Is there an HID kit that has no issues?

    Yes, all of the Xtreme HID kits come with 2 relay harness.

    We're thinking it's a headlight issue as well at this point on certain models based on the various steps we've taken to fix the issue but none have worked.

    OP sorry, not to jack the thread but has anyone tried combination of HID for Low and LED for Hi?
    HID as low cost and higher output, and LED as very fast light...

    I got that exact setup. XD 4300k Philips in Low and their LED's for hi beam. Hi beam slightly whiter, but don't really care.
    Love the setup and have the same on my Highlander.

    I have no more bounce than what I had with stock. It’s almost imperceivable. I have a TRD Pro, so my ride is a bit different than stock (no need for the sarcastic remarks, I know there’s a difference as I had a stock Tacoma). Some could be more sensitive to the issue though, so I think it’s subjective. I wish there was a viable solution for my Tundra. This kit was a game changer. I actually enjoy driving at night now.

    Thanks! Id love to buy what everyone is buying but because of the shipping cost, I want to source them locally. (I live in Japan)
    However some have problems with clearance behind the bulbs. Not sure which one to get...

    I have the 5500k 35w Morimoto HID Elite kit from TRS and although there is a slight "bounce" when hitting large bumps it isn't all that noticeable. Definitely going to swap for the 4500k bulbs though.

    Just wondering why you are switching to the 4500k? I recently ordered the same kit with the 5500k bulbs after going back and forth between them and the 4500k.

    The 5500k bulbs aren't pure white like I would prefer - have a slight tint of blue on the outer parts of the beam and don't match the Morimoto XBLED fogs as well as I would like (probably shouldve gone with the 55w ballasts). It's just me being extremely picky with my lighting setup.

    Yeah I gotcha, so other than that they light the road pretty well? I currently have a set of LEDs and they just aren't cutting it.

    Yes the light output is far better than LEDs. I had a pair of Auxbeam LEDs in my headlights before I switched to HIDs and couldnt be happier.

    Awesome, hopefully mine will be here in the next few days so I'll be able to see again at night.

    Have had my Morimoto 5500k HID kit from TRS in for about a year now and while the light output is great, the bounce has progressively gotten worse. This was after the supposed "upgraded o-rings". Some people might not be bothered by it but I am.

    Despite the parts being well made and the presentation/packaging being top notch, I'm not sure I can recommend them. There's been almost zero support from the seller or manufacturer on this issue, so don't expect it to be fixed. They're blaming it on Toyota.

    Buy a different kit and let us know if it fixes the issue. Multiple people in your same boat have done so and had bounce with the new kits as well...this is pretty good supporting evidence for TRS's claim that the issue is not with their product. I'm not really trying to defend TRS because I too am in the same boat - have morimoto's that bounce and are getting worse but from what I've gathered swapping kits isn't the answer and by extension it's not TRS's fault.

    My DDM ultra bulbs bounce a little bit as well but not enough to bother me. I just ordered some XenonDepot 5000k bulbs though to replace my DDM ultra 4500k bulbs. I prefer a bit more crisp white but don’t want the slight bluish tint I’ve seen on the Morimoto 5500k. We’ll see..

    Yeah not sure which thread but i have posted my experience with my bike.
    I had HID and the HID most likely interfered with sparks.
