    We have had 4 toyota SR5 trucks and they are the best truck in the world. You can get 200K miles very easy with no trouble.

    My dash lights on my 2003 SR5 extended cab have burned out. If I drive at night, I can not see how fast I'm going. Is it hard to replace the bulbs? Does the dash have to be removed to get to them? Any suggestion would be helpful.

    i think its the same steps as the mod that changes the lights to different colors. just search for that and it will give you all the steps. if i remember the dash does have to be removed but from reading it doesnt seem like it would be that much work just tedious

    i used this for mine. just make sure to disconnect the battery first. and also reconnect the dimmer and test out the lights first before putting the dash back together bc the lights may need to be taken out and put back in flipped. there are 4 lights for the dash (behind the green knob looking things) and they are bulb number 914
