    Ummm, I guess the bermuda. It's got the black housing with the clear lens. But before that I had the smoked one with the chrome housing and smoked lens. That's just sitting in my garage though for back-up.:cool:

    Yea, that's what I was wondering about the smoked.

    I thought it was probably chrome on the inside.
    That's not what I want, so I will probably get the bermuda.

    I'm not a big fan of either, but if it were me I would go for A.

    But... I would take them apart and paint the silver reverse light location black to match the rest. It just stands out too much.

    At first I thought that too about the B's. First time I used reverse at night, I decided maybe not. The tradeoff is worth it to me. Much better than the oem. I actually feel like I have rev lights now.

    I'm thinkin the Bermuda 3rd light from the above description so it'd match the tail style. Pics? Scoping...........found. Dude says it will fit 1st & 2nd gen. This one........

    not the ebay dude. Talked to the store that sells it for 104.50. Says... # THL-60121 - Toyota Tacoma (Fits New & Old Body Style) 1995-2009, Custom Bermuda Black L.E.D. 3rd Brake Light.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^Got this. Does fit 1st & 2nd gen. Couldn't handle the chrome trim on it so I sanded it off & painted the trim with black satin plastic fusion paint & clear coated it. Also had to cut plug off oem so it'd plug in real nicelike. Left enough wire to go back oem if need be.

    Personally, I'd go with the JDM ones. The light shapes compliment the shapes of your projector headlights better. Looks more cohesive. However, the other ones look cool too. Can't lose either way!:)

    Have any of yall seen the white backup light bulbs that are actually really really white?

    Is there a replacement bulb for the tacoma that is much whiter and brighter?

    How blind are you when trying to back up? How bright are the stop lights on bright sunny days? Those are my lens tinting concerns.

    I prefer the 09....but the 05-08 look good to...


    Maybe customize a set of stock tail lights. Tint or smoke them. :D
