    Does anyone else seem to get flipped off repeatedly because you blind the people in front of you? I don't know how many times I've been flipped off or had someone slow down to get behind me and run their brights to try to blind me. But of course, mine are on dim when they get pissed. Just wondering if anyone else has this happen or if my lights are just extraordinarily bright.

    When you put your leveling kit on did you re-aim your lights?

    I get it all the time. I don't give a rat's ass. But then again, I'm kind of a dick anyway.

    After I put on my spacers I had my headlights adjusted, and I still get flashed. And not the good kind.

    Yeah man, you need to adjust your head lights. The law won't be on your side if it causes an accident. If you're getting it all the time, you really need to fix it.

    I didn't have them re-aimed at first. But after a while I did. And I still get the finger and flashed. I'm like EquinsuOcha (WHITE DEVIL! ha ha. Love that movie), I don't really care that it pisses people off. The only thing that worries me is getting behind a crazy person that will get out and try to break the headlights (Had that happen in a friend's Jeep one time. The guy busted his headlights and fog lights).

    I re-aimed my lights after I leveled my taco, but I still get the 'ol one finger wave. I've come to accept it and interpret it as: Your Tacoma is #1!!

    I’ve adjusted my lights to not blind people after I installed my 5100… Anyone with suspension or wheel upgrade no matter how minor should also. But yeah, before I adjusted mine I get flipped off and high beamed all the time. One time this dude got behind me and high beamed me. I slammed on my breaks while he was behind me and swerved to the left to get next to him but he chickened off and made a U…. what a puss

    by the way i adjusted them way down not jsut a few clicks.. before this I was blinding 18 wheelers it was that bad. I've had 18 wheelers honk,flash methen flip me off on the high way a few times. :D

    I had mine re-aligned and still get flashed as well. I just flip on my brights and leave them on and the people start flashing like crazy because they can't see shit! It's hilarious!

    I only get the false-flash when I'm running the fog lights. Just flip on the KC's, that'll quiet them up.

    I usually do. After they get behind me and bright light me, i just slow waaaay down and flip my brights on. The normal response is them flipping their rear view all the way up.
