    3” lift, black step bars, aftermarket wheels, LT305/55R20 was this way when I brought it.
    Has anyone changed these out with LED lights and have lasted long period of time, I have found a few off brands on eBay I just want them to last.

    My truck did not come stock with it so I added the VLEDS universal puddle lights they are very bright my Cowerker has a sequoia with stock puddle lights they are so dim he had no idea he had them so now he’s going to order VLEDS I have no idea how long they last just did it about a month ago.

    I have eBay ones on my Sequoia. Plug and play and very bright. I think I got them for like $10. Very happy with the purchase. 20190927_181034.jpg 20190927_181051.jpg

    Would you happen to remember what you wired them into? I am looking for the circuit in the kick panels on each side.

    The driver's side floorboard light.
    That way they dim on and dim off...

    Same circuit as the key ring light..

    They dim on the kick panel circuit as well. I had them that way on my 2013 but the wiring is different on the 2020. I have my Vleds footwell kit using the drivers footwell socket.

    So tap into that circuit and be done with it...
    Why make it harder than is has to be?

    The lights are LED, they draw very little current..
    What other circuit in the kick panel dims on and off like the footwell lights?

    The kick panel just makes for a cleaner and shorter wiring run.

    Can you see the gap mine has? It won't click or even stay in there

    Did you by chance tie into VLED footwell light wiring?

    I installed some of these last week, the ones from Moforkit on Amazon. They fit perfectly, just had to help the clip slip past the opening on the mirror and they’re held tight.

    Nice upgrade, much brighter especially against super white paint!

    Swapped out the stock ones for Vleds, very nice to have the whole side of the truck lit up.
