    added factory roof rack, factory skid plate, removed cheesy running boards, built a pvc bike rack, added interior floor lighting, added decal plate under rear window, added sylvania silverstars, installed toytec ultimate 3" lift, added hella optilux yellow fog lights, added orange park lights to the turn signals, new 265/75/16 goodyear duratracs tires and raceline rockcrusher 16" wheels
    has anyone ever tried opening up the front bottom bumper turn signal housing? maybe by baking it similar to the black headlight mod? any ideas on how much to heat it or any tips for separating the clear lens from the housing?

    this would be on a 04 tacoma,

    thanks

    I just replaced the passenger corner light assembly yesterday. The entire unit was plastic & with shipping topped about $48.00. It seemed like the lense to frame was sealed with an epoxy of some sort, definitely glued.
    I was able to pop this off w/o any damage to the lense frame. While I replaced the entire assembly I suppose one could remove the lense, clean off the old glue & re-assemble.

    I had to replace it due to a slight fender-bender of the previous owner
