    So I have some pretty bad hazing on my 06 tacoma headlights i also have a running light out and a blinker out.

    So I can replace the bulbs for pretty cheap and deal with the hazing or I can get black headlights which ive wanted since I got the truck. It has just the standard lights (non leds) and I'm wondering if these http://www.amazon.com/Spyder-Auto-Toyota-Projector-Headlight/dp/B004W4OOZW are any good... 250 is the max I'm looking to spend so any other suggestions would be well appreciated.

    I know little about lighting so are those plug and play?

    Do I have to change any wiring from the old lights?

    I have decent knowledge about wiring houses and such but not so much trucks but I could figure that out.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    for LED's stay away from lifetime led and brite ass led's. Lifetime LED's are shit and guys are right now trying to get ahold of brite ass led for replacements but it seems they have dissapeared.

    I've heard from the grape vine that Spyder is not a good brand. cheap plastic. you could be dealing with hazing in a years time. If I were you I would just buy some OEM headlights off ebay. Tear them apart, Paint the bezel how you want, add projectors from Retrofit Source and DIY. Just watch plenty of youtube videos and you'll be fine. Might have to get handy with a dremel but doubt it.
