    Hey Fellas Im new here and wanted to share some pics of a kit I have been working on for the last month and just completed install on a test truck this weekend. The kit is totally plug and play and requires the same steps as the black headlight mod. Cutoff is amazing and it is a complete hi/lo plug and play kit. I think they turned out awesome and am interested to get feedback so that I can possible bring these to Tacoma owners everywhere...thanks fellas!

    Hi X-Travagant
    Where did you buy the parts to make it?
    If I pay you, will you make one set for me?
    I have the HID Hi/Lo already.

    I don't, by the time they send me a PM< I already install the HID Hi/Lo and the HID fog light, so I do not want to spend any more $$$ .

    The group buy just ended on the other forum, the original truck has had no issues with the kit and has been running for 2 months. The parts are from kits I sell and have been tested for over a year. If you guys are interested I can do a group buy for this board sometime near Thanksgiving due to needing to fullfill the needs of the first group buy. PM me with question but fastest response time will be to email me directly at jason@luminoussolutions.us.

    I apologize if I missed anyone previously as I'm not on this board alot....let me know if there is interest.

    Just so you know I also have affordable kits that are manufactured in germany and also carry Philips HID kits if you are looking for the best on the market at thebest price:popcorn:

    When it come to HIDs you get what you pay for just like anything else in this crazy world.

    The projector kit that I have is a happy medium between a full retro and a reg HID kit. The projectors are fully adjustable with the stock headlight adjustments. The only negative aspect is that the kit uses a different bulb and not H4 and due to warranty issues the kit comes as a a kit with new ballasts and such. So if you have a HID kit already its basically not going to save you any.
