Wink Different signal lights

So the I was driving home on the freeway the other day and I see a taco a lane over and two cars up. Of course out of couriosity I caught up to see what he had done, I noticed he had blacked out twilights(as do I), but I noticed when he changed lanes his signal light was white as really bright. Any1 know how this is done? I'd love to have it on my truck I think it will make my tailights more noticed. Thanks!

First Off. A white turn signal on the rear is illegal.

Just a heads up.

On the subject. -->

He probably has a pair of these

and instead of switching to an amber bulb, he kept his stock white bulb.

Turn signals on Toyotas (and most other vehicles) have a clear (or close) lens and an amber bulb.

Pre-2005 Tacoma's all have amber lens, white bulb, in the rear.

what year is your truck?

Edit: 2007

Pull apart your tail light assembly, and switch the amber bulb, with a clear one.

Note: This is illegal, but this is what you are describing in the opening post.
