    Hey guys,

    New Tacoma owner here; switched from Subaru and I LOVE my new truck. However, I am wondering if anyone knows about whether I could swap the taillights on my 07 for the newer LED ones that come on the 09/10 :confused:? I like the looks of the new taillights wayy better , but I don't know if they changed the light size, or the rear quarter panel at all?

    Any help or advice anyone can give would be appreciated!!! :D

    Schawweet!!! I guess the real question now is if anyone has replaced taillights before, and how did they do it? I took a quick look a few days ago and the area around the lights looks pretty sealed. I'd really prefer not to tear the whole bed apart if I can avoid it. I have the Toyota Comprehensive warranty as well...think this would void the warranty?

    There is 2 bolts on the side when the tailgate is down that you have to remove... Then they just pop right out.
