Yes. Morimoto, Denso, Matsushita, anything OEM quality really. Chances are if you can buy it off ebay or for less than $75 it isn't gonna last you very long. Ballasts seem to be the first thing to go.

Low quality stuff man... I'm tellin ya. Please do yourself a favor and if you do decide to go with the ebay halos (I don't recommend, but to each his own) go and pick up some decent quality HIDs to put in them or else put in halogen lamps. Also, first thing I would do is take and run an extra bead of silicone around the outside edge. They are notorious for leaking.

Big Changes

Added a 3" Pro Comp suspension lift yesterday, and today I bought 285/75/16's BFG AT KO's with TKO wheels. So how long does it normally take for the front end to settle down? Currently it sits higher than the rear and all the components on the front suspension are maxed or close to maxed out. I love the overall look. Here a couple of pics. Now I'm awaiting a Volant CAI with scoop, and hopefully it'll be here next week. This is the first step to a totally blacked out Tacoma.

For bulbs Phillips are very good. You can't get Phillips Ballasts. For bulbs i personally recommend anything from Phillips or Osram. Beware of knock offs of both of these products.

Well that sucks! Back in April when he did the first of the twice yearly sales he is allowed to do, I contacted him and ordered the horns.

If you've shown interest I bet he put you on the list for the next sale...maybe...I hope....

Been awhile.

Installed:
Extra D rings in the bed. Picked up some Dodge Sprinter rings for this.

Tonneau cover Access Light Rider. Defiantly a 4 handed job when using regular allen wrenches!

Looking at some sliders next, and installing a new Sirrus/XM system in the dash.

I have both my panels off now due to a speaker install and like the grab handle mod. How did you do that? Is the handle removable?

I agree with you, I am sure he gets frustrated. Probably gets more pm's in a month, than the rest of us get in 3 years. And WOOT, mine was getting anodized, so hopefully my horns will be here soon!
