    i honestly rather buy something i dont have the time to take apart the headlights and make something fit. i use the truck everyday and dont have nothing else to drive while its sitting there taken apart. any other ideas or places to look

    yea from what i saw on the install pictures it looks like all u do is make a bigger hole in the housing and screw the projector in place cover it with a shroud and seal it back up and thats all thats to it

    the kit i am looking at is from the retrofitsource. which includes the projectors HID kit w/ ballasts the shrouds for the projectors and halo/angeleyes, and all the wires and install info. for around $350 which is a little more than i was expecting to pay but its cheaper than custom headlights

    I'm thinking about doing the same thing to my 03 taco. How did it go? Was it pretty easy to install? Did you go with new wiring and harness or did you retro fit a new headlight assembly?
