I noticed the mirror control and dash brightness knobs and one button on the left side of the steering wheel are the only controls on the dash not backlit at night.

Is this normal?

Yes, it is pretty dark over there. There is a thread started by Sunshine from a couple years ago that discusses adding LEDs to the dash. I did that mod, adding 4 LEDs from Radio Shack to the center section of the dash so I could see the transfer case shifter at night. Now I am looking into how to add some light to the left side where those controls and my off-road and fog light switches are added.http://http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/interior-exterior-visual-tech/48334-dash-lights-mod.html
That thread has 130 posts and contains a lot of wrong paths, but it discusses adding interior LED lights ad nauseum. I am thinking about drilling and mounting a few Oznium LEDs. My worry is that the LEDs will glare and would need a cover and I haven't figured out that part yet. :confused: I bought the dome light modules from Oznium and they are pretty bright. I am hoping to have time next weekend to work on this so if you find a solution be sure to post!
