    Any good kits that won't flicker? Direct links appreciated. Looking for something to replace all including the license plate.

    This is what I did. (#25)

    Got the bulbs from:
    https://www.runnin4tacos.com/collec...ng-upgrade?variant=30273082458160#MainContent
    They make 'kits' and/or also sell the individual bulbs as needed.
    There are other options, as others have done ... The MESO kits. I just chose to replace the bulbs rather than the whole fixtures.
    i just wanted the map & dome lights to be a lot brighter .. they are and very happy with them.

    I bought some from TacoGarage but they were really cheap and I wasn't happy with them so I bought the Diode Dynamics ones. Much happier with them.

    All the lights I've bought from them (DD) I've got the bright white and the highest lumen they offer if multiple lumens were available.

    Can someone educate me on why you'd do interior LED lighting? Is it for looks? More light?

    I've never needed more light in my truck. I always assumed it was a "looks" thing.

    For me it was for better light. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal but now after having the white light vs. the stock yellow/orange-ish light, I will certainly do this minor change on all my future vehicles. It makes seeing inside the cabin at night, much easier. Though it's rarely used, when you do need it it's nice.

    That sucks... the dome light is the one I would need the most.

    It's because you can't see anything in the back seat with the stock. They are not bright. I did it in my old Tacoma (eBay kit), but they flickered when dimming.
