    Hey guys, I want to get some HID lights for my 2001 D/C tacoma. What all do I need and any suggestions on which ones. Rather have smoked out lights.

    Thanks,

    You need an hid kit made for 9003/H4 type bulbs. Smoked? By that you mean the headlight itself? That you can do as a DIY or buy from eBay then just put the hid kit into play.

    I got some from HIDextra.com over black friday..they didnt cost that much. I know it doesnt have as good of reviews of DDTuning, but I like mine and for the money you cant complain.

    I would agree with ORIEO, now that I have done the PNP, I really want to but the rest of the kit from theretrofitsource.com and have the complete look.

    But either way you go, you wont be disappointed.
