    Is it just me or do you guys think amber DTRL's are odd? SR5 and Limited i believe have amber dtrl and i think you get the led dtrl on the Platinum.
    Seems like only the Tundras on the road have the ambers...

    I would rather have the LEDs.

    I will be honest for some reason I like the amber DRL's, not as much as the LED DRL's, but I don't mind them a bit.

    I know the Tacoma's had amber DRL's as well.

    I kind of like them... They look good on a black truck. But I have seen some kits that use white light. They look good too.

    I remember seeing some LED DRL's that are white when solid and turn amber for turn signal. I think it was on the DDM tuning page. Let me look. I was highly considering.

    Well here is one from Amazon. Not the one i remember seeing but similar.
    $30 JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright PX Chipsets White/Yellow 3157 3155 3457 4157 Switchback LED Bulbs For Turn Signal Lightshttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RV46YBC?keywords=led 4157NA&qid=1450157049&ref_=sr_1_2&refinements=p_89:JDM ASTAR&sr=8-2
    Note: you might need to add 50W 6-Ohm load resistors or change flash rely to prevent the LED bulbs from hyper flashing,


    The one i saw had the resistor in the set ready to go. Just cant find it now.

    I think I know the brand you are talking about @csuviper .

    The Retrofit source also sells an LED switchback and an HD resisitor.

    I have heard that some resisitors run hot, and the whole idea of going through trouble and having an electrical part get hot didn't seem worth it.
