    Currently I'm running a set of LED signals from Trail-Gear. I've been told by a few people that they are way too small and hard to see when activated. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I should replace them with?

    Isn't there a mod to run the lights just to the outside of the headlights act as the turn signals? If not could you easily?

    On my 03 Tacoma, I used turn signals from a motorcycle when I added a plate bumper. If you wire the corner markers directly to the turn signals they will flash quickly. The motorcycle turn signals worked great as they were slightly flexible and I could mount them anywhere.

    Doesn't the corner light mod use standard bulbs? I was hoping to use LEDs.
