    Nobody recommends either. If you want some anyway, go on alibaba and buy them for $12.99 like every LED “brand” does before they resell them for $150.

    Quite a few things at this point..
    I REALLY wanna get some of the Morimoto XBs. They're under $1k right now and it's killing me not buying them so cheap.

    I would only consider installing the 2020 Tacoma LED headlamp assembly on mine. Factory tends to be best and it will be DOT legal.

    The factory assembly isn't designed for LED bulbs. They are designed for Halogen bulbs.

    Also the housing is designed around the LED bulb.

    I have been using Hikari Ultra led lights for over a month on city streets and highways and never once has anyone flashed their lights. The light is bright and I can see the entire road and shoulder. I am very happy with the product, with my 60 year old eyes halogen lights are just not bright enough. If led lights are blinding people and I agree that some are because I have experienced it but why has no one flashed their lights at me in almost 2 months of nightly driving. I work the late shift so I use my lights almost everyday.

    Why would I complain. She's happy. I get to watch the game. Seems like a win win to me!
