    I have a 2007 4x4 TRD DC and recently bought a pair of Lightforce HID 170 lights. I'm almost finished with the install except I now need to complete the following:

    "Using a multi-meter or test light find the active high beam switching wire located on the back of the head light. Connect the Ezy tap connector on the wire."

    There are 3 wires (pink, red & white) coming out of the headlight on the driver's side and I have no idea which one is the high beam wire. Anyone know which wire is the high beam? I figured someone has run across this already and save me a trip to the store for a light meter. Thanks!

    don't tap into the high-beam. if you do you will only be able to use your HIDs when the high-beam is on, which is stupid. tap into the green wire that runs to your corner running lights, that way as long as your running lights are on, you'll be able to turn on your HIDs

    Thanks for the suggestion CopDoctor! I must admit I wasn't thrilled with the idea of only running my HIDs with the bright lights but didn't want to F'up a new set of expensive HIDs. Electrical stuff is not my favorite so thanks for the help!

    Don't cut either wire! The same result can be achieved with an add a circuit to gain power from your under-hood fuse box (on the circuit of your choice). This also allows you to change your trigger wire circuit in under 10 seconds anytime you want, without cutting.
