    Same here. I was also taught on any incline to turn the wheels towards the curb so if you car or truck starts to roll it technically will roll into the curb and stop. I've never had to carry wheel chocks aside from off road.

    That's a horrible idea. What time?

    Installed VLEDS front turn signal lights late last night.
    They are BRIGHT.
    You couldn’t really see the turn signals after I switched the low beams for LEDS so this fixes that safety issue. Not to mention it’s sure to get distracted drivers attention with how bright they are.
    They also now match the @MESO turn signals where before the fronts would blink at different times.
    Shoutout to @Schlucki for the recommendation.

    1. Here is a photo of the VLEDS on the left side and OEM on the right.
    2. VLEDS on left and OEM on right w/ Low beams turned on.

    Made a couple things, and did some stuff over the last couple days.
    Wasn’t happy with how I had the control box for my winch mounted in the bumper, so I made a bracket and moved it.
    Off shoot of the project to clean up wiring for my light bar and HID retrofits, and put a disconnect switch in line for the winch.
    Disregard the loose wire on my tray, they’re quickies to test everything while I wait on the right wire and circuit breaker to get delivered.
    I think I did ok for a right angle grinder, drill press and a vise!

    These are the ones I went with, but in the non-ck version, love the way they look in the bucket when they're not on:

    https://www.vleds.com/closeout/led-bulbs/7443-6-hv-a-ck.html

    but looking at the sockets it appears you can run either, maybe.

    Also, @Rottencotton would those bulbs work for you since you have an SR? I know some of their amber bulbs have a disclaimer about not being run on turn signals that are also used as DRLs.

    Lots of new goodies: Added Frontrunner Roof rack Slimline 2. Was a toss up between Frontrunner and Prinsu, but FR just have WAY to many add-ons. Added water, plano rifle case and wolf pack storage.







    Tweaked the water hose with some added ball valves. Thought I would need a pump or something, but it turns out when between the tank being up high, and the added pressure when going up elevation, the tank has been pressurized on its own. Huge improvement on quality of life having 11 gallons of water.




    Added a propane bottle and holder. Super secure on top, doesn't budge. Moved the plano case around. Still finalizing the roof.



    She's coming along. Hoping to finish...soon XD

    It looks like both might work?
    The ones I provided in the link worked for me and on the product photo it shows a Tacoma.

    Also @Rottencotton just be aware that you might need resistors (I’m not too sure on that though) If someone on here can elaborate on that but, I have meso turn signals which have built in resistors and I didn’t need them for these or any other LED lighting.

    Yeah, both work for the tacoma, i just got the other ones because i didn't want to have that amber/yellow look in the bucket when they were off, like the stock bulb gives, didn't know if it would be the same reflecting off all the tiny leds. also they were on clearance when i got them so bonus! I also picked up these for the side marker lights, cause why not:

    I did require resistors for the front and rear signals but cost is not bad and install was a #2 on the 1-10 scale. Well worth the upgrade.
