BHLM is black headlight mod. There are different post all over TW. Do a quick search and you will get different threads about this. There are some great write-ups, I am not on my own computer, so I have no bookmarks to help you. Post a picture of your truck.

Don't like the halo's myself. I'd go with the BHLM myself.

Your best, and cheapest bet, would be to do the BHLM. Havemt done mine yet but plan to do so in the near future. Looks pretty simple and should only cost a few bucks for the paint. Just do a search on here.

Be carefull where you by your headlights on E-Bay. I purchased a set of blacked out lights and now both have condensation issues. Im thinking of buying elsewhere and returning the leakers for a refund.
Was in the process of getting the passenger side replaced. They required a $50 deposit to exchange the defective one. Sent the money by Paypal and never received it...and now I noticed the driver side is full of moisture. Bought mine from Keon Performance(Lokatech) on Ebay. Hard to deal with on the phone...cant understand their language. Frustrating!!!

Do the Black Headlight Mod it really looks nice on the white Tacomas. There should be a diy BHLM on here somewhere Its looks pretty simple to do.

I did the BHLM and although I love the way it looks, I'd caution anyone considering this to be pretty ginger with taking the bulb out. I broke the clip off where the pin is and I've issues blinding people because I can't get them to adjust right now. It's a pretty easy mod, just be careful with the bulb. I'm sure everyone here is more technically inclined than I am though.

You're the first one we have ever heard about this happening.
