No, I'll keep em.
Don't think I'll have time to help with the whole install. But it's pretty much straightforward.
I have the morimoto 35 ballast
The d2s 5000k, more pure white, 4300k is more light output, but not as white as the 5000k, it's what oem installs use. 6000k has a slight cool blue tint to it with less output than 5000k, but has a little more color. So 4300k is brightest, go lower kelvin for more yellow, higher for more blue then purple, but all those will put out less light. 5000k is a good compromise.
Relay is for the 9003/h4 bulb that your tacome comes with stock.
You'll need a Dremel to cut out the tab on the insisde of the alignment ring, or you can use a file.
Flat head screwdriver to remove the plastic pop rivets for grill, 10mm socket for under fender, lights, and grill removal. Philips head screwdriver for headlight trim removal and to open headlights up. Also there are two torx screw to remove on headlight.
There are grounding points behind both headlights for the ballasts, depending where you choose to mount them, you may need to extend the wires. I used a small section of 16ga and extended one ground. Somhoummay need a crimp/crimper, depending where/how you mount the ballasts. I just used double sided mounting tape, no brackets.
I'd also use painters tape (blue) to mask off the lights as to not scratch the housings while removing them, also taped the area around the lights as well.
I used channel lock pliers to tighten the rings and position the projector in the housing. To aim the projector after installation you need an 8mm to adjust the factory alignment screws behind the headlight. The top one is the horizontal adjustment, the bottom one is the vertical adjustment. I'd leave the horizontal alone at first, just adjust the vertical.
