    I have been wondering that myself, I'm looking at getting some for my 06 short bed. I always see the ones on flea-bay but have been scared to pull the trigger on them, prices look fairly good though.

    Seems like Depo Headlights are the assemblies that a lot of users here go for if they don't want to pay the big bucks for Authentic Toyota Parts.

    3" lift? A.R.E cap 285/70/17 moto metal 955 17x9


    Looks like a good deal to me, and the 10yr warrantee should seal the deal.

    FYI: the non sport lights are even cheaper ?? (maybe)


    Have them thro a couple of cabin filters in the box, their only 10.34 apiece

    EVERYONE STOP!!!!!!!!!

    There is a TSB out for cracked inner lenses of our taco's headlights, i believe 05-11. if your inner bulb housing (the one for the DRL/blinker, the little bulb toward the center of the truck) is cracked you can get brand new OEM headlights from toyota. Mine had slight cracking and they didnt ask any questions, just swapped my headlights. Mine were also a little hazy but now my 05 has brand new lights! pretty awesome.

    Also, just to add to this, i bought some black/chrome OEM headlights off ebay because my truck had the chrome ones from the factory. They gave me new black/chrome headlights.

    Thank you guys! I had ordered some Depos because my headlights were cracking from the outside. Today I noticed a slight burnt and crack where the daylight running light is located and I will take it to the stealearship first thing in the morning hoping to get new OEM headlights...
