    I went with the MESO total tail stage 1 and can see a noticeable difference when backing out of the garage in the mornings. Not sure what LED they use but the whole kit is well worth it.

    Yeah and though I like MESO’s stuff it’s never available or not made for a 2nd Gen so

    As @crashnburn80 has already stated, don't waste your time with the current crop of LED bulbs for your backup / reverse lights. Yes, the LED's do look sexy, but the fact remains that crash's rather unique solution blows them all away. I have every single one of his lighting mods (plus a few of my own) in my 2014 Tacoma and he hasn't led me wrong yet.
