    HVM C/F X-Runner badge 1 of 6 made,P/C'ed black rims,Blacked out Billet Grill,BLHM,HID's,Tinted tail covers, Fog light mod,BFLM,C2C Black eyelids,,C2C 1.75" Front drop 2" rear,C2C Hoodstruts,URD Shortshifter,URD T-CAI.Custom Coupe shiftball, NST Manifold Spacer.. 07 TRD Sport Super White,De-badged,White headlight Mod,Fog light mod,White tail light mod,C2C white eyelids, C2C hood struts

    I guess it depends where you live, ive been pulled over a couple times for the tails i just got out and pulled the covers off and the officer said "see you later" no ticket..

    But to target peeps with HID's and tinted tails is just BS, about 5 my friends in town are cops they would just tell you to chill on that stuff, worry about the important things

    Installing HID's in a vehicle that did not originally come with them is illegal. That being said, if the kit replaces both the light and the lens with a correctly shaped projection lens they probably aren't any more dangerous. That is, if they are also pointed correctly.

    I thought about getting some since I do a fair bit of night driving, but I have personally chosen to use only 100% legal parts on my truck. In the end though. It's up to you.

    Now, back to the actual discussion.


    I think the color matched headlights look awesome. No mater if they are blue, white, or black. It gives the whole truck a more cohesive look IMO.
