    Am I corrrect in that the reverse lights for a 2009 Tacoma are 921's?

    Is there a way to put a brighter bulb in there that won't melt the wiring? LED's? Anyone have a solution?

    Thanks

    Or you could upgrade to the 921 silver stars. That's what I'm using much better than the regular 921's IMO

    Ok, I checked ebay and they have 921 LEDs from 8.00 to 40.00, so what is the difference? Does anyone know of any B&M stores that may have something, or does anyone have experience with these?

    Silverstars are an option, but in my experience, they are not bright enough for me, unless they are the German ones, and I can't find any.

    Help

    I went with the Silverstars. The light is whiter, but not that much more light. At 10.00 I figure, what the heck. I didn't go with the 886 bulbs as I didn't want to risk the heat of the halogens. Great idea though.

    Thanks for all the help gang

    Okay so idk how much the LED's were I ordered a bunch at once for my map, dome, reverse, and license plate lights..dropped like $70 but I love them all

    The auxiliary LED reverse lights I mounted were $20 at..*Sigh* wal-mart lol but they work great and were easy to wire. I just went out and took some pics for you since I didn't have any already, but its too light out so i closed my garage door for some dark ones. They're definitely brighter in person and look great at night..I love my setup
