    95.5-97 use the sealed halogen beam headlights while the "newer" Tacos just used bulbs. To the OP, you can't just use HID bulbs to get HID, you'll need the whole kit which includes the ballasts, wiring harness etc. I would still try ebay as your best bet. Use the search terms "tacoma headlight" (without quotes) and you should see quite a few pages. You'll have to go through quite a few of them before you see some for your year. Good luck!

    you want quality HID kit.
    www.xenonpros.com
    McCulloh or Philips are top quality, get the H4 direct plug in play kit, use that or buy a fuse relay kit that will power ur HID's directly from your battery.
