    Hey I was looking at getting some new headlights for my 02 Tacoma and came across these on ebay. I have the Imperial Jade Mica color (green) and was wondering if it would look good on it. If anyone has pictures, please post them!

    I have a minor problem with condensation getting in the corner lights and the directionals. im sure i can fix it with a nice bead of seal. as far as headlights, they are awesome.

    I didnt get them from ebay. i got them years ago. but they sure do look similar

    well my corner lense have condensation now, and the headlights are scuffed, so that's why i'm looking. they're on ebay for $99 plus $35 for shipping. that seems like a decent deal don't you think?

    problem...
    the trim around the corner lights is NOT chrome. so it wouldn't match my grill. I don't think that would look good.

    Haha! I don't think I'm gong to paint my grill. I thought about going the redneck way, but I don't know if it will stick or not.

    dont you the redneck stuff it always looks like shit. see if you can pull apart your housings and paint the insides black and just get some clear corner markers and smoke them out a bit and it should give you a similar look.:D

    No offense, but that's just as much redneck as what he suggested!

    no its not. redneck is using crome in a can. it would look alot better if he took the time to remove and open up the housings. then care fully mark sand and paint the things. but hey everyone has their opinion.
