    Alright guys I need some help I have an 07 Taco and I have the chrome headlights I work at a 4WD shop and we are constantly working on taco's in and out of my shop with accessories and caps. NOW here is my question I'm seeing them come in now seems like 09 and up have like a black chrome headlight. I ask the customers if they want to trade and no luck yet. I seem to be seeing it on the darker colored ones. Any idea where I can find a set of these bad boys. I like the stock headlights I just want the black chrome look

    they are on buy/sell/trade all the time, make sure they are the oem black/smoked headlights found on trd's (like lurkin said) NOT oem headlights that people have done the black head light mod (bhlm)

    Huh?

    I haven't seen any TRD Sport or OR models come factory with the black headlights.

    I have an '09 TRD sport and it doesn't have it and wasn't an option AFAIK.

    I see ebay ones a lot, in different styles.
    I also see OEM ones that have been disassembled and blacked.

    Choose which you like best.

    wat?
    the 09-11 TRD and xrunner lights were "smoked", not black. If you got your TRD sport first hand (ie no one else had them and changed them), your lights will have a smoked chrome instead of the blingy chrome on the rest. i had the smoked headlights on my 09 sport as well.

    call it whatever you want, the smoked headlights are nowhere close to being black or dark in any way. that's why they are called smoked. they have a hint of darkness over the standard chrome.

    the OEMs are not blacked chrome, they are "smoked". the ebay link you posted are not black chrome headlights either. they're simply black ("painted") plastic.

    smoked stockers or BHLM

    Yeah looking close the surrounds are smoked a little. I had assumed they were the regular chrome ones heh.

    They look just like the pics above after all, the slightly smoked ones.
    I don't have any pictures and and stuck at work so can't help right now.
    It's the same though after all.
