Rear Hatch & Cargo Area LED Light Swap on 5th Gen Toyota 4Runner
- Trunk or Cargo Area Light Bulb: DE3175
The rear hatch/ cargo/ trunk lights on our 4Runner are not very bright. If you are looking to increase the brightness of your hatch lights, you may want to swap them out with LEDs.
Beyond increasing the brightness, your color will change from yellow and dim orange to a crystal bright write color. The color of LEDs looks much better.
The rear hatch and trunk area is one of the most important areas to light up. We use our rear trunk for groceries, hauling the kid’s stuff, trips to Home Depot and so much more. When you are accessing the rear trunk at night with the factory lighting, it’s hard to see.
With new LED bulbs, it will light everything up.
