    The Tacoma housing has shields on the regular housings... not on the fogs.
    Even with the shield, HIDs glare and blind the shit out of oncoming drivers.
    Please don't use them. The reflectors were not designed for the HID arc.

    yes they do have shield but those will do nothing for hids you need the ones that reflect light up into the housing . Ive been running my 55ws in square housings and you get a way better cutoff with them compared to the round ones, you can see on a wall that the cutoff is very good and does not blind people, the round ones have much more scatter

    That color change on bumps is also called flicker

    Yeah I had fxr's waay before they were popular.

    That band of light at the cutoff is called the colorband also.
