    SOLD!!

    Going to be redoing my retro to include leveling motors and incorporating my favorite shrouds, so these are up for grabs!

    Includes the entire nearly new OEM toyota headlight assemblys retorfited w/ acura TL bi-xenon OEM projectors with clear lenses and the highly desired clear blinker lenses! no fogging or leaks through several rains here in socal!

    To run these headlights, you would still need HID ballats, D2S HID bulbs and a wiring harness.

    Again, HID bulbs, ballasts or silverstar blinker bulbs are NOT included, but denso slim (toyota OEM) ballasts and used phillips 85122 (OEM in many cars) D2S bulbs can be added for an additional $150 if needed. bi-xenon H4 wiring harness can be had at theretrofitsource.com for $30 plus shipping.

    Price: $650 shipped to your door in the lower 48. No "dibs" here, whoever pays first gets them!!


    here are the pics...

    OEM output..

    HID output...

    both (the only thing that is not nearly perfect w/ this retro is the cutoff between the two lights. you can see how the driver is slightly rotated, but you cannot tell when driving down the road...but wanted to be upfront w/ everyone!)

    you will have to do a slight mod on the back to seal these up. i'll included the everything needed and can provide installation help as well.

    thats a lotta dough. just gunna build my own retrofits. tacomas have big reflector lenses making mounting of the projectors easier than compact designs. you wont regret the learning experience either. just take your time...

    yep, that includes the headlights, projectors w/ clear lenses, vacuum formed shroud, clear blinker lenses and the labor and love that went into them....start pricing the above out and you'll realize this is a great deal...

    well, it will run you at least ~$225 for just the TLs w/ clear lenses and you would have to find a set of clear blinker lenses, then vacuum form the shrouds, plus provide the OEM headlight assemblies...its all starts to add up if you think about it...

    no worries, not all people do! some think that their $70 PNP kit will get the same output...WRONG!! all parts used in this retro were OEM!

    This is a great deal! Just like Yosh stated, start piecing everything together to do a retrofit from scratch and the $650 price looks better and better. Especially since he used the TL projectors which are pricey due to their quality construction and excellent light output. Add in the time and craftsmanship he put into these lights and you are well above $650.

    Yosh is also very helpful. I am in the middle of my own retrofit and have PM'ed or emailed him numerous times with questions. He has replied with great advice and suggestions each time.

    Bump for a great price. Making a set of retro headlights adds up quicker than you think, and then you have to figure some for the labor. Trust me the quality of work is there and you won't be disappointed. I saw these in person and they look amazing. The work yosh put in on my set is impeccable, and I've had no problems through the rain we have been getting this week either. He also hooked me up and ran all the wires and mounted the ballasts, so if you're local take advantage of that offer.

    You won't see many other vacuum formed retro's running on Tacoma's either.​

    If I had the cash I'd pick these up, $650 seems like a deal to me. Dont forget you can sell your stocks to cover some of the cost.
