    I bought one of the LED Dome/Map light kits from one of the guys on here in "pure white" or "cool white" but it had too much of a blueish purple hue to it. Can someone point me in the right direction of more of a warm white color for a 2008 DCSB TRD Sport? I'd like the dome/map and license plate LEDs.

    Thanks! I searched threads with no luck.

    Superbrightleds.com has a pretty good selection. And you can filter many options including the Kelvin color such as cool white, natural white, and warm white. Cool puts out the bluish look. Natural is the white, and warm is a yellow/incandescent look. Their site is down for maintenance atm. Or just browse Amazon or eBay and look for natural white or warm white of whatever bulb type you need. Trs sells some too, but their leds are seemingly unreliable. But I believe they offer warranties on theirs. I got a natural white square panel from superbrightleds and it's bright as hell, but does not work correctly when opening the door. Only when key is on. I'm sure it has something to do with using resistors but never got around to messing with it.

    Seems like a good product. Any tips on keeping moisture out of license plate bulb housing?

    I ended up buying Jumpers white and they were exactly the color i was hoping for.

    Good to know. How long have you had them in that license plate area?

    I've only had the LED's in there for a month or so. No issues so far.
