    I'm changing all bulbs to LEDs. So far so good. The brake lights are causing me problems. The brake light uses a 3157 bulb. When I plug it in I either have tail lights or brake lights. It depends which way I have the light plugged in. Any thoughts on why this is? Thanks.

    Rial cast wheels. Looking for TRD Pro grill with chrome surround
    I took a quick at the link above and see they have LED headlight bulbs also. Anyone try these out with the standard Tundra 3rd Gen reflectors? Best headlights I've ever seen are the LED's in the wife's Rogue and I'd like something of similar quality in my Tundra.
