    I've never seen it done on a Tacoma yet but I think it would be a neat idea. Doesn't seem like the simplest of mods but if you do it post a lot of pics.

    Way more then I can really afford...
    My thought would be to flush mount some in the bottom of the doors pointing straight down so when the door is opened it would illuminate the ground allowing you to see where you are stepping.
    Although, the door handle idea is kinda cool. Might not be TOO hard to run wiring through the handles, provided they are hollow, or at least open on the inside...

    That's exactly what I was thinking I picked up a couple LED lights that I saw somebody do to a Tundra it was posted back in 2009 so I'm going to try this on Saturday hopefully it works out
