    Hey guys this is my only second thread, but i was wondering for your guys opinion. I just got my tacoma a month ago. I bought a sound system for it. And found this good deal on headlights. this is the link so everyone can see, i am not good at putting up pictures on here, considering its only my second thread.

    these are for two black projector headlights. I have stocks right now. I just want to see everyones opinion whether or not they like them. Also if anyone has them, if they recommend them or not!
    appreciate it

    Yeah i have seen alot of people do that mod also. I can't really decide between the two. I just found these and thought they were a pretty good deal. I am not sure what i am going to do yet.

    Do the BHLM instead. It's virtually free.

    Yeah the Halos never caught my attention. I mean by all means if you dig them, get them, its your truck!! I have the aftermarket BHLM's and was thinking about doing the retro projector lenses in them but I'm not to sure cause they are pretty pricey.:eek:

    Check my sig and photos. I love the lights and always get good compliments from others on them. People have there own opinion on them and most say they hate them. BUT I LOVE THEM!! had them about 2 years now, not one problem whatsoever from them. I put brighter bulbs in just because i do a lot of night driving but the ones that come with them are pretty good as well. But it's your truck, if ya dig them the get them!

    ^Very true. That should go without saying on any opinion given online.

    thanks for the info. I really like them on your truck!! they look great, i have the spdway blue one. Like i said in my post i don't really know how to put up pictures, but i will get it figured out one day and have my entire build up, once things start going this summer. What needs to be done to have the leds and halos? don't i have to splice into some other wires to get them to work?

    thanks guys, appreciate the help and everything. I am still debating whether or not to do it. The guy emailed me back earlier, so i will have to wait for a response and different things tomorrow. Yeah and i understand opinions are opinions. I just like to get different input.

    look gay, have terrible output and lenses will yellow quick. oh, did i mention that the halos will most likely fail pretty quickly as well....oh, and the halo, LEDs and that clear strip will be three different colors, they will not match...i've worked w/ a set before so this is how i know.

    you get my point!

    you just have to splice in to the running light for power for the led's and halos, very simple to do! i helped another member install his through PM and he said it was easy to do.


    Have you had them ever? not to be a dick but mine have never had those problems and they work 100% like new 2 years old

    installed a set for a guy here and noticed EVERYthing i posted. i dont make stuff up and only post it if i have actual facts to back it up...unless i say that its my opinion.

    so no i have not had them, but i have installed a set that was less than a year old. i have also taken apart several egay BHLM, and they are all the same cheap materials.

    even worse...dont have this exact set, but many of those aftermarket lights leak because of the bad sealant they use....this i do have experience w/ as i have taken several apart and they all have the crappy sealant.
