Tacoma Headlights

I got my tacoma a few months ago. I do alot of night driving, and I've noticed that a good number of people will flash their brights at me and I don't even have mine on, so I flash them back....real good. I was just wondering if anyone else's headlights might shine a little high. It just irritates me when someone flashes their brights at me and I don't even have mine on. Idk, its just one of my things.

Huh? Yes you can. The heads can be adjusted up/down and side/side, the fogs just up/down

Do you regularly haul a bunch of stuff in your bed? If so, this could be one reason. When the ass end gets heavy the nose end points upward more and throws off the headlight aim. I've been blinded by a Tacoma in the middle of the day because of this.

lol... yeah definately! well, i've gotten flashed my fair share of times too. since i added another 1" block to the rear of mine it seems to have lessened. its just the fact that the truck sits so ass high stock, and when you level it, or haul stuff it points the lights right in the face of oncoming....... kinda weird but i've accidentally forgotten to turn off my brights a few times, but only got flashed by another truck one time i left them on. all of the cars didnt seem to notice.
hmm. maybe this is a cure....lol jk

I've noticed it a lot. I feel it is our duty as Tacoma Owners to show driver's who flash us what our "REAL" brights look like. So I always keep one hand free by the brights switch. Ohhh..the sheer bliss. It's the small pleasures in life no?

I too used to get the flash often. I thought maybe it was because i would drive with my fogs on but that didn't make sense. I just give them a flash back and continue on.

I get it a lot in my PreRunner with the driving lights on. Guess its because the truck sits up higher

There ye go, turns your high beams on so the light, just go over all the heads of people in cars, ur screwed if ur drinving a truck. But yeh i get the same deal with ppl flashin there beams off, scared the heck outta one person when i through the highs on though, watched them almost go in a ditch, so I avoid that now in case some veers towards me instead of away! But its great for those jerks that never turn their highs off!
