DDM has hi/low HID lights.

Thought the 08 Tacoma used H4/HB2/9003?

Couldn't say if the eBay housing would provide better light than stock. The DDM kit would defiantly be brighter then both.

I was just on the DDM site. I don't see a HI Hi/Low kit in the "Bulb Type" drop down menu.

903/HB2

I am basically looking for advice on whether to go with the DDM HID, something from ebay (ones i posted or if you have a better idea), or anything else that. First time looking into/ shopping for headlights.

The OP wants to use an aftermarket headlight housing that requires a H1 bulb.

Ok my bad. Ebay said that fits a 08 tacoma, so I assumed the bulb was correct

No worries man. HID's are the way to go. if you are going to buy the aftermarket eBay housing, you will still need to buy an HID kit to fit the aftermarket housing.

idk if your question was answered but they are the same, i think most companies go by the h4 but h4 hb2 and 9003 all work.

i have the ddm tuning 6000k 55w and they are great i love them, you just need to make sure you aim them right or you WILL blind people. I would recommend the 35w as well though. I dont need 55w but the rest were on back order when i got mine and i didnt want to wait

Just for information:

I have the DDM hi/lo bulbs and ballasts, as well as the fog lights on my truck (all 35W). They are extremely bright and WAY better visibility than stock, HOWEVER I had both ballasts for my headlights fail on me (verified by changing the ground, and switching in alternative ballasts). I haven't tried returning them to DDM yet, so I can't comment on customer service.

I have 4 sets of DDM HIDS i only have had 1 ballast go bad. So they are good stuff. there customer service is iffy but there products are good. I had water get into the relay for the hi/lo and had to change that out. But besides that, there are good kits.

DDM hid kits are the least expensive.
-If you want to use the stock headlight housing you would use the 9003/HB2/H4 Hi/Lo bulb type. I have the 35w DDM Hi/Lo kit.

-If you go with the aftermarket ebay projector headlight housings then you would need a H1 hid kit for the low beam AND a separate H1 hid kit for the high beam since it is two seperate bulbs in one housing, not a Hi/Lo in one bulb like our stock headlights.

H4/HB2/9003 all fit in the same housing and have the same connector. Virtually all the same exact bulb.

-also I have four sets of DDM hids. 8 lights total, not a problem with any of them, *knock on wood*, yet.
