    hey i live in Alabama and was wondering if there was anyone out there that did the led swap outs for the dash in a second gen tacoma. I realize prerunnerseth and a couple others from cali do it but my truck is my daily driver so I cant afford to have it down for a week or so waiting on the mail. just wondering if someone was around alabama and could do it some day for me. thanks in advance.

    Yes I believe I could do it lol. I've got some experience with leds and soldering. Along the lines on gaming systems and stuff anyways. A meet would be nice. If anyone wants to come this way during the weekend we could go on a good ride.

    Ok, folks-I've been researching this for quite some time, and mine will be the guinea pig-Ive also had some experience soldering and working with computer boards....
    I have ordered the leds from oznium, and they should be here friday or monday the 3rd of dec.
    I'm in pelham, just south of birmingham-i will post with pictures as soon as i complete it-maybe we all need to meet in a central location and just knock them all out in a day!

    How would your truck be down for a week??? I gave my cluster to seth and had it quickly done...I have a droid phone with GPS and showed my speed and just fill up your truck with gas knowing its full 60 bucks well worth it:)...other then that youll be fine without a cluster....everything else still works
