    Hello :),
    I recently purchased some aftermarket headlights " . Longstory short they are leaking water from the top. I've gone through two sets. I really need some help finding some headlights with a good seal , preferably smoked ( have a blacked out 2004 Prerunner TRD) . Also I can not put back in the factory headlights because i have an aftermarket grill that doesn't have the splitter part for the headlights & turning signal ligghts. Thank you!

    Check out my build
    Throw them in the oven and pull the lenses off. Then when reattaching run a bead of Butyl sealant around the edges. They won't leak again and the sealant is fairly cheap. Just follow the write-ups for installing some hid projectors. They have the correct times/temps for pulling the lenses off. It's pretty easy.
