I put Wide angles in my map. I also went with 4410x9 festoon in cool white in my dome. Matched better to the WLED-CW5's in the map. Went with 3 red WLED-R5's for the third brake light.

LEDs for Tacoma

I just installed Oznium's (http://www.oznium.com/thin-led-domelight) Ultra Thin Dome Light in 1.5x5", the perfect size for my dome light. I chose the "Cool White" from their long list of whites/colors and it's perfect...the inside of my Tacoma XtraCab is like daylight :-). Came with all the adapters, of course, and I discovered with one try, it likes its + and - in order!

Now, I intend to pursue LEDs for Backup, Center Brake and Maplights...for starters. This is the greatest thing since Swiss Cheese

Also, took the advice of the Thread on Blacked-Out Accessory Panels on the overhead, and am sending my removed board into SiliconMethod.com for resistor installation and a dimmer control.

What a resource...Tacoma World ROCKS Thanks, TW!

Where did you find the Map Lights? I used Oznium for the Dome, and it's awesome!
Thanks.
