    Don't know much about these so I'm asking you guys if you can help me out. I have a 1st Gen and was wondering if these HID should fit in my truck. I have a 99 if that matters. Also, what's the difference between the H4 and H7? Thanks in advance.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    8000K is too blue IMO.
    Check out DDM for cheap kits.
    As for H4 vs H7- those are the bulb type. Make sure you look up your headlight bulb type, then order a Bixenenon HID kit in that bulb type, of the desired color temperature. I like 5000-6000K personally.

    I see. Well, what would I need to make it all work? Obviously the bulb, would I need the harness or is that included? Do I need the eliminator too? Thanks again, you guys are the bomb.

    probably not the eliminator but i'd get the harness

    to make an HID setup work you need bulbs, ballasts, and some sort of relay/harness kit to power the ballasts which power the bulbs

    for my 02 I used a 35watt H4 bulb for my headlights and the fog lights use a H10. I got it all from DDM. i have the 5000k which is pure white. you wont need that eliminator thing but you will need the whole kit that has the bulbs, ballasts, and wire harness.
