    i have the same thing on my truck for about 6 months now, havent really had any problems with them, they seem sealed pretty well. They will have to be adjusted when you get them, mine were pointing at the sky. Also the plastic pieces that hold the side marker lamp to the headlight housing itself is pretty fragile, i broke it off when replacing the light bulb, just be careful with the new plastic it tends to break easier. they fit like oem, give out good lighting considering my stocks were all fogged up...

    on that last picture my "fogs" are lit up because i switched them with the stock marker lamps, but you get the idea of how bright they are at night time

    A+ in every aspect but the corners. They look like crap, I just painted mine black and it looks great!

    This is what they look like out of the box

    Gotta agree that those are some nice looking lights. If I still had my '99 PreRunner, I'd put those babies on ASAP.

    Thanks, I just got it.. first weekend of owning it I had the bed liner sprayed and ordered the headlights.

    Wish it wasn't a photoshopped drop...but it'll be bagged eventually.

    Looks like there are quite a few styles and some projecter type.

    HERE is a search for them showing different styles.

    Anyone have the LED projector type? Can these be converted to HID and actually work correctly?

    My driver side is pointing way up. And I can't seem to adjust it. Got any tips on how to fix it?

    When I installed mine they were aligned. I assume the alignment would be identical to factory lights?

    Stuff that makes it easier to run over other stuff.
    These are the same headlights Sam wants to put on her truck. They look really good. We're probably going to smoke the turn signals.

    I've tried everything. Nothing will work it seems like. My mom is getting her Sequoia's oil changed at the dealership monday, so i will take it in and see what they can do.
