    Just wondering if there are any tutorials that can be found to install HIDs for 03 Tacomas. I'm about to buy a pair of headlights and I wanna know exactly what I'm doing before I buy them. Thanks a lot.

    Pretty straight forward. But if you have no experience with electrical wiring, I would recommend calling over that friend. There are diagrams that usually come with the kits.... or are you talking about the eBay projector headlights?

    they make wire harnesses that make the whole thing pnp. if you don't have any wiring skills, then you should consider this route
