    So I bought some black headlights a while back and I finally got around to swapping out the crappy bulbs that came with them. Well as I'm sure you know Toyota put a torture contramption in for the headlamps. Well with the stock headlight assymbly they are easy to swap out. But with the headlights I bought they were tougher for some reason, but I got them out. But the tricky part was putting them back in and when I did the hook holding the clamp in on my right headlight BROKE!!!! So needless to say I was thankful I saved my stock headlights. But now I'm stuck rolling stock once again till I can convince the wife to let me buy another set, maybe angel eyes?!??!!? LOL One can dream. Just wanted to share my frustration with all of y'all. And maybe y'all will have some ideas on what I should do next for my headlight problem............

    Sorry to hear that man. You should get a nice set of Halos or keep the stock lights, do the black headlight mod and throw HID bulbs in :cool:
