Installing HIDs

I've ordered an HID kit and was wondering if anyone has installed one on their 2nd gen. I've got a 2012 Trd sport, and I don't care that I should buy projectors or any of that crap just tell me how to install them, thanks

I have the hi/lo in my 09. Pretty much just swap the bulbs, mount the ballasts somewhere, and zip tie the wires out of the way. Not much to it.

Yep. Pretty straightforward. Mount ballast. Install bulbs. Make it all neat. You'll be blinding people in no time.
