Just like with the OE switches, you'll need to file off the "keys" they have in each opening to restrict it to a specific switch from the factory. Very simple to do (flat file or Dremel tool and about 5 minutes time), but, alas, necessary...The Carling switches will fit snug, and look great...My FJ is full of 'em, and since they are color-coded and labeled, it makes organization easier (especially for a gadget junkie like me )

You will have additional wiring to do, as the dash light circuit in the switch is independent, and has it's own hot and ground connections...
