    Hello TW, I recently purchased some Depo Headlights to do a Retrofit along with the Standard HID kit from TRS. I'm not sure what happened but when I checked out of TRS I only had the standard selections in my cart vs what I actually wanted/needed. I am guessing I can still use most of what I got and just purchase the new items I need. Can some folks let me know if I am able to use what I got or am I screwed and should just talk to TRS about a exchange? I am obviously new to retrofitting so please go easy on me. 2008 Tacoma TRD OR

    Gatling Gun Shroud

    ACME 4300K HID H1

    HD Relay 9005/9006/9012/H10

    I am thinking I am only going to need a new harness and shrouds (the gatling gun is not my style). Is the Motocontrol or Canbus Relay better? (H4/9003). Probably also going to order a set of the Apollo 2.0 Flat Black Shrouds as that was what I was wanting the first go around...

    I also am coming from a set of the Spyder Halo's that the previous owner put on the truck that I am replacing so not sure if I can reuse something from those.

    Thanks Fam.

    As far as I see the only thing You need is a Motocontrol H4/9003 harness to work. Everything else you have is just fine.

    Thank you sir, am I going to hate these cheap projectors? Been thinking about spending a bit more coin on something with a better cutoff.

    I had Acme H1 projectors once. They were quit good for the price.

    +1 you'll be perfectly happy with those Acme Projectors. Especially if these are your first. Besides, TRS wouldn't sell them if they weren't of great quality in the first place.
