    Ok. Im Kevin and I have a 1999 Tacoma PreRunner 3.4L V6 TRD OffRoad Package. Here is what it looks like.

    The day that i brought it home sometime in May of 09'. It had 140k miles on it but it was in great condition.
    [​IMG]

    I then put in a system and tinted the windows. 5% on the rears and 40% on the fronts
    Pioneer sub, Pioneer deck, Pioneer 4-way speakers in all four spots.

    I then got a Magellan RoadMate GPS, a Magnaflow exhaust, and a CB radio.

    GPS
    [​IMG]

    5 x 8 x 14 Magnaflow Exhaust(its just clamped on for now until i weld it on)
    [​IMG]




    Then i Put on the antenna and PA speaker for the CB. I also got new taillights and i installed spidertrax 1.5" spacers

    Cobra CB

    I also painted my center caps black and i tinted the orange part of my headlight corners and my turn signals.

    Center caps(came out better than i thought)

    Tinted headlights and turn signals

    I then put on Hella 500FF fog lights behind the Grille. I also put fog lights in the bumper(not pictured)

    HIDs 5000k

    Finally got to put on the 5100's

    Set at highest setting


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Painted some 2nd gen badges i got from another user.

    I know this isnt how they go, but i wanted them this way.
    [​IMG]

    I had an extra "Toyota" so i put it here
    [​IMG]

    After minutes of debating i painted my grille black. Also took the hellas out from behind the grill. I could never aim them properly because there wasn't enough room

    [​IMG]


    As it sits right now with a 2" AAL and billies at 2.5". I got tired of the CB antenna, so i took it off.
    [​IMG]
    Well thank you for viewing my build! Any input is greatly appreciated!

    They work just like any other HID. I have the bulb and ballast just like everyone else. Juat make sure you get the right size.

    sorry i misworded my question. i have heard that the 98-00 year tacomas headlights, specifically the lenses do not work well with HIDs and blind oncoming drivers. someone suggested getting some clear headlights off ebay if i wanted to get HIDs. i was wondering how the HIDs perform in your truck.

    Since iv'e had them on i have never had anyone toss their high beams at me. They work very well. much brighter than my old sylvania golds. Mine have a guard on the bottom of them which helps the light pattern stay low.

    Where did you get your PA speaker for the CB??
    I've been looking around for a decent one.
