Toyota Tundra License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Toyota Tundra. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your Tundra!

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulbs.

With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your Tundra looks at night.

Brightness:

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (24 lumens)
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (56 lumens)
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs! (92 lumens)

Bulb Design

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.


These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Toyota Tundra).

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

Shouldn't be an issue if you are obeying the law ;)

It gives them one less reason to pull you over IMO

But in those rare occasions that a jealous husband sees you leaving his house as he is pulling up, do you really want to give him a better opportunity to see your license plate?

In modern day victim society, the husband is able to see your license plate,track you down and when you have to kill him can I come back and sue you for providing me a license plate bulb that allowed him to ID me?

Are you suggesting that our LEDs could be an accessory to murder? lol

Your website says 2007-2013. Will these bulbs work on a 2014?
We are in the process of updating the site's listings to include the new model years. The 2014+ Tundras use the same 194-bulb size as the previous model years

Feel free to give us a call if you need more information: (314) 205-3033

Hey Nick,

The interior bulbs all worked great, but when I put in the license ones, they do not light up at all. I tried flipping them over and still nothing. When I put the originals back in, they work so I know it's not the fuse. Any ideas what to try next? Thanks.

Try adjusting the metal pins on the LED bulb away from the base a bit to help ensure they are making solid contact with the metal tabs in the factory socket.

If you are installing SMD2s, you'll also need to check to make sure you have the correct polarity.

Our production team tests every bulb by hand prior to packaging them up and shipping them out, so it's unlikely the bulb itself isn't going to work.

Thanks Nick. Your support team emailed that suggestion yesterday and I was able to get them working last night. What I found was I had to move the wire out and also toward the edge of the base to get them to make contact. Your customer service is outstanding - :thx:
