    I'm want to switch from the sealed beam light to the H4 style or the one's that require bulbs. The question is will this new assembly work with the factory grill?

    Probably not, the grills are much different in the years 1998-2004 and would not accept the different style light.
    Hope this helps,

    There are several manufactures that sell H4 conversion headlight assemblies.

    I have Rampage on my truck right now (with a 97 grille). Vision X also makes a set.

    Not true, there are plenty of options out there for h4 5x7 (might be 6x7 cant remember) replacement lights that come on the 1995-1997 Tacoma's

    super quick Amazon search came up with these: look around there are options
