    First post, Hi to all.:)
    Just bought a new 08 reg cab , auto. Got parts on order for the cruise and intermitent wiper mods.
    I was wondering if anyone has a mod for a brighter 3rd brake light. The 168 bulbs only come in 5 watt bulbs. Is there a 7 watt bulb that will fit? Any other ideas?

    I probably should have prefaced this question with the fact Im kind of snug (cheap). I was hoping for a 3 dollar solution, like a buck a bulb. I know they make 7 watt 194 bulbs for landscape lights, but i couldnt get the red lens over the bulbs when they were in there. The 194 bulbs are just a bit too long.
    This forum is great, Ive already bought my cruise and intermitent wiper, and am going to do the mods this weekend.

    In that case, i would look for the 194 led bulbs.
