Sometimes, the best mods are ones that don’t break the bank and subtly update the look of your truck.
Certain 3rd Gen Tacoma models come standard with chrome side mirror turn signals. If you’re anything like me, you want to remove all of your chrome as fast as possible. Enter the USR Auto LED mirror signal kit. I decided to install these lights for two reasons. Increased visibility, and therefore safety, and, let’s face it… these things are way cool.
Those of us who despise chrome know how ugly the factory mirror turn signals on the Tacoma are. On top of that, the OEM LEDs are weak, to say the least. The output is not very impressive. They might not be the worst at night but in the daytime, they’re very difficult to see, almost useless.
There are a few options for replacements/upgrades but only one, as far as we know, comes with a switchback option. So what does that mean? Simply put, with some additional wiring, this turn signal replacement will have a DRL function.
