    No mud flaps, plasti dipped emblems, and rear bumper, Weather tech digital fit, Bed mat from tractor supply. Pioneer 4400BH head unit. B.A.M.F bed rail tie downs. AVS vent visors.
    first you will need a flat head screw driver to pop it out. and a philips head as well for after you take it out their are some screws you will have to take out first.

    All you will need to change these bulbs is a flat screwdriver. Pry out from the bottom of the control panel. It will pop out easily. Unplug the wire connectors if you want to take the entire control panel out. Then you will see the two bulbs. Use your flat screwdriver to turn the bulb about 1/4 turn counter clockwise. You will have to get the bulbs from the dealership. They are about $10 each. I just did this last week.

    Sweet....I have a bulb burned behind my heater control...drop by my dealership last night....
    19.10$ each (21.58 with taxes)....
    Both bulbs are burned in my co-worker's Tacoma...

    I am trying to find a cheaper source cause 21.58 is just plain stupid.
