The 1156 pigtails that I ordered online did not work out the way I wanted and they would have looked super Jerry-rigged. So I removed a couple 1156 sockets from an old 99 tail light housing and used that. I had to grind down the front lip of the socket and make the overall diameter of the socket slightly smaller to fit into the pre-existing holes of the 01-04 housing. I then used some plastic epoxy putty to hold the sockets in the hole. It turned out really well and allowed me to use some cree led 1156 bulbs as reverse lights. I will take some pics of it tonight and post them.

Your 2 days late. Where are the pics of the tailights at night?

Yeah, I wasn't sure how much brighter they were than the stock 921 so I parked my truck next to my work truck, a 02 Taco, and compared them. It was a bit brighter and more blue-ish cuz the led bulbs are 6000k.

Oh I completely agree...especially with tinted windows Plus I am really liking the clear/red tails. They are so much brighter period. My tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals are bright as phuck and I love it. It's really cool too because now I can see my reverse lights in parking garages during the day which really helps with the tinted windows.
