    hey all....
    did this cup holder mod to my 1st gen over the weekend. (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/35282-writeup-pictures-led-cupholder-mod.html ) got it done with no problem at all (great write up Brian), except...the "orange" color LEDs look more like yellow and don't match my other dash lights at all. i'm pretty disappointed with the results. I used the exact LEDs recommended in the write up (Radio Shack calls them orange).

    Does anyone know of other LEDs that truely match the "orange" glow of the 1st gen?

    Same here, the "orange" LED at radio shack are really yellow when lit up.
    I'm switching mine over to all blue...
