    So a couple weeks ago I was scanning some random threads about headlights and retrofits and projects, and I came across a new aftermarket headlight for the tacoma

    They were black/smoked, had a projector headlight, and had a square halo lighting to it, I can't seem to find them again (I know they aren't the prettiest but I still wanna take a look at them)

    Does anyone know the link to where they can be found or what the brand is?

    I'm sure you know but just be weary of aftermarket lights cause they tend to leak so if you do end up getting some just make sure to reseal them to play it safe.

    Yeah I know, they're horrible sometimes. I was just looking at them, and see how they look

    But if I do anything it'll be a BHLM, or get a set from someone here

    It's a couple weeks after I bought them. I think they look great and get compliments on them frequently. Matter of taste I guess.:D

    Well, I'm glad you found something you like, and yes I suppose it is a matter of taste or at least preference. We all have different ideas of how we want our own trucks to look. I'm sure there are some out there that hate what I've done with mine, but I like it and that's all that really matters! :D

    One of my latest pictures...

    Absolutely. I like it it looks like lava is inside your truck. Very aggressive. Im thinking about doing BHLM on my factory lights before resale? Should be able to get a few more bucks outta them that way. Thoughts?

    It may be a dangerous road because if you damage them or they don't ssal they're not gonna be easy to sell

    And depending on the price, I might buy em, so you can save shipping and so I can have a set for retrofits later on. I'd rather not do retros on my BHLM headlights, cause I don't like the idea of opening them more than once, ya know?

    Thanks, I really wasn't trying to threadjack. oops.:rolleyes:

    As far as the headlights, just sell them as they are. That way whoever buys them can customize them however they want. I bought a pair of stock headlights from a member on here so I could mod them and simply swap them out. I'm sure there are plenty of people on here that would want to do the same.

    Sounds good to me. I will let you know when I decide on a price. They only have 5000 miles on them so they are like new. Did you do the grill yourself? Tell me about it.
