    8000k? That is quite blue... I have 6000k on my Taco and it is almost even too blue for me. Depends on your style though too. If you drive up and down the main drag, those 8000k will be great head turners, but if you plan on doing any offroading or going out of town, you might be disappointed with the light output. That's just my .02 though, but you will love the HID regardless.

    yea i still think im going to go with 8000k i offroad alot but not at night.
    id rather sacrifice light for looks. if i ever did heavy night offroading ill get a light bar and some hellas.

    thanks for the input tho guys.

    have any pics of ur 6000k?

    you might want to be careful with those. they may be too blue. i dont know about where you live but in florida the cops tend to frown on blue lights

    just since you have this topic up, i was wondering for the 5000- 6000 k bulbs are they just a straight swap out from the originals or do you have to change anything to run the HID 5000-6000 k bulbs for head lights

    If I was to get some 6000k bulbs for head lights would thee high beams work with those bukbs?

    Could I use a 6000k light bulb with stock housing?
