    I know how to adjust but can't remember what height to shoot for. I didn't measure anything beforehand so not sure how far to take them back down. I had a 2.25" spacer lift installed. Do I go down that far plus the new tire size difference?

    Not OEM.
    Mine are fine with the leveling kit. I have stock bulbs, the bright whites might blind people.

    I have ebay projectors so my cutoff is pretty straight. I have it set so if i'm about 10 feet behind the car in front its right under their mirrors. This way if someone is an ass i can pull up a little closer and blind the bejesus out of them =)

    '10 DC Sport 4x4, Barcelona Red. I've got a Daystar spacer kit and nothing in the rear so far. My dealership is giving me the runaround on doing the TSB for the rear when they did my '08 with no questions asked, go figure. Going with an AAL from Toytec and will be replacing the Daystar with 5100s or an OME kit soon. Wheels are 17x9 KMC Revolvers with 265/70 Nitto Terra Grapplers.

    What is the setting (adjustment) for high beams? I lifted my truck and the low beams are alright as is (3" lift) but turning on the high beams is like turning the lights off, they aren't lighting up the road.
