    I’ve thought of that and think I may just try the rubber things on the stock h11s and see if that does something. I’ve heard of somebody getting some good results from going that.

    Yeah I think results vary from truck to truck. My buddy put in his XD kit on his tacoma and had barely any shake right off the bat, just got lucky I guess.

    If you are referring to the Morimotos you can see my review here:

    That is correct in terms of peak intensity. Note that a halogen projector is designed for up-light though, based on the halogen light source. Using an ultra bright HID like the Philips XD kit makes this up-light very bright as well, which isn't the kindest to oncoming drivers. You'll notice when you pull up next to a wall you have some bright light above the cut off.

    Those Alpharexs look nice, looking forward to seeing their taco HL's.
