    I've been looking for these. I've seen them on a few Taco's, I realy like em. Can you tell me where I can get them, are they called Eagle Eyes? Also, what is your openion on dual pipe exhaust systems, like the Flowmaster 40 dual exhaust or Super 44's.

    Not sure about the lights but dual exhaust on a truck looks terrible IMO. Also Chokemaster sounds terrible and it is proven to rob power. In the end what you is up to you.

    ^this. Did mine a week ago and won't ever look back. Throwing some angry eyelids on in a few weeks and we'll see who looks meaner. Eagles can't beat tacos.

    I need the idea's and suggestions you are giving me. Where can I purchase the Angry Eyelids? What brand headlights do you suggest? And what exhaust has the lowest growl, something not to loud. I don't mind being slamed just keep on bringing it. I am learning.

    www.theretrofitsource.com (mini H1, mini D2S, FX-R) use stock headlights

    there's tons of exhaust but I vote MagnaFlow just because I've alwasys had good experiences with them

    I don't know where you can purchase "eyelids" but I find it to be a waste of time/money IMO so don't mind me. . .

    Search for Toyota man on here, he sells the eyelids. As far as the best brand of headlights, you've already got them. Toyota OEM. You won't get anything that fits and functions better than original. To get the lights like the ones mentioned on here it's a pretty simple retrofit into your stock lights. Plenty of write ups on how to do it. As far as exhaust, I'm not sure. But my cold air intake sounds pretty mean :) volant FTW!

    definately go with the retrofits. They have a great cutoff line at night and if you black them out they look sick, and they also look great with the angel eyes.
    Here's the link for the retrofits if you decide to research them.

    Good Luck buddy!

    I have dual 40's not visible but exiting under the rear seats of the quad cab. I've gotten a lot of compliments about the sound of them. Its hard to find a good sounding exhaust in a V6. I do a ton of off roading and have noticed gaines in torque. I think as long as you have a cold air intake, and not just upgrading exhaust you will see improvement.
