    Lots of threads on this, but since suppliers change over time and TW members gain longer term experience with various models as they age, I thought I'd ask for current information.

    My headlights are starting to get hazy (2nd set OEM). I was considering going aftermarket this time. Posts on TW seem to indicate that Depo sells the highest quality aftermarket headlights.

    I was looking at these Depo units on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Depo-312-1186P-US2-Toyota-Tacoma-Headlight/dp/B005XRPNYI

    Anybody have experience with these (post pics!).

    Others I should look at (post pics!)?

    Is the light pattern with aftermarket units as tight as OEM?
