    My latest creation from the MESO lab:
    THE TOTAL TAIL LIGHT KIT

    What is it exactly? Well, not only is it a full LED replacement.. but more importantly it is a complete plug and play wiring harness that redirects the placement and function of the Brake, Turn, and Reverse lights.

    This kit will take the turn signal(which is currently RED and located in the upper section of the tail light) then change it to AMBER and relocate it to the reverse section of the housing. It will also turn the Original brake light(located in the bottom half of the Red "horseshoe") and double the size, turning it into a full solid "C". Essentially, this brings back amber turn signals(which have been on every Tacoma up until the 3rd Gen) and gives you a much larger, more visible brake light. A WIN-WIN.

    It is available in 2 stages;
    STAGE 1-STAGE 2
    Both are brighter than the factory. And both plug into the wiring of the truck with all OEM waterproof connectors. FULL PnP.

    S1 uses a custom made switchback for the reverse hole. 100% DROP IN.
    S2 is brighter, but will require a small modification to the reverse socket of the light housing. In order to clear the new larger bulb.(video below)



    Stage 1: $110

    ***SOLD OUT***

    We’re no longer living in the days where people are saying they rear ended someone because they couldn’t see their brake lights. Now their excuse is that the brake lights blinded them.

    none yet, it's a commuter right now
    Will the stage 1 bulb, custom, be readily available if the original fails?
