Burned-out brake lights are not a difficult thing to fix on your Toyota Tundra. All you have to do is remove the light cover, pull out the burned-out light bulb and replace it with a new one.

Pull the brake light cover off the body of the Tundra. Place the screws in the brake light cover and set it on the bed of the truck.

Insert the new brake light bulb into the light fixture. Pump the Tundra's brakes to make sure the new bulb is working correctly.
Replace the brake light cover on the body of the Tundra and replace the screws.
