    Leds are not for low or high beams. They are basically DRL's. Hids are very bright depending on the company you order from. Retrofitting some is projectors with an HID is the ultimate way to get but is fairly expensive and you would have to Build them yourself. But as far as plung and play the hid kit is great.

    There are no LED headlights on the market yet. At least none for tacomas, otherwise youd have to find a way to retro some Audi LED headlights onto the truck, and that would be $$$ / a whole lotta r&d

    Nope headlights. That looked smoked and had a led bar inside. Can't remember his name. All I can remember is he had an ARB bumper. He even gave a link
