    I have a 2011 tacoma...and even back in 2011 the interior was pretty dated. I bought my wife a new highlander a few years back and it had some nice, but a little dim, dash and door accent lighting. It got me thinking how I could modernize my truck....because screw getting a 3rd gen.

    I found a fiberoptic led kit on Amazon, grabbed a beer, and went at it.

    I have green pin stripes on my seat covers and other green accents...so I think ill keep it green for now.
