    I used all www.superbrighleds.com products for brake/turn/reverse bulbs. they are definitely more noticeable.

    Pretty much stock right now
    Used those also, and did the dash too. Work great. Only problem was the done light. The low resistance LED messed up the auto off, and the on/off function. I went back to incandescent there.

    Where did you get your resistor from? The dome light is kind of dime.

    I used fog light bulbs with the ends cut off for backup bulbs. Bulb #886 50 Watt. Just nip the connector off and wedge the electrodes into the stock bulb socket, done. Way brighter than a regular LED replacement bulb.

    I bought my map and dome lights from Jumper, work good. the color is a little more "blue" than I wanted but I got used to it

    Tacoma is stock and staying that way, Pickup is TBA as of now.
    Subbed for ideas. I tried the Sylvania 1157's from the auto parts store and they were actually DIMMER than the stock bulbs! Really disappointing to say the least. Although I currently have LED marker lights, dome and map lights, and headlights and those all work great. Oh and license plate lights are LED, as well.
