    Think maybe you can't buy just the lens itself. Have to buy the whole assembly.

    Hi all, when I was researching this I was looking to buy the body only, but I could not get one. As it was I rehabed the existing one with the metal tape! My fix was cheaper than spending over 100 bucks for a whole replacement. It's all good!

    How does our 3rd brake light assembly install? Does if have a FIPG gasket or just a rubber gasket to keep water out? I should probably replace mine before they discontinue them. I've never taken mine apart and it still has the original bulbs.

    I got the whole toyota 3rd light assembly somewhere in the last 2 years. I bet they are still around. They do come with a new gasket built in.

    Four screws for the chmsl. Comes with sticky goopy seal. Hardest part is removing the goop from the last one.

    Yeah, I wound up using some goo gone to finish the job, but the big chunks I scraped.

    I also kinda f'd myself b/c in my youth I ran a sirius antenna out through the chmsl and re-gooped it. At least it doesn't leak like 3G Taco chmsl :)

    I opened mine up on the Tundra because cargo light was out. Found the meltage, did the clean up & bulb swap. i was lucky the burn wasn't too bad, but the brake lights were still working.

    Well burning the candle on both ends tonight, leaving for a work trip Sunday and family road trip Saturday I wanted my paint to have at least 24 hours to cure before reinstalling. My Supervisor is surely pissed off at me but when it comes to me working on the truck, when is she not? Fender flares finally painted, and managed to get those mirror caps off only breaking one tab in the process, can’t wait to see how it looks installed. Good thing about the work trip is rumor has it I’ll only be occupied until noon each day and there’s an auto hobby shop on that base with no one to fuss at me that I’ve been out there all afternoon :D

    Thanks.

    Not sold on them yet. 1" seems like too much. I'm gonna try spacing the rear a bit.

    It's why I didn't go for the seat jackers, I was pretty sure I wouldn't be 100% happy.

    I reckon if the DIY lifts moved the seat forward ~10-15mm, it'd be a-ok.

    Oh, and my High mount stop light was burnt to a crisp too. Happy to have replaced the whole assembly for full reflection
