    So I bought a 2006 tacoma couple weeks ago. i noticed the front parking lights not working. When I went to change them I found these bulbs in there. They were not hooked up with no wiring harness for them. I could only think the guy took the harness out. Just want to know if anyone knows what kind of lights these are. Thanks for any help

    Hole-sawed the housing?

    You can get a pair of Depo housings on Amazon for around $175 shipped.
    DON'T pay $120 per housing.

    The new housings will come with sockets, but you'll need to find where the original harness was tucked and maybe have to buy a new plug for the socket.

    BTW: The front lights between the headlight and grille are only turn signals.
    The parking lights are on the corners.
