    the best solution without doing resistors is to have HID headlights, I have morimoto 35Watt HIDs and all blinkers work normally including the hazard lights, and others have posted they had the same results once they switched to HIDs I believe

    but I was using XP80 LEDs from Diode Dynamics. They are some of the highest output signal, brake, and reverse LEDs that plug into the stock bulb locations http://www.diodedynamics.com/store/listed-by-vehicle/toyota/tacoma.html this is a link to the page where you can click whatever bulb location you are looking to replace on the truck and it will bring up a list of available replacements in varying outputs

    Installed headlights and fogs yesterday. Picked some up from superbrightleds.com, and am very pleased with the result. The output of the 6300K lights matches the DRLs almost perfectly. Can't really tell a difference. Although, I'm not sure if you guys ran into the same issue as me, but the huge cooling fan on the back of the LEDs made it so that I hadto remove the headlight housing to get them in. This made theinstall a bear because you have to remove the grill and the front bumper to get the housing out.
    The good news is these LEDs come with a lifetime warranty, so lets hope I never have to replace them.

    Holy crap. $90 for a pair of XP80 taillight bulbs?!?@? I'd need a happy ending for that price. Do they look THAT much better than stock?

    I think so, when you combine instant on off with MUCH brighter colors and more lumens of light. It looks pretty good, but the best part is that unattentive drivers that otherwise might miss me in traffic now have more chance of noticing my presence on the road since theyre getting blasted with these and hopefully they will avoid hitting me in turn.:woot:

    My reverse LED bulbs are from O'Reilly, they're Philips. $20 I believe for two.

    That is bright! Do you get oncoming vehicle flashing lights - blinding those vehicles?

    Siznarf, I haven't updated the interior yet. I want led interior but some look really bright. Which I think would look bad.

    Turnleft , yes all the time. It's annoying, I started to do three quick high beams flashes do they know what my high beams look like.

    Dsoulds had them for a couple weeks. Best investment ever. Really nice at night.

    Hmmmmm....now I'm a little worried about getting a ticket if I go with this HID kit....especially if people flash their lights at you often.

    The light bulbs that you posted for the dome does that also work on the vanity mirror in the sun visor?
