    Why don't you retro your headlights? Black them all out and install projectors :thumbsup:

    Unless your OEM ones are beat up just do the black headlight mod on yours and save a few bucks.
    Or get a set of aftermarket Depo or TYC brand (+-$50 each on Amazon) and get in on the next retrofit groupbuy and put projectors in them. <-- this is what I am getting ready to do this weekend :)

    You got a white Tacoma........good color choice girl :D

    Watch out for EBAY headlights if you go that route. I bought all clear ones and loved the look but they fogged. I "fixed" them and put them in 4 different times and they still fog.

    Do the Black Headlight Mod if you have the time...it'll save you some $$$$



    My EBAY headlights that fog up......

    Those ones you are talking about....I almost went with those. I saw them on another truck on here and didn't think they looked quite right. But...you might think it does so i'll try to find the pic.

    Thank you :D

    I love my Fabtech lift. The lift you wanna go with is perfect. I want new springs, shocks n spindles but it'll have to wait a bit.

    Bday twins huh? NICE!!!!!! ;)

    I want the Halos real bad so I'm with ya. I just want the crystal clear look.

    I want the ones off Oracles website but they are hella spendy. I got my LED scanner that's in my hoodscoop from them and they are kickass people with a kickass company.

    Maybe with tax return :confused::D
