    When installing led lights to all your bulb sockets ie: blinkers! You must install one resistor for each light installed, so for example, four blinkers are led, four resistors are required for system to work. Is this correct???

    just get the relay for LEDs. Kind of a waste to get LEDs then add resistors.

    Take the stock flasher relay and remove the shunt resistor and solder in 2 .22ohm resisters (1watt) and your good. I have a 2009 pre runner that's what I did and it worked thanks to other members of TW and forum threads I got it working.

    There is no solid state flasher available for 2nd Gen with DRL.
    You either need to use resistors or attempt to mod the resistance of the shunt in the flasher.
