    Good Afternoon TW,

    I'm questing for turn signal bulbs for the front of my 2011 Tacoma that are 'Chrome'. I'd like to get rid of the amber color on the front of my truck. I'd rather not do LED as well because of first the price for a good set, and the resistors. Rather just throw some bulbs in there and call it good. I have found many sites offering 3157 bulbs in chrome/amber, but I am unable to find a source of 3157 (or similar) in CK configuration. Which to my understanding is required to function for our trucks.

    Thanks for any leads!

    Not sure if you're trolling, or you don't understand what is going on here.

    I installed these in my last ride and although it looked clean, the light itself was considerably dimmer. The chrome coat definitely affects the light output.

    And it's alright to derp them but just make sure you use house brand blinker fluid so that it doesn't peel the derp.

    Installed! Thanks again to smaldo76 for the quick shipping. No night shots yet, but they look pretty much the same to the original Sylvanias, just more of a deeper amber, and very slightly less bright.
