    Word of warning, or information, depending on your outlook. I had a leaking OEM smoked HL that I just decided to replace instead of trying to seal. Bought the HL, installed it, then looked a bit closer. Turns out that the turn signal lens color has now changed from that piss yellow color to a clear smoked color.

    IMO, it's definitely a better color, but now I had a mis-matched set. Ended up buying _another_ HL to replace the yellow TS's HL. So, if you want to do away with the yella color, a measely $500 will do that for you. If you are replacing a HL, be forewarned.

    I tried taking a couple of pics, but I couldn't get the pic to show the color difference. Overcast I think.

    Not sure if the non-smoked HLs changed or not. The parts guy, on the second HL purchase, said he'd heard this once before on the Tacoma's. Told him now he's up to 2.
