    Has anyone else tried to replace your map or dome light bulbs in your Toyota? I’m wondering if anyone else has run into issues trying to make them fit.

    I have a 2018 Tacoma, but had the same issue with my wife’s 2010 FJ Cruiser.
    The aftermarket dome light bulb is shaped a little different, and acts like it’s too long.
    On the map light bulbs, the plastic is too thick to fit into the socket.

    I ended up using a Dremel and modifying the bulbs to make them fit, but it sucks I even need to. Curious if anyone else has run into this issue.

    Hey Josh,

    As luck would have it, I have given up on the stock interior lights...old eyes and dim bulbs are a bad combination. My mission tonight is to find some new bulbs

    There have been a couple postings on the "What have you done to your 3rd Gen today?" thread, but of course i can't find them, now that I need them

    Meso Customs is the Guru, and his LED replacements turn night into day...alas, he also sells out within minutes...

    I do recall that Amazon sells a couple 'kits', looking for those as we speak...as well, Superbrightleds has (apparently) direct replacements

    https://www.superbrightleds.com/veh...hicle-led-lights?make=77&model=1618&year=2018

    I haven't heard of anyone having issues with either Superbright or Amazon....

    Not sure if this helps or not...good luck

    Someone else suggested a seller on eBay who he says he had great luck with. I saved that just in case. Either way, mine are installed now, but that doesn’t mean I might not need them in the future.

    Here’s that kit: https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/391823627282

    Here’s the kit I bought: https://hidkitpros.com/shop/2015-2018-toyota-tacoma-led-lighting-package/
