Got mine in over the weekend. Sorry for the poor quality picture - just a quick shot with my parking lights on. Easy to do and a very fun DIY

technically its the 5 lights to indicate that the vehicle is wider than i think 80 in. (not sure) hence why the duallys have them up top and the 5 lights in the rear
Unfortunately on the '12+ tacos, the grill design doesnt allow for three lights (with the middle in the center of the grill). It's either 2 or 4.

About as much "daylight" as I'll get this time of year in Renton. 11:30 AM, but overcast and light raing.....








If I wasn't lazy and grabbed my Nikon D3, they would probably look better than the iPhone 5S pictures above. In the last picture, it looks like the lights are almost white. But to the naked eye, they are still amber and quite visible and distinct. I'm across the street in this photo (26-28 feet wide).

Here is a link to the last image at full size: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/...r.jpg~original

I looked all over the place (ebay, amazon, etc) for the cleanest (and cheapest) possible solution and found it at oznium.com. I purchased LEDs from them before to work on my porsche so I went back there.



After perusing around, I figure I give these a try



Ordered 4 and got to work last night.

I took a couple of pics during install but wasn't very detailed.





Lots of wires but easily concealed once you put back the outer skin



Testing



Mounted up





Total cost: $20 and 2-3 hours... done Comments/criticism welcomed

Whats the exact name of the ones you bought from oznium??
