    k+n cold air intake/mbrp cat back/useless performance chip/westin grille guard/side steps/vent visors/custom grille/conformed bug flector/harley graphics/tinted windows/headlight low beam and fog light upgrade
    So...I bought the interior light upgrade kit for my 2019 Taco and I found that removing the existing map lights to be quite the bitch...after buying 35 bucks worth of bad ideas my buddy Francisco came up with this simple but ingenious idea...all you need is a pilot g-2 pen or something real similar. Basically destroy the pen and remove the plastic from the interior of the pen grip...jam the grip over the existing bulb as far as you can get it and PULL!!! And sonofabitch it works!!! Hope everyone who is thinking of an interior lighting upgrade sees this cuz it will save you an awful lot of aggravation!!!
