    Pretty sure 05-current use the same brake light. 2nd Gen started 05.

    Don't quote me on it, but I believe this third brake light dates back to '95.5 when the 1st gen came out. And prior to that was used on the T-100.

    That could very well be true.

    Odd that the "will it fit" checker on Amazon says it fits the 2008 but doesn't fit the 2014.

    Pretty sure that the 2008 and the 2014 are the same. The system must not be up to date at Amazon.

    If it fits can you post a pic? I'm looking for a decent smoked 3rd brake light.

    Reading the comments on this one, it looks like it leaks a lot? Might do you some good to load it up with silicone prior to install.

    Good luck with the light!

    I mustered up the courage (and busted the bank) and bought this light:

    http://www.amazon.com/531013-Toyota...bs_auto_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=0FTKZRRYQQR7YGKKJV29

    The Anzo box specifically says it is only for 2005+ generation, and that first gen will *not* fit. Planning on installing it tomorrow, will take pictures.

    Hoping the Anzo holds up... but it's not smoked like yours. Best of luck! :p

    I'm definitely going to silicone it up! Post some pics when you get a chance!

    I got this light for my '07 and first time through an auto car wash it leaked... so what I did was drilled three 1/16 in holes in the bottom if it and it solved the problem. One warning though is that the customer service directly from that company sucks big time. I never got a response from them

    It fogged up once but after I drilled the holes I have not had anymore problems with it. I will get a pic tomorrow when there is some light out.

    Did your box have 2014 on it anywhere?

    Funny you should ask! The box is plain white with a sticker on it that says "95-04 3rd Brake light LED all chrome ". Didn't think to read the box before tossing it in the recycle bin and installing it! Good thing it installed OK. :D
