Merideth: If you want to complete the look of smoked-out lighting on your 2005 to 2015 Tacoma, this smoked third brake light will be right up your alley. Now, this will do a great job at replacing a damaged or worn-out light, refreshing the look of the back end of your Tacoma, and matching with any other smoked accessories, adding a stealthier appearance to the truck. This will also be a good option for the Tacoma owner looking for small easy mods to make a big difference visually, while increasing a little bit of lighting performance, making it more noticeable on the street. Getting into construction, this will have a heavy-duty chrome housing, very similar to the factory third brake light, and will have a smoked polycarbonate lens for that stealthy appearance. Now, speaking of durability, this will also be weatherproof to prevent any damage to the LEDs inside.Now, what I will say is that this will be more on the subtle side when it comes to the smoked finish compared to some other choices, which will be great if you don't want to compromise any lighting performance there. Now, this will be very bright in comparison to your factory third brake light with multiple powerful red LEDs on the inside. Not to mention, this will have a straightforward plug-and-play install, perfect for the Tacoma owner who wants to keep it simple when it comes to mods. Now, this will be one of your most affordable options for an LED third brake light coming in at roughly $75. Now, when comparing it to other choices available in the category, other options may include a different style, like a darker lens or even a clear lens for a more classic approach. Overall, if you're in search of an affordable way to complete the smoked LED look and upgrade the rear end of your Tacoma, then this is a great way to do it.When it comes to install, I'm gonna give this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about 30 minutes to get the job done with some basic hand tools. At this point, we can head over to the shop to check out a detailed breakdown of the install. That's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's get into it.Man: The tools you're gonna need for this installation include a ratchet, a T20 Torx socket, and a trim removal tool. How are we doing? Today, we have a third brake light that we're gonna install on our Tacoma, and I'm gonna show you how to do it. So, let's get started. So, as you can see, we hopped up in the bed, and the first tool we need is our T20 Torx so that we can remove the two screws holding this in place. So, little note, when removing these small screws here in the plastic, I would highly recommend just using a regular ratchet as opposed to an electric because you don't wanna put too much pressure or torque on these because they could crack, potentially break. Now, with our plastic trim removal tool, we're gonna gently pry in around the edges here of the housing of our third brake light to remove the glue from the cab. Now that we have the housing out, we have access to the connector here. So, as you can see, if you follow the wires to this connector right here, it's the brown connector, and it's a simple push tab to release. So, just push in that small tab there and pull out, and we can get our factory third brake light out of the way.Now we got our aftermarket third brake light, and the first thing we wanna do is turn it over to remove this protective film from the double-sided adhesive. Now that we got the protective film removed, we can connect our connector, and put our third brake light into place. Make sure that your connector's seated properly. Once that's done, can stick it into place, and now we can put our screws back in. Now that we have our third brake light stuck in place, we're gonna use our factory hardware and our T25 socket to secure it down. That's gonna wrap up this review and install of our third brake light with the smoked lens for the '05 to '15 Tacoma. Thank you for watching, and for all things Tacoma, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.
