    So the I was driving home on the freeway the other day and I see a taco a lane over and two cars up. Of course out of couriosity I caught up to see what he had done, I noticed he had blacked out twilights(as do I), but I noticed when he changed lanes his signal light was white as really bright. Any1 know how this is done? I'd love to have it on my truck I think it will make my tailights more noticed. Thanks!

    Thanks for the help.... U know what those chrome bulbs look Like? And if I just put a clear light won't it still be amber? I thought it's the lense that was colored? Or am I a complete jackass ? LOL

    Turn signals on Toyotas (and most other vehicles) have a clear (or close) lens and an amber bulb.

    what year is your truck?

    Edit: 2007

    Pull apart your tail light assembly, and switch the amber bulb, with a clear one.

    Note: This is illegal, but this is what you are describing in the opening post.
