    We're getting to the time of year where it's light for 99% of my driving, I don't want to be playing when there's snow on the ground and freezing my delicate fingernails anyway. I wouldn't be putting mine on until spring/summer anyway, so, you can bump me down the priority list :D

    While that may be true - I actually have these now after a slight run-in on the trails where I somehow tore out a plate light housing:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0823NQXHH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    So, these threw that away....Woopsies.
    PS If anyone is curious, I would recommend these lights if you're looking for new ones. Otherwise I would just put the LED lights in. I had the LED bulbs in there, but like I said, one got donated to the trails.

    This was my cousins driveway growing up (thanks to google street view)
    upload_2021-1-27_16-0-18.jpg

    So, to sneak home they'd have to gun it down the road leading up to the driveway, kill the lights, kill the engine, and then coast up the driveway and stop at the top. Every so often they wouldn't make it and they'd roll back down and try again.

    Thanks, Johnny!

    I really appreciate that. Let's go with the standard for now. I might have been overthinking it?

    I think that's most of us here. Instead of a support group, we have an enablers group. At least we feel understood.

    it was one of those things that you hardly notice until someone makes a mod to change it on tacomaworld and you happily pay for it instead.

    And yet another thing I've found here that I figure I 'need' :D

    Electronics and building cables like this are things I like to do myself, the hard part is often trying to find the right connectors (and mildly annoying to have to get some from one place and some from another since ballenger doesn't stock one of them and corsa doesn't stock a different one).

    So, thanks for the parts list @daveeasa, and for one more small project to add to my list :D

    I definitely still want one, I just need to live very frugally for the next few weeks so I am good not being at the top of the list right now.

    Hey y'all, dumb question here - does this have to be done on the driver side tail light? I haven't gotten back there yet, but my CB is mounted using the taillight bolts, wondering if I can route this on the passenger side or if the cut lengths/connectors are only on the driver side

    Thanks!

    As built, it is for the drivers side. The length from the relay to the license plate light intercept is specifics to that side. If you’d be comfortable de-pinning the wires from the license plate tee (it’s not hard once you see how), I could make you an extension. Or if you want to ship it back to me, I’ll swap the wires for longer ones.

    nah - that’s fine. It’s not that I can’t get to the driver side it’s just a few extra steps, like an additional 40 seconds. Not worth modifying anything just curious.

    thanks for the quick reply! It’s reasonably warm out right now - heading out in a few minutes. Working on my sleeping platform too. I’ll let you know how it goes.
