For the warranty you can deal with me directly. Anything not working would be mailed to me, tested and then replaced under warranty. It's my brother's company and he has the connection with the supplier direct.

Thanks I am happy to hear good things . My brother specifically told me to keep the hookup on the down low and not mention the brand. I don't want to go behind my brothers back and loose my connections. I will post pictures of the factory and other stuff shortly though.

Yea the ballast is fully submerged in a fish take and I am not sure if the bulb is in there too or in front of it. I also have a pic somewhere with a bunch of ice in the tank to show under freezing conditions it works as well.

What do you estimate shipping to be for a total price?

I want a telescopic kit this time. Any discounts for a return customer?

Also interested here! However, no one mentioned in a previous response the difference between the telescopic ($100) and the other one ($78). What I do know is that Im looking for the 6000K light bulb but as far as the particular fixture to make it work is unknown to me. It sounds like the cheaper of the two aka the low beam doesn't have a high beam to it? And because of the name of the other hi/low beam it has both? The picture looks like they are two separate light fixtures for each beam. Is that right? Any clarification would be awesome.

Hey Anthony!
I see you can't get enough of my kits! Lol. The shipping will be a flat rate of $15.95 for each kit mailed out. As you know that includes all fees i.e. paypal fees, duty and tax on the kits when I receive them, etc.

So please nobody ask for local pickup if you live in CA because I can't do that.

Thanks!!
~Slim

You are right low beam is only the low's i.e fog lights or headlights that don't do both Hi/Lo like our tacoma's do both. So for you to keep the function of High Beams you are going to want to get the Bixenon kit. Here is a picture closeup of what the Bixenon looks like.

As mentioned in my signature 09/25/08 will be the latest I will accept payments on pending orders. Any new orders on that day will have to be paid instantly.

So I would say for anybody interested to get in before that day... if you must procrastinate place and pay your order on the 24th.

I personally like it when the members order before and pay before so that I can keep up with all the orders by the time I need to place the full order. That way I don't have 50 orders to be scrambling through on the final day and filling out my order list.

I'm trying to save money guys...thanks to the stock market...and here you are making me spend more money

I'm warming up to this and might just pull the trigger for one.

But do you guys know any bulb that I can replace the interior dome light (center light)? I can't see anything in the truck and I hate how slow it comes on...bother the heck out of me.

Nope... they run the same size bulb as the 05+ do. Unless they changed the bulb to something different that I don't know about... but in that case you can order that bulb size anyway. So regardless you will be ok!
