    I just installed some IPCW Bermuda Black LED tails today, along with the matching 3rd brake light. I also got some Lumen white LED bulbs to replace the stock back up lights. Thanks, CARiD! :cool:

    MOTHER OF GOD these things are BRIGHT! :eek:

    I will post some pics later.

    BTW, they are awesome, but now the stock turns in the front look like ass compared to the new tails. Looks like I gotta get some LED bulbs for the front now, too. :D

    These: http://www.carid.com/2006-toyota-tacoma-led-lights/lumen-led-lights-10267304.html

    They were a bit tough to get in the socket, but that's okay, because I know they're in there really tight and won't come loose. They emit a bright, cool white light, and are much brighter than the stock bulbs.

    The $8.99 ones. They are plenty bright. I don't need to spend $21.95 for the other ones, at least not right now.

    Reverse Lights come on if the keys are turned 1 click past acc.... Leave parking brake on, foot on brake pedal, shift to reverse with truck not running, get out.

    Take pic.

    Much better because u won't get added light of the brake lights being on.... Just pure reverse light power iirc.

    There are 2 $8.99 ones, did you get 40 lumen or 50 lumen? How much room do you have left after install?

    According to the website, mine are 50 lumen. They have 9 LED units on each of them. The LED "bulbs" don't take up much room inside the tails. I will post some more pics tonight.
