  • Switch blanks for 2017/18 150?

    Toyota have decided it's too easy to stick with what works and now have mostly square switch plates on the dash From memory I now only have two rectangular ones left and about 4 or 6 square ones.
    Has anyone found a supplier of various switches to suit this new shape?
    I'd like USB (as there's now no power on the actual dash anymore) and possibly various rocker switches...
    I'll update the thread with a pic later...
    Cheers, Leon

    I spoke with Aironboard who sell a heap of switches and have the factory matched toyota blue. They sell them on ebay and have their own website. Owner told me they are developing the new switches for the prado as the new 200 series etc will probably use what the Prado now use. Said it will take a little while though so i wouldnt hold my breath. I bought a couple of switches to put in the two spots that are the same as the old switch style and wait for the square ones to be developed.

      Thanks for the info... I looked at their website and only saw the old style. Good to know they're onto it.

        Any update on switches or switch blanks for the 2018 Prado (using the squarish switches)?

          Stedi are also looking at sourcing the 20mm square switches. I have bought one original Parking Sonar switch from Toyota which was $130 and two weeks to come from Japan.
          Then I painted it in flat Acrylic paint and laser engraved for my Spot lights, happy with the result - unhappy with the cost for the switch.

            Hey guys- Stedi now have the square and the short vertical. Does anyone know how they compare to OEM blue color? I’ve also looked at the aironboard switches that say they match the OE color.

              I just had the Stedi spotlight switch installed and it looks factory, the blue is a very close match to my eyes, couldn't actually see any difference. The green on light is also the same as OEM. The actual style of graphics blends in excellently as well , had to look twice to find the switch when I picked the car up as I expected it to stand out more.
