    So when I bought my Tacoma I traded in my Acura. I removed most of the aftermarket parts including my Eagle Eye HID lights which have served me faithfully for over 6 years. They cost a lot more than what HID lights go for today (almost four times that).

    I want to do something with them.

    So far I was thinking about finding some good looking housings and maybe installing them in the rear bumper and I could use a switch to activate them. I would only use them while off roading AND reversing of course. Seems like kind of a waste for HID's though.

    I also thought about replacing the fogs with the HID lights.

    They are 9006 style.

    Why not just buy different bulbs and put them in your headlights?

    The Tacoma uses a 9145 (H10) in the fogs. They are very similer in design to the 9006. You could probably make them work.:notsure:

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I'll try them in the fogs and see if they'll go there. Failing that I may see about replacement bulbs.

    I'll post back when I have had a chance to try them.
