    Looks great. Question are those the 4000K or 6000K 921s?
    Also what license 194 bulb are you using?
    Thanks

    **EDIT found my answer 6000k

    Garbage. Pure garbage.
    I've got them too. But they really don't help me reverse any better than I did with stock bulbs. Its easier for me to just stick my head out the window. They may help the back up camera a bit, but I can't comment on that as mine is broken.

    well the first review on that bulb says this:

    so if it "may" need tweaking to fit the socket and is no brighter then stock, why risk deforming your bulb sockets by forcing this thing in them? if you ever decided to go back to stock bulbs at a later date it may fit loose after the LED bulb has deformed the socket larger.

    sounds like these V-LED 921's he mentioned are a better bulb to buy http://www.vleds.com/921-15-w-6k.html

    That reviewer tried them on a Lexus and just ass-umed that it would be the same experience with a Toyota, Which is not the case on our Tacomas. Why try it? Because I am ok with modifying my truck, Which I did not have to. Also they are not $45 a pair
    These are a perfect fit, don't need modified, don't need forcing. They slide right in just like the factory bulb does. Take my pictures how you will. I think they show they are brighter, I think they are brighter, and I am happy with my decision.

    ok, fair enough, lexus and Toyota should have the same light sockets since Toyota makes lexus but I guess it could be somehow different.

    the light output issue is still valid that all it changes is the light color, not the illumination it puts out. switching to the white light makes it "look" brighter to the eyes but it isn't putting out any more light

    In the pictures the LED bulbs cast shadows behind my friend, show the bushes clear as day beside my truck, and show the Tree limbs against the building. Try counting the bricks too, it's a lot easier in the LED pictures.
    I don't have any fancy scientific equipment to test with but I like them and recommend them.

    so, Philips LED 921= ~$20 and brighter than stock.
    (multiple users confirm Tacoma fit)

    V-LED 921= ~$40 and brighter than Philips.

    that's what I'm gathering from this and other threads.

    it takes very little additional light to make significant difference in the back up cams. OP I'm sold on your photos. I'm gonna give them a try.

    Check out the second story patio on the left (or whatever that is back there). You can totally see it with the LED and not with stock. That's a pretty far distance.

    Now they're showing in stock here, too, but they went up to $28.78 for the two-pack. They were like 22 bucks yesterday! But it's not xenon corp. it's from "car part kings". The xenon corp is a one bulb pack for $13.88.
