    Hey,

    I am going to be retrofitting my 97 Tacoma 4WD 7x6 conversion headlights with HID projectors. Just wondering what you guys have done and what you recommend. I have already ordered my replacement housings that I am going to use for the retrofit and I am looking into either the FX-R or the Mini's, or do you recommend another? I know the FX-R will be a lot more work than the Mini's, but I am looking to get the best light output. What's your thoughts?

    Thanks

    According to the website they're plug and play the bulbs are included. Do you plan on upgrading the bulbs?
