i plan to do afterwords.

I too went with the SP9100 after running a few switches to a Cali Raised switch panel. Needed more switches and loved the idea of controlling everything via the app. And with the SDHQ mount it looks super clean inside the truck.

2BigTaco I'd recommend covering the connectors up top. Switch Pros messaged me via Instagram warning me that without any protection and if water were to get in, warranty would be void. I went ahead and got big enough shrink tube and made it water tight.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be sure to do that. I saw a post where a guy made a custom bracket that bolts to the power trays so the sp-9100 sits vertical. Thought that was a good idea.
