    Very nice.

    For the price of these trucks they should come installed from the factory.

    Mine did too nice led light on inside of the bed , what thy should come from the factory is led interior lights and a floor board light for the passenger side , and the tailgate should lock with the button fob like the doors ! Instead of having to mod these things

    What's sad I had a Honda Ridgeline rtl came with some many features standard that a lot of trucks don't have I know it's not like the biggest baddest truck but I had it for 10 years got it on college and it was good for what it was but I loved all the features didn't have to spend a lot of money on basic things that should come with truck

    Yeah my past two trucks were f150's, last one a loaded 13 fx4....was looking at a 15 platinum f150 when I spotted this tundra. Opted for the tundra obviously, but maaaaan the bells and whistles on that platinum f150

    Thanks!!!! They're wired to the cargo lights....come on when doors open, unlocked from fob, or when cargo lamp switch is turned on. I found a link on one of these forums to a set of instructions and printed them off. They're pretty lengthy!!!! But aside from telling me which wire to tap into and including templates for drilling the holes in the bed....it's a pretty straightforward self explanatory install

    that's interesting maybe it comes with crewmax or it is an optional package. I have a 2016 limited DC and no bed lights.
    it has the cargo light which is not too bad at night!

    edit:
    after seeing the above post, maybe it is a 2017 thing!

    Yeah, they don't come stock with 'em. Only bed lights it has are the ones on the rear brake light above the cabin. Not bright enough to light up the entire bed, even with the LEDs I installed.

    Nice, I just installed these also but wired them up differently worth the money. I have them come on when the bed is open.

    I considered that, but I put some bed lights on my last truck and I remembered how often I used them with the tailgate up so I opted for that route

    Mine came with the bed lights as well. I have the SR5 upgrade package though. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    Looks great! Glad to see the new 17' Tundra trucks have that option now.

    This is what the dealer told me ^^^
    My dealer had a few trucks on the lot that had them installed at the region and they installed them in my truck for me as part of my deal.

    My PRO came with them. It looks from your pic that your bed bolts are not sprayed with Bedliner?
