    I think people have been taking apart the headlamps and pulling the amber lens out.

    Try Sylvania Silver Stars. I think those are more of a white. I have them in my car, but the lenses are kinda yellowed so it's hard to tell. They did make the headlights brighter and less yellow-ish though!

    Bought mine (for the car) at Wal-Mart. Now sure if they have the size used by the truck. I know I had to get the fog's at Auto-zone.

    Try autozone.com, checkers, parts america, maybe summittracing or JCwhitney.

    Ok Thanks..

    I have another question I hope someone knows about it. When I am driving at night with lights on, all the people think that I have my High Lights on, and they always switch lights at me, I am thinking that this might be because of the 2.5" front coil spacers that I installed in my truck.

    Does someone knows how can I get my lights as they were before the lift???

    Did you put anything in the back for lift? Maybe the front is higher than the rear directing the beam upwards. I have a 3" lift, and 2" larger tires. Being 4" taller than stock I still do not get flashed. I would see if your truck sits level before messing with the lights. Other wise I believe you can aim them down. The dealer or another shop can do it, or you can do it. There's a wheel to turn, but I've never messed with it myself.

    What parts of the toytec 2.5" lift did you install? If you have a .5" top spacer you might be able to remove that to level the truck.

    That's probably the problem. You didn't get the AAL or block for the rear. Do you have the rear leaf TSB done? If so, you still need a 1" block I believe to level it with the 3" front spacers.

    Actually is just a litle bit higher in the front, because when you get it stock, the rear is always higher than the front, that is why I got the spacers and I like it how it looks like that is not a lot the difference between the front and the back.

    Then you could probably take out the .5" spacer from the front. You can adjust your headlights, but do you have fog lights? Because you can't adjust those and they will be angled slightly upwards towards peoples' faces too. It's better to level the truck, IMO.

    You can adjust the fogs, done it. I believe a 10mm socket (maybe 8mm) on the end of the gear-looking thingey. The gear-looking thingey looks just like the headlight adjustment thingey but the dished-out area is bigger, so you cannot just use a philips screwdriver, I even tried a #3 philips but the socket on the end of it worked.

    FYI, though, the fogs are H10 size and the heads are H4


    (I am pretty sure about that, anyone vouch for this? doing it from memory)

    Yep..............Those are correct.


    Not that I'm a grammer instructor or anything but what I think this dim bulb is asking for would be an HID set up. Could you just imagine how the people would be flashing him if he had 6K or 8K HID lamps in that truck?
