    I just got a new 2008 Tacoma and the instrument panel color is orange, i would very much prefer blue as the background colors for my speedometer etc, can someone help me out on how i can change the bulbs or any advice on what to do?

Wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be.:rolleyes:Just have to take your time and stay calm, I went with the blue leds got them from digi-key Make sure you tell them you want the surface mount style and the legs are pointed downwards opposite of led side.
