    I want to change out the interior lighting in my truck. The stock bulbs are not bright enough.
    Thanks for the advice.

    Headlight revolution has an interior kit I believe. You can also find quality packs on ebay pretty cheap just look up 2016 tundra interior LED's and you should get a bunch of results.

    Here's a few pics of my Headlight Revolution kit. (Still awaiting my footwell LED that is on backorder)


    Very bright and easy to install!

    Wes, that is the kit for the dome and map lights. You will have to add the kit for the vanity mirrors which will add another $32.30 to your total. If I'm not wrong you should be able to do that through your link.

    Also, I believe the dome/map kit can be ordered in a few other colors if you don't want white.

    Right on. Seems reasonable for good lights. I saw they have all the exterior lights as well. That site can get me in trouble, haha. Thanks!

    The only exterior lights I have ordered are the cargo ones (they're bright, there might be better), the 3rd brake light (same can be said for these), reverse level 2 (very bright, when they are off I wish they were more clear looking), license plates (bright), fog lights (probably not as good as the Morimoto ones). I wouldn't waste your time on the headlight ones as they cast a strange light pattern out of housing.

    Yeah. Well I for sure want to replace the 3rd brake light and cargo lights. I may get a Spyder taillight or something, so I'll wait on those. Probably buy that other fog light that's been floating around and not sure what I'm doing on headlights yet. Either Spyder or retrofit my factory.

    Do members by chance get any discounts for Headlight Revolution? I looked and didn't see them as a vendor, but thought I'd ask first before buying. Any Promotion Codes out there?

    After looking at the bulbs they use, I found several on Amazon that look similar and WAY cheaper. Like the Vanity lights, $10 for 4 on there vs $32 on HR. Only question is how good are they and how long will they last. Also found some for the dome lights where you get 10 for $11.99. Humm...

    Normally I feel that you get what you pay for but you see these bulbs all across the price spectrum. Sometimes you hear where the cheaper bulbs don't last very long or blow fuses. For electrical, I would probably opt for the more expensive product but that's just me.

    Yeah, I'm with you on that. Just makes you wonder why one is $12 and the other is $45. Are they really that much better or are they taking advantage by packaging them all together and making it easy to buy them since there are so damn many options.

    I know what you mean. For all you know, they may be made by the same manufacturer and just packaged differently. I guess I am always cautious when it comes to electrical stuff and I'm sure I overpay at times for that.

    Is there a list anywhere of which bulb you need for each location? HR has the "kits", but looking at VLED or other websites, they have them as the bulb number. Can someone who has successfully changed their interior and exterior lights to LEDs, share what bulb numbers they used for each location?

    Footwell:

    For interior LEDs the reasonably priced bulbs will do just well. For higher output LEDs like reverse lights, turn signals, and headlights, I would definitely not skimp.

    I've had interior LED lighting in my past 3 cars and my wife's car and have never had any type of failure. Interior lighting isn't connected to CANBUS systems and is very low draw.
