    wat?
    "I will offer a $40.00 discount to anyone who sends me their stock tailights upon purchase of these LED taillights"

    I bet he can just refund you the $40 after he receives them. i've done some things through paypal like that.

    and those are some good looking lights as well!

    The good news is I have a set already in my possesion when I'm working on these taillights, when I finish them, I send the full complete housing to you, then you swap your stock lenses and send me back your old housings to get the refund.

    As for turnaround time, it will take 2 to 4 weeks to get a set, if i find more time, it will be shorter.

    That's pretty sweet, I could even meet you in person if you want when it's your turn to make the set.

    You are right on, I do refund the customer $40 via PayPal once I receive your stock taillights.

    I was thinking about it. It's a little bit work involved.

    To all those +09 Tacoma, I found a way to make the those LED brake/parking lights functioning turn signals and that way you can have 2 reverse light bulbs in each light.

    I don't know yet, it's hard to give away an idea that I spent a good amount of R&d on. I might think about doing this conversion for people. It would only cost about $50 or so. That way you would know it was done right.

    Does condensation form on the inside of the lens? I had a set of aftermarket tail lamps on another vehicle, and everytime it rained and/or became humid, condensation formed on the inside of the lens and it looked like sh!t.

    What do you use to affix the lens to the housing?

    Any required upgrade/change to relays or fuses on my end? (I.e., can I just plug them in, or is more required?)

    I ask because I'm very interested!:D

    I can include some new rubber weather seal for around the taillights if you want. The clear coat is only a precaution. The only change to relays is replacing the flasher relay on the interior fuse panel. I include the new electronic flasher relay. Besides that, everything else is plug and play.
