    I just got the depo blacked out ones. Pair was like 120 bucks shipped off eBay. Might be worth a look.

    The TYC products are good quality. I replaced the headlights and passenger mirror on my wife's 4Runner and they seem close or equal to OEM quality. I got them from RockAuto, though -- there is a discount code on here somewhere.

    You probably know/did this ... But anyway Check to see what years are the same for your model (i.e. fits 2006 to 2014 or whatever.) Then I'd search ebay for a gently used assembly from a seller with a 99% feedback. Otherwise Search google in the shopping page for same. I have the best luck when I find a part number to search for.

    For ME If I can get a good used one -- that's fine for me. You can always buff it up.

    I see it's brandy new ... too bad I feel bad for you. How did the DH do it?

    No idea. My dad and I were up at our cabin and took his truck, left mine in the driveway.

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll just find something inexpensive but compatible.

    Are the lenses on yours clear or are they smoked?

    Is "Replacement" a good brand? Found one by them for 75 shipped. Definitely easier on the wallet, more money for mods.

    check out the LED Tail lights made by Spyder. I've been running the black ones for over 3 years now with no problems. IMO the OEM LED tails are ugly. Also, the Spyder tails have many more LED bulbs in the taillight and are 10x brighter. Just a suggestion.
