    Hi all, I am new to this forum. I've had my 08 Tacoma Double cab for about a year now and just recently decided to join this forum.

    I decided to upgrade my tail lights to the OEM led lights. I bought some off ebay that came off a 2011. But, in checking out the LED tail lights, I noticed that the plug for brake light only, has a adapter plugged into the socket where the bulb would go, and the adapter is connected to what appears to be a LED light board. Don't know if I am describing this correctly and not familiar with these at all. Is this correct for the new LED's, that the actually brake light section does not require a single bulb?

    Thanks.

    Your fine. Its all plug n play. I have an 06' and put on 2010 OEM LED tails and they work perfect.

    Sorry to re-open an older thread, but yesterday I had a little boo boo on my Taco, and the drivers side tail light got cracked..DAMMIT! (not my fault btw.) ;-) I was checking the forum to see if anyone had a replacement drivers side tail light for sale for an 08, and I stumbled across this thread, and realized they upgraded the tail lights from incandescent bulbs to LED, so I figured WHAT THE HECK! Time for an upgrade!

    That being said, is it my understanding (based upon the comments in the thread above) that the 09+ tail lights are LED, and would be Plug and Play with the 08 Harness? I found a set on Ebay for $155.00, so before I jump on them I thought I better check with the experts!

    Let me know.

    Thanks!
