    Hey TacoWorld! I'm new here (Just bought my '19 TRD Sport a few weeks ago :dancingbacon:), and honestly this is my first time ever changing to performance headlights... So I'm looking for a little friendly guidance!

    That being said my first thought is to go for an H11 Halogen replacement bulb for the Low-Beams. Specifically the Sylvania Silverstar Ultras or the Philips DiamondVisions. Hoping to stick with the halogens to get that white-light look without blinding everybody and their mother on the road.

    The my hopes is to step-up my game on the High-Beams a notch, as I won't be using them unless I'm not presently giving a fu** about anyone or their mother anyway. I'm looking at some LED and HID Conversion Kits, mid range $$$ between $50-100.

    So first question, will I look ridiculous with Low-Halogens and High-HID's?

    And lastly, I know there's plenty out there but without any "words from our sponsors" so-to-speak can I please get some solid recommendations for a good solid conversion kits?

    Thanks in advance! Looking forward to riding with this pack from here on out :cheers:

    Love that thread. Been trying to get through it there’s just SO MUCH GOOD Stuff in it.

    Any opinion on whether it would be a good idea to have HID Highs and Halogen Lows?

    Don't get HID as highbeams, LED would work best because HID takes a bit to fully power up while LED will be instant light. Also our high beams sit in a reflector not projector so it will be fine. I am running the Hikari LED in my low and high beams and they have been great.

    I focused on the benefits of each type, and the lux output charts at distance. It clearly shows LED's aren't good at lighting at a distance, since the projector housings are specifically designed for halogens and not for LED's.
