    @KingRob what year is your car? If you have reflector low beams those have worked well in the VW model and I'll have to find out if the team ever tested in the Tacoma low beam specific.

    Thanks

    workin' on it.
    Thinking of installing these as a fog light replacement in a custom bumper:
    https://www.amazon.com/Auxbeam-Philips-Driving-Waterproof-Offroad/dp/B01FHP2E8S/
    (Auxbeam 3 Inch LED Light Bar 20w Philips LED Pods Fog Lights Square Cube Lights Spot Beam Driving Light Waterproof for Offroad Truck 4WD SUV ATV UTV (Pack of 2))

    They're inexpensive, but I really rarely even use fog lights. I have to replace the stock ones as I'm replacing the bumper with a custom bumper and think the ascetic of the stock would look terrible with the new custom bumper.

    Questions:
    1. Are these good/okay? Amazon reviews say great things as well as someone else in this post.
    2. Voltage (sounds like based on comments that it can run at least at 12v - 19v) Are the stock lights 12v? I would assume yes.
    3. Is there a dongle (hehe, I said dongle.) that can plug into the stock fog like plug and go to these? That would be great, otherwise, I can splice, but would rather not.
    4. Personal opinions anyone would like to share. It seems the alternatives to these (branded Rigid among others) would cost over $200.

    Looks like they're getting stock LED's for 2020.

    Just an fyi.... If you purchase the Hikari bulb online with Amazon, use promotion code "BULBFACT for 10% off! I found that on a website and it worked.

    @XenonDepot are the relay harnesses needed for your HIDs in the 3rd gen Tacoma low beam?

    @XenonDepot bump

    Edit: I no longer need this info. I found an old thread on TW talking about the relay harness. My low beams fuse blew and I figured the harness would be needed, which is true. However, after using the XenonDepot 6500K HID kit I've decided the color is not for me. They're now posted in the marketplace if anyone is interested.

    Thanks - they really look good. This is a really bright kit and tested brighter than many mentioned here so with that extra hyper yellow at anytime and the clean white to match our low beam HID it is a win-win have your cake and eat it too situation :)

    I can second your post. I've been running these as well and they're awesome.

    Anybody know what type of bulb the super weak cargo light is on a 2018 sport DCSB? I'd love to replace it with something that actually puts out some useful light.

    Anyone else have their deAutoLED bulbs or any other brand randomly flicker while they are on? My deAutoLEd interior bulbs and license plate bulbs have started to randomly flicker. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what?

    :( email Support@deAutoLED.com - they can look into batch and what you have. Everything is covered under their lifetime warranty but there should not be an issue.

    Also there should be an extra - did you try that?

    Thanks

    I did receive some extra bulbs but have not had time to try swapping them out yet. The bulbs were working fine for a couple of weeks after I installed them and just last week started flickering.

    Yes, I had a few of the interior bulbs have issues flickering and/or some diodes on the flickering bulbs die altogether. Same issue with the initial set of license plate bulbs they sent me. They immediately shipped me plenty extra interior bulbs as well as a different type of bulb for the license plate (absent resistors at the base).

    After a few bad bulbs in the interior, I haven’t had any issues for a couple weeks with the interior (map) lights.

    The initial four license plate bulbs all had problems. But the new set of license plate bulbs have had no issues.
