    OK i have been searching for like an hour and haven't came up with anything on this one. Want to know if on a 2010 tacoma anyone has done or heard of anyone trying the same style of bhlm where they put the head light in the oven and split it half on the tail lights?????

    Don't you want the sleepyheads and drunks to SEE you really well via the very safe lights you have? You guys risk your safety to look "cool" for a fleeting moment in daylight? Back in the old days we had clip-on smoke lenses we could remove at night. What ever happened to that? Sorry Craig it's just you have a beautiful new truck there for someone your age-why take chances with it?

    I searched today for this same thing. All i found was that it wont work as the tail lights arent glued together the same way the headlights are. Some guys have taken a dremel and cut of the tail light lenses, but its difficult to put them back together.

    No i havent tried, i read the right up on it but its a little too sketchy for me. I was scared enough when i did the BHLM. i dont have any money to buy new tail lights if i were to ruin mine. I actually just got done tinting mine, im still in the garage admiring my handiwork as we speak:D

    Yeah I haven't seen them around anymore-sad though, they made super nice custom fit ones and you paid a good price too. I had a set that fit right into the headlight caverns on my '86 Camaro-that thing looked mean too. They had them for the taillights too but I wanted people to SEE my lights as they told people what I was about to do. I think you should leave them alone. Not worth it IMO. Your truck is nice all on its own.

    AVS is the brand and there a velcro set up. you can remove the velcro and try and fab up some clips or something but the velcro is a good strong velcro.
