    Hey guys noobie here. I wanted to do an led bulb swap on my 03 Taco on the cluster and wanted to know what kind of bulbs to get. Polarized non polarized? Whats the difference? And I know there different angles of bulbs, which angle is going to look the best when I put them in? And what are hotspots? Thanks and sorry if I asked too many questions

    You're going to want a bulb with a wide angle to prevent hot spots. Hot spots are when the light is brighter in on area and lighter in the others. Most LEDs are polarized so you almost have no choice but will have to be mindful when installing to put them in right or turn them around if they don't light up. Superbrightleds should have what you are looking for.
