    I would like to ask if anyone knows if there is a footwell light on the passenger side? I found the one on the driver's side without issues. I cannot find a passenger's side nor a glove box light. It would seem that both would have existed, but I need someone with 2006 Tundra Double Cab experience or the equivalent. Also if so do you know the LED bulb sizes, salute!

    Glove box light is in the upper shell. Remove the glove box (2 screws at bottom) and then the liner/shell (3 screws along the top). Glove box light is mounted in the liner/shell. Size is a 37, same as the driver footwell.

    Also, the glove box light only works when the headlights are on. In case you are trying to test it.

    No passenger footwell light. You could easily add one in by tapping into the wires right before the driver's light socket, then run additional wire to a socket on the passenger's side that uses the same size bulb. Then comes the question of mounting the socket. Another option is wiring into the door light but those don't have the same timed shutoff.

    There's also a light inside the ash tray just so you know. Some members on here were surprised to learn that so figure I'd pass that along.

    You have to remove the radio bezel to get to it or take out the ash tray slide. I stabbed out the green lens for better light output.

    Thanks, folks, great information, I am learning so much, can't get over how helpful everyone is in this forum. About the ashtray light, do you know the bulb size or can recommend one to use. About the footwell, so my truck has no passenger-side footwell light, right? Why do you think Toyota did that, maybe passengers do not ride at night in Japan, just kidding, salute!

    On the other hand, if you ever need help working on a tank, I'm your guy, salute!
