    Looks great. I was wondering....
    - did you go through TRS?
    - what type of halos did you get (CCFL or LED)
    - what sealer did you use?
    - what did it all run you? Can PM me the answer if you're more comfortable with that.

    I've had that idea of doing that with the amber halos. Love the look and it's legal to have on :D

    Yeah. Can't decide between amber or white halos.

    I'll change around what I said before. I would get amber halos and use them as blinkers. I wonder what that would be like. White looks nice too.

    Ya, bought from TRS on their black friday sale so I got %25 off
    cost me $270 for everything (think I saved about $90 for black friday sale)
    The halos are LED (less breakable for offroading)
    for sealing them I just left the existing stuff on there and added a bead of stuff that I bought from TRS (extra $10 plus is handy to have in the tool box for other projects)

    I think the Ambers are WAY better suited for toyotas seeing as they already have amber DRL's.... plus its different

    Very nice! Just finished my install but don't know where to put the ballast, can I get a picture? Plus where did you connect the halos for it to stay on like that? Pics would help. Thanks

    I can't really get pictures of the baslasts but on the drivers side i mounted it to the inner fender wall tucked in next to the battery and on the pass. side i mounted it next to the rad on that exposed piece of metal. I used factory holes for both and put a bead of silicone on each ballast to keep them from moving or vibrating
