    no i didnt do it. had a guy in California do it. I believe he has a small business thats he does a lot of lighting work hazzardous lighting. if you are interested in speaking with him let me know. he is resonable on prices.

    That looks really sharp! I hate the fact that I have to have my dash lights cranked all the way up during the daytime in order to see all of the guages with sunglasses on. I'd bet this helps somewhat with that problem.

    I love the look of different color leds. Looks really good. I want to have red done in my truck, but some big time new is going to have to wear off for me to have the balls to try doing it.

    Yes, the Tundra LED dash conversions are identical in design. Toyota keeps them the same, even though the style of the clusters change. I am over on the TacomaWorld forum, and we do the LED dash light conversions, as well as LED interior and exterior lighting for TW members. I would be more than happy to offer our services here, if there are those interested.

    Sorry for the delay in response. Basically you will let me know what you want changed (Colors) and then you would have to ship the cluster to me. I can install them and usually get them back in the mail same day. Yes, you will have to be without your cluster for a couple of days. The other option is local members can come by the shop after letting me know the colors wanted and wait for it. Takes about 2 hours or so.

    I'm interested in doing my dash in a white LED, can I give you the part number of the bulbs I would need and have them shipped to me?

    Not that easy to install. Requires removing solder and soldering in new LEDs that are extremely small.

    Soldering isn't really a problem for me, the only problem is getting the time to pull everything apart due to my work schedule.

    I'm interested. What would be a ball park price to have the cluster done in blue as well as the various dash switches/heater controls? Can the stereo be done as well?

    I think it was definitly worth the upgrade. Guy was quik about the turn around time also. I was in FL and he was in CA. Only 6 days total back to my door.

    So far I've asked 2 people that do this for a ball park price and have't gotten an answer back yet. I'm sure they are either busy or forgot which is fine since I'm not in a huge hurry yet. Still would like to know what I would be looking at though.
