Question Can't see well at night

I've noticed that the headlights on my "new" 2002 seem kinda dim. Hard to see under normal conditions and forget it when it rains. The headlight lenses are fogged a little and I bought a Turtle Wax lens cleaner kit to try 1st. I would expect that would help some, but I'm guessing not enough. I don't know whether I can just get better "bulbs" or need to try something else.

Also, I'd like to install some fog lights and like the "built in" look. What are my options? I've got a 2002 SR5 4X4 Ext cab.

Thanks!!

Not so much yellow as a little hazy. I actually got the lense cleaner kit for my son's '98 Maxima and my daughter's '01 Altima.

Yeah, the first gens get hazy after a while. If you can't get it out with the kit it may be time for some new ones.

x2. The HIDS really light up the road well. I love being able to CLEARLY see everything. You can get a set for less than $100 shipped from DDM Tuning with lifetime warranty

As for fog lights theres a thread on TTORA where someone added hella 550 fogs where your blinkers are on the bumper, and he rewired the blinkers to the corner lamps.

Yes, check here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/gro...2-15-09-a.html

Bi-Xenon H4 is what you'd need for the lights, H10 for the fogs (non-bixenon)
