    I want to finish out my lighting, and I can't decide on which tail lights I want to buy.

    Go ahead and vote, and give me an explanation of why you voted for that one.

    Here is what's goin on with my tacoma right now.

    Just installed new projector housings, going to put 8K HIDs this week.

    Yellow Fogs.

    I would like black housing tail lights.

    And the IPCW black 3rd brake light.

    Yea. The other thing is that I have seen the JDMs on two or three other trucks.

    and I have yet to see the Bermuda IPCWs on a truck.


    Ooohhhhhh to be different.

    Yea, I saw theirs.

    I'm actually in the process of getting all of the chrome off of my truck.

    Except for the little on my wheels.

    I want a new front and rear bumper, and new grill surround.

    Could take me a little while, but that's my big goal.

    I chose A because they look really unique. I don't think I've ever seen those. Either or would look nice in my opinion.

    Also

    The IPCW is around $300

    and the JDM is about $120, because it uses the existing stock bulbs.

    I'm likin those JDM blacked out ones. Just wish the blinker lens was yellow. I do like that it doesn't have the bump in the lens tho. Tradeoffs. I want those & the headlights like yours to finish out my base model black trim thing goin on. Where'd you see those JDMs? Ebay?

    Wow. Good find.

    I think I'm getting pushed towards A.

    LEDs look so much better.

    Yea, I know what you mean.

    There are a couple of the JDM housings on ebay. Priced differently, but some have free shipping, and some dont.

    I rather the complete blackout look. But for lighting purposes, I'd get "A" and black them out.

    Def. 2nd option!!! Just don't like the 1st one, at all. IMO, looks like something off of a Honda Civic w/ a fart pipe. Have you looked into getting the led version that's on the 2009s? I have em, and love em.

    Off the topic - What bull-bar is on your truck? It's sweeetttt...
