Interior Mods

Modified gauge cluster

I have made many mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the inte­ri­or of the truck, from white faced gauges to a cus­tom switch pan­el for the winch and oth­er acces­sories.

White Faced Gauges

My truck came with the instru­ment clus­ter that did not have a tachome­ter, so I ordered one off of ebay and replaced the gauge faces with APC white faces. I also changed over all of the instru­ment lights to red LEDs.

My truck also did not come with a front map light. I got one out of a wrecked four-run­ner that had the same inte­ri­or col­or. I had to run wires to the loca­tion by tap­ping off of the rear dome light wires. I also stuffed bright amber LEDs in there too.

I also built a cir­cuit that will keep the map lights on for about 1 minute after the doors are closed, that is can­cled with the igni­tion switch.

Custom Switch Panel

I made a cus­tom switch pan­el out of allu­minum angle I got from Lowes. The big switch­es on top are for aux lights and winch con­trol, the small­er switch­es are for the all the emer­gency strobe lights.

Just Installed a Pio­neer P4100DVD into my truck. It replaces a flip out stereo that I had bought off of a friend, this stereo looks alot bet­ter. I have a back-up cam­era hooked to it, and I am plan­ning on adding more camereas to spy on the under­side of the truck while on the trails.

    Hi Shawn, I just got a 1998 Taco­ma as well that didn’t come with inte­ri­or map lights. I’m look­ing to do the same mod­i­fi­ca­tion you’ve done with a 4runner map light con­sole run­ning off of the inte­ri­or dome light wiring. Would you be able to maybe post a short guide or send over some instruc­tions on that? I’m fine with sol­der­ing but not as good at fig­ur­ing out wiring like you’ve done. Feel free to email as well. Thanks!
