    I want to put some clear headlights on my Tacoma. The stock ones are yellow and ugly lol. I was looking at these. Anybody using these? Pictures of them on your truck?

    I have the same one but the reflectors and housings are tinted black. Looks a lot better than pure Chrome IMO, but it's really up to you.

    I like the chrome. these are commonly used for doing a retrofit

    What year is your truck? Under your name says 2002, these lights fit 97-2000.

    Do you have a picture? I have a black truck w/blacked out grill and wonder how they would look on it.

    (Sorry OP for the side track...and I guess I need the '01-'04 version also)

    Just be sure to keep your old housings.

    I ordered some a couple months ago, the pivot points were really lose. I had to use some of the old headlight hardware to stop the new ones from wiggling.

    That was the only issue I had.
