    Guys - Any suggestions where to buy new puddle lamps assemblies? I'm going to go with LEDs versus the OE product. I live in Wisconsin and was popping these off and the little plastic tab that holds them in place broke off. I now need to replace the complete puddle lamp assembly (both sides) versus the light bulb inside the plastic assembly. I live in Wisconsin and was doing this with the temps were in the 20s. Plastic is brittle when temps are in the 20s.

    Personally, I would (and did) purchase the ones in the first post. They are the whole assembly and are LED. I don't believe you can replace just the bulb on any of the brands for these lights without cutting into the lens.

    I ordered the same one from same seller and it didn't fit. Housing was slightly too small and would not clip onto my mirrors. The lense wasn't glued/secured properly onto the housing. I emailed seller and he gave me a full refund. Junk if you ask me.

    You might take a look at Ebay and search Tundra Puddle Lights. There are several sellers.

    Don’t waste your time buying cheap ones from China on EBay. Takes about 2 weeks to ship and in my case, it didn’t fit.

    I was wondering if those were going to end up being junk. For the record, the ones BlueBottle posted in the OP are still working fine for me. The free license plate ones konked out though.

    Rather than throwing it away, I was able to remove the LED light board and use it inside my stock puddle light housing. It took some work to remove/cut the lense from stock housing and glue everything back but it worked out alright.

    I got the very same 1 because of that price & it actually got to me 2 weeks earlier. The brightness is very nice & a huge improvement over stock. Initially i had a slight issue installing it because the housing was slightly rounder/ wider than the oem lights but with a little tetris-sing it went in fine. The 2nd day 1 of them came loose but i realized the clip wasnt fully seated properly. Had it on for over 1 month now with zero issues. @famouzstarz was the 1 that linked the ebay listing & had the lights for longer. See if he'll chime in on its durability

    My eBay lights are still shining brite and holding up I've been off road, going for fire wood, and driving over washboard roads and they are still in there.

    For the price paid I definitely would not hesitate to order another set.

    Ordered these puddle lights from the original post, tight fit but they work great. I broke the OEM ones getting them out.

    Do you know if the SR5 is wired for these puddle lights?

    Also, is there a thread on how to do a mod on running board lights? I remember seeing one a while, just can't seem to find it now. Thanks in advance!

    Sr5 is same as pro. So that would be a no most likely.

    No clue on the running board lights.
