    If 35 watt, they may be too blue to be useful driving... unless the 'cool' street racer look is what you seek? If 55 watt HIDs, they say it washes out the blue more.

    35 watts is plenty for HIDs, as they put out nearly 3 times the light of higher wattage halogens... but 4300-5000ºK is the most light output (true white).

    They don't say anywhere, but 35 watt is standard... 55 watt is an upgrade and recommended only for off road use... Naturally, these are illegal even at 35 watts. You do realize you are only getting low beams as the high beam half of this projector is blank with only the LED halo ring lit around it...?

    PS, I hope someone else chimes in who has done the projector or can recommend one to you if not the eBay one you posted... Thank you for keeping America safe!

    I've got 6000k hids and there is barely a hint of blue in them. Mostly white and made a world of difference at night. I got mine from slimcubby though.

    There is a 'Bi-Xenon' bulb that has a moving reflector so the beam changes from low to high with the one bulb (provided it is in a one bulb style lamp with the high and low lens patterns). HID puts out so much light, the low alone may be enough for all your driving needs.

    well i already have bright bulbs, cant remember what ones they are but i think they are the blue halogen bulbs. i want to upgrade the looks of my truck and i like halo's a lot so i figured id look into them. i was originally going to go for the bhlm's but i didnt think it was a bad idea to look into the halo's

    Does anybody make non halo projectors for first gen tacos? I just ordered 6000k 35w ddm's and have some aftermarket regular style headlights and am looking at my options for projectors if I end up feeling like they scatter too much.
