    Got them from my local custom LED shop but the ring size is what matters. For instance, there might not be a tacoma kit but if there is a kit for the Tundras or a similar style headlight it would probably fit the 05-11 headlight style. I can get you the exact size you need as I have done a 2011 but dont remember what size at the moment.

    It definetly looks much cleaner with the black IMO because I looked at it with both white and black. I'll post some pics up of it tomorrow from start to finish so yall can see it all

    The video of mine should be posted here in the next day or two but just for an idea these are the same as the ones I have installed the same way just on a camaro and with 6 halos instead of 4

    Do you know if those CCFL halos will come out? If so then you simply could replace it with an Oracle halo. Im not sure how those aftermarket headlights work but if the halo is independently wired and can be turned off but not removed the only other option would be to epoxy the new halo on top of the old one(probably should paint the old halo black) and go from there. That halo shouldnt be any larger than the ones I have in my fogs and im sure there is a size that will fit on the old CCFL. In my honest opinion a large halo like the one I have would look tacky in that headlight because of allthe accents but if you were to completely black it out it might not look bad and you could mount it something like this. (Not with tape of course but epoxy)

    i would just try and get in there are swap the existing halo's for the color ones. and maybe color swap on the led's that go down the side. not totally sure yet though but nothing like the big one you used. that would look too out of place
