Installing fog lights, headlights and tail lights soon

Hey, I installed fog lights on my tacoma! I didnt realize that it was already pre wired from the factory so all I had to do was install the lights, the switch and the relay. That saved me some time and they look awesome!!

Yesterday, I changed my taillights too. They look awesome compared to the stock ones. Now Im not sure what to do with the headlights. Should I install HID headlights or go with a regular blacked out headlight?? I have the HID ones at my house but Im not sure if I wanna install them or get different ones.

Let me know what yall think pls
Thank You

Here are some pics:
1 - tail lights
2 - fog lights installed(was too bright on iphone when i turned them on)
3 - my truck
4 - fog light on
5 - The headlight I have sitting in my garage-should i install it or get something more similar to the link below:

No, just the grill so you can get your hands in there. You can actually just pop them out from the front. You gotta be carefully that you don't scratch the paint though. I took the grill off because I thought I had to wire them too but It turns out that they are prewired. All I needed was the lights, switch and relay.

Hey do I installed the lights and now the wiring too. What ya guys think?? I can also rewire it so that the halos and the LEDs stay on as daytime running lights and for the signal. That would leave the regular bulb and the bar above it on when I activate the headlights.

Any opinions, ideas, suggestions??? Please lemme know what ya think?

fog light install

I have fog lights and I put them in and have installed the lights, connected the wires in the engine compartment and ran one wire through the firewall. Connected it to the switch grounded the switch and I have one more wire that has to be spliced into the Low Beams wire

can anyone out there drop a quick note to help me identify which wire near the steering column is the low Beam wire?

got a 2011 SR5 4cyl manual shift
