    I was wanting to change my rear license plate lights with LED super white to match the front. Maybe even the white back-up lights...Does anyone know if the 2017 bulbs would fit the 2018's? Most places i call say that the truck is too new to have a part number for it yet

    It’s the same bulb numbers (194/168 for the license plates and 7440 for reverse). I thought I remember reading a person had issues putting LED bulbs in the reverse/brake but they may have been cheap, crappy bulbs or something. Others with the 2018 “upgraded” electrical system and who replaced reverse bulbs will have to chime in to make sure it’s all good. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be, but...

    3” lift, black step bars, aftermarket wheels, LT305/55R20 was this way when I brought it.
    I bought my at Walmart they fit ok, but the backup bulbs didn’t work. Also if you change out the map light bulbs above the dash (remove the entire console) much easier, I bent the reflector and then damaged the socket had to remove the entire unit to fix. Very easy to remove, replace bulb and reinstall.

    VLEDs.com !!! They won’t disappoint. They only carry quality leds.
    Just enter a 2017 tundra. All the rear lights are the same still.
