    Can 2017 Taco headlights be adjusted? Asked dealership to check mine and adjust up to maximum legal limits because lo beams only project out about 50 yards. Already installed premium bulbs. Dealership service tech said the headlights cannot be adjusted. Is this true due to the lights being projector type or are the B S ing me? My 07 Taco even had better lo beam projection distance. Great forum with lots of savvy tech. Thank you in advance.

    There are knobs you can turn to adjust. It's very easy.

    A long Phillips screw driver from the top down is how you adjust them. I adjusted mine down after lifting and adding HID's.

    Thank you for the response. Sooooo the dealership passed me bad gouge - imagine that. I am thinking that dealerships have a machine or device to check your headlight aiming during state inspections to ensure the headlights are within legal limits to protect oncoming traffic etc.. Time to find a better dealership?? Is there a vertical measurement (inches up from driveway) for stock headlights that can be used to do it yourself using a wall or garage door for reference? Thanx again for the info. Appreciate the help.
