    UPDATE 10/3/17
    On 10/6, my tacoma will hit 2 years of being in my posession
    Since I've installed these lights, I've had no problems whatsoever and only pure satisfaction from my old self deciding to install them
    Pull the trigger, it is completely worth it

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have had my 2016 TRD Sport for the past 2 weeks, and I was not happy with the interior lights
    (basically the only thing wrong with it)

    So I ordered the LEDs and installed them, here is how it looks

    Comparison

    Front Old

    Front LED

    Middle Old

    Middle LED

    Back Old

    Back LED

    License Plate Old

    License Plate LED

    Vanity Mirror Old

    Vanity Mirror LED

    Both LED Vanities on

    I highly recommend to anyone that owns a 2016, make the switch to LEDs, it looks so much cleaner than the old bulbs

    The total for everything was about $38 from http://superbrightleds.com, here is the breakdown

    Map Lights:
    2x WLED-CWHP15-TAC (6.95 ea)

    Back Middle Light:
    1x 3110-W10-CB (4.95 ea)

    Vanity Mirror Lights:
    4x F30-WHP-12V (2.49 ea)

    License Plate Lights:
    2x WLED-CW5-CBT (4.95 ea)

    I selected "Cool White" for every LED

    Installation was extremely straightforward, all I needed was a small flat head screwdriver to pop off the covers and I was in

    This is my first time posting here, hope you all enjoyed :)

    I am placing my order also....Thanks for the details on this upgrade. Not many things on a Tacoma that you can upgrade for $38 that has this much effect. Is the cargo light LED factory?

    Not sure which lights I want to swap yet. Don't know if I like the idea of having it THAT bright. Especially the license plate. I would actually prefer to add a different color accent back there. Do they offer various colors?

    Is there a light under the hood? The bed light is a no brainier. Will change that one immediately.

    These have been ordered. Thanks OP! Nice write up. The before & after pics sold me. I was definitely wondering about the awful yellow vanity lights, too.

    By looking at those pics, the Vanity lights look like they might be too bright and shine in your eyes. Is that the case or is it just the camera making it look worse then it is?

    I have no problems or interference with the model/style of LED's that I have installed in mine.

    Did anyone get an LED light for the bed? If so, which one did you get? I definitely would like to get that one too.

    Search bar works. Chose the cool white color, and then the item number referenced in the first post will show.

    When you do the search ...click on the down arrow on search and select "LED car light bulbs" then they will show up. Then you only have to select cool white.
