Front corner bulbs

Hi all,

i'd like to change the front corner marker lights...they're not blinkers, just parking lights. Right now they're a dull/dim white light. I'd like them to be a nice bright amber color to match the front lower blinkers (which i have wired to remain on when the ignition is on...when i did the DTRL mod)...but i don't know what bulbs to use. I'm afraid if i just go and get a set of amber bulbs that fit, they will also be dull-looking and dim. Maybe amber LEDs? but I sure don't want to mess with all kinds of grounding trouble like I had with the DTRL mod.

Has anyone swapped out the corner marker lights?

Thanks

Re: Front corner bulbs

I went with "194" size LED 9-SMD amber bulb [USA seller on eBay]

Bright, but not enough to be distracting though... comes on more yellow then amber...

I went with one of those eBay-special "smoked" tint clear-lamps for the lower bumper signals. Since its "aftermarket" lens- It uses a different size bulb then the OE lower lamp.

But I went PUTCO brand 1156 plasma LED bulbs [lower signal lamp]....

.................................................. .................................................. .............................

Goes good with the 6000K HIDs in my Tacoma....

Re: Front corner bulbs

The stock corner bulbs are 5W. For incandescent bulbs, the 921 (18W) and 922 (12W), are quite a step up in output. I ran the 921 in my corners for many months. The lens got warm, but not hot. I have some amber LED bulbs in there now ( http://www.vleds.com/6-a.html ) and they are fine, but could be brighter. They aren't nearly as bright as the 921 incandescents.
Matt

Re: Front corner bulbs

In case some of you want to avoid the eBay stuff-


Advance Autoparts is having a sale on Sylvania LED bulbs.
Surprisingly decent pricing plus it appears there is a lifetime warranty on certain sizes...

Hey "Cadman33619" so what did you go with? Any info or pics?
