    I am looking at new lights for my 96 and would like to hear opinions and/or see pics preferably on a BLACK truck, but if there are none of black then show me anyway. I prefer the red and clear look, I not looking to do smoked because the front wont be. I'm also probably staying with sealed beam headlights.

    First I am definitely going with clear corners and turn signals up front.

    Then Im going to get tail lights. I found this well priced combo, but I don't know if it is too much clear on the back. Does anyone have pictures of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/USA-95-97-TOYOTA-TACOMA-4WD-RED-CLEAR-TAIL-CORNER-BUMPER-LIGHTS-SET-/251070796351?_trksid=p3284.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSI%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BUA%252BFICS%26otn%3D21%26pmod%3D300714001175%26ps%3D54

    After looking around for a while, I'm still not sure about those, I think It is too much clear but I don't know. I like the picture of the lights themselves, but didn't really like them on a burgundy truck that I saw.
    Anyway, there are also these which I think I like, I am not sure about having leds in the back only, but it does look nice in the pics: http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOYOTA-TACOMA-PICKUP-TRUCK-RED-CLEAR-LED-TAIL-LIGHTS-/160817793412?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A1996|Model%3ATacoma|Make%3AToyota&hash=item25717cc984&vxp=mtr

    I am leaning more towards those leds, but would like to see the other ones. Also, does anyone know where to buy this if I go led: http://www.spyderauto.com/product.p...t=Toyota-Tacoma-95-04-LED-3rd-Brake-Light-Red

    Are there issues with any of these? I would like to see pics, and hear (read) opinions. I'm trying to make the taco look sharp.
    *one more thing. The dome light inside is super dim, I think a mag-lite that's low on batteries would be brighter. Is there and led or something that you can actually see with in the dark while its on?

    Here are The pictures of the truck as of now so you can get an idea.
