    Been running them about a month and a half. Fitment is pretty good, no complaints on it. Easy plug and play, no hyperflash issues running them together with my alpharex NOVA headlights, was really crossing my fingers on that one since there's aftermarket tails don't get along with aftermarket headlights.
    Mine arrived with small defects on the edges of the lenses, reached out to the seller they offered a partial refund or a replacement, went for the partial refund since its not too noticeable unless you stare at them.
    No issues with the brightness.
    They have 2 wires, blue and purple, that you can connect or disconnect, one is for the sequential turn and the other is for the startup sequence when you turn on the truck. I disconnected the purple to enable the sequential turn. Haven't disconnected the blue to see what the startup sequence looks like yet.

    The listing I purchased them from the picture showed the red turn signals but the description said amber turns. Ended up receiving the red turns which doesn't really matter to me personally. Guessing that if the listing picture shows amber they'll ship you amber, idk, it's confusing.

    I'm pretty happy with them so far.

    Would love to see the pics. Thank you!

    Also…anyone install those headlights in the thread above?

    I think I’d really like to add the headlights and taillights.

    Your pictures makes those tail lights look much more appealing then what they have on their site.

    Thanks!
    I think what makes them look funny in their listings is that the lights are more than likely edited on to the truck

    Looks great! I want to buy them but am unsure of how it will look against the quicksand. Generally I’m not a fan of blacked out tail lights on quicksand but these don’t seem totally blacked out so I might give them a try

    I'd say they'd look good on quick sand too!

    There's another version that are clear instead of red. Haven't seen them on ebay, they're on Amazon but they're sold and shipped from Vland right now, no amazon ship option yet.

    Looking to update my tail lights. I hate the design of the Morimotos. It's basically a tacoma tailight.
    The Vland 3rd-Gen style tailights looks so much better.

    Does anyone have pictures about how bright they are under broad daylight? direct sunlight? What about night time pictures?
    I currently have Vleds on mine and i want to see if these tailights are brighter or just as bright. Thank you.

    I'd be interested in your Vleds if you're looking to sell them. I just want to upgrade from incandescent lol. Thanks

    Not a problem and will let you know! I have the modded vleds where it uses the top and bottom lights as a brake light/running light.
    and the reverse light is primarily used as as amber turn signal with a reverse light secondary function.

    here’s some night pics, I’m not a good photographer lol but I think they’ll work. driving at night when you brake or flip your turn signals you can see the red light in the side view mirror lighting up everything behind you.

    Reverse through head unit (pls ignore the image looking like dookie head unit screen is higher res than what the oem cam feeds through.)

    no problem:thumbsup:

    yea they're pretty bright, rolled up next to a new gen tundra a saturday, and the VLANDs seemed to be a lot brighter than the OEMs on the new gen.
