    So I am about to start buying mods for my '11 Tacoma and was wanting opinions on these new headlights

    Option 1:
    http://www.andysautosport.com/toyota/2005_9999_tacoma/lights/headlights/anzo/anzo00166001.html

    Option 2:
    http://www.andysautosport.com/toyot...ghts/headlights/spyder_auto/spyd00110207.html

    Option 3:
    Open for suggestions (BHLM is not an option, my dad doesn't trust me enough :p)

    Also I want to get a new mesh grill and have the money for a grillcraft, but I heard somewhere that they don't make a mesh grill for the '11 yet. Any insight on this?

    P.S. Current mods are going to be supplemented with blacked out tail lights/badges/lower front valence.

    you have a 2011 right, so dont you have the smoked headlights already? i woudlnt buy either of the lights you listed, better off buying a used set here, do the BHLM on them, then sell your '11 lights

    Convince your dad the BHLM is cheaper than either of those options and if you mess up the BHLM you can just order the replacements. Also the housing say they fit 05-08 not sure if things changed past 08 for your 11...

    Would love to hear how they fit since I have a retro fit to start and I'm looking at options for head lights. Will stock tinted 11's fit an 06?

    I am under the assumption that 05-11 are all interchangeable. I sure hope so cuz the ones I ordered say 06-07 we shall see on Thursday.

    Finally convinced my Dad to let me do the BHLM so I might try that soon. Thanks for the advice.
