    some of us are cursed with tape that would not adhere and fingers too larger to get in there, besides pulling it is only a minute or two total

    Yep. The Ultinons light up the ground much better than the OEM bulbs.

    A heads up on the puddle lights. Might not be a bad idea to use some bulb grease on the bulb base or in the socket.

    When I removed my OEM bulbs, there was moisture in the socket on both sides of the truck. Probably from the car wash, but who knows. The notable thing was that it was wet on both sides.

    While your in there, might as well grease em up for long term viability.

    I'm not impressed with the LED backup lights. I put Halogen's in the Tacoma and they were way brighter than these. I make swap them out and waste the $26 on the LED's :-(

    Those Sylvania 921's aren't good in the 4runner housing.

    I just got these. They're incredible and only $12. I'm blown away by how bright they are.

    I think you'll be pleased with the output of the bulbs. Longevity is yet to be determined. For 12 bucks, if I get a couple years I'll be pleased.

    Got them this week. Too cold to install until today. Will find out tomorrow morning. The Pax side Sylvania popped out of socket, laying in lens. Will pull lens next weekend to fish it out :-0
    Couldn't wait till next weekend. Warmed enough to do it! :)

    I did the same thing on passenger side. Had to fish it out with tape on a stick. Are you still having good luck with the Sirius 921?

    Great write up. Going to order some for my 4Runner as well. I too am not a fan of the stock lighting.

    The Sylvania Zevo (local) and Philips Ultinon (Amazon) are great bulbs.

    swapped out my cargo, dome and one map light with HID Kit pros LED's yesterday.

    ran into what i hope is not a big problem:

    as i was attempting to put the drivers side map light LED in, I could not get it to fit. the passenger side also gave me trouble but I managed to get it in and the light worked fine. on the drivers side i was pushing the LED but not too hard and wiggling it a little to see if that would help. then all of a sudden SNAP! the plug for the light looks intact, but im assuming its the surrounding plastic "housing" or attachment piece broke off and is up in the console. i can still see it, but i could also move it around when i tapped it w a needle nose pliers. i know i will have to take the console off which wont be very hard, but god damnit am i mad at myself for this one! hopefully it is just a piece of plastic that maybe i can krazy glue back together. i dont think any of the electrical aspect of it is damaged (at least what i could see before dropping the console).

    anyhow, i put red in the cargo, bright white in the dome and one red in the drivers side map. they all look great!
