I had some body work done and the shop owner threw in some foglights. Now I have to figure out what relay to get and which switch. It looks like there's a relay where the foglight relay is supposed to plug in.
Any advice like part numbers or anything to help move this project along would be appreciated.

I took my truck wheeling and had to do the ride of shame home. My steering rack gave out after 13 miles of beating it hard and I had to limp the last mile to pavement to call the tow truck.ImageUploadedByAutoguide1352611032.292097.jpg

After trading-in the '07 I discovered that the new Tundra didn't have the "puddle lights" like the old one did, and I didn't realize how much I missed them, especially now that it's getting dark at 5PM. Also, since the new truck (2012 DC RW) is black, the Mrs. has a hard time finding the outside door handle at night. So I dug around the different Tundra forae and came across this...
It was pretty straightforward, the most difficult part being the running of wires through the rubber boot between the cab and the door. (I ended up taping the wires to a heavy-duty weed-wacker string that I had lying around...stiff, but flexible enough to be huge help!) I used the same LEDs that the original poster used. The only thing that I did differently was that, instead of just glueing the LEDs from the inside of the lock cover, I put a piece of tape on the outside of the lock cover and filled the hole with a clear epoxy just before placing the LED into it. After the epoxy set, in about 10 minutes, I removed the tape. This gave a more flush, lens-like appearance and, perhaps, diffuses the light a bit. (More of a "flood light" than a "spot light", I don't know.)
All-in-all, a very simple, but effective mod. I think it throws more light onto the ground than the lights that came with the '07, and definitely makes the black door handles much easier to find in the dark. I like the way they fade on-and-off with the remote lock.
