    Okay I'm looking for the best but kind of lower priced headlights for my 05 taco. I like the look of the Spyder projector headlights, but i haven't really heard anything good about them. ImageUploadedByTaco Forum1411696751.657935.jpg ImageUploadedByTaco Forum1411696789.159915.jpg

    I like my spec d's only downside was the high beam and projectors weren't LED just the halo its self. So I'm getting a light bar to compensate. Also the grill on my truck is from amazon very clean grill.

  9. +1 - A retrofit into OEM style headlights gives you the BEST output and performance available. A lot of the "halo projector" style lights (as the OP uploaded a pic of) are often terrible - they can have even worse output than stock halogens - fitment issues - shoddy internal components and just overall sub-par build quality.

    You can build a set of headlights OR have a set built that will end up costing more than those - but last 10x as long and give you superb light output.

  14. That depends on your budget and goals to be honest.
    Just to note - those aren't retrofits - they are "projector headlights" -- a retrofit refers to modifying OEM or OEM style headlight housings with genuine HID components. Yours still look sharp, but just wanted to point out the distinction.

    I build retrofits and you cant go wrong with them. HID's are unbeatable in light output and quality

    Pro tuning lab makes great halo headlamps. I just ordered a pair with all the bulbs for only 200 bucks. So far I love them! And they are high quality lamps better than OEM in my opinion.

    Have a picture of the headlights on at night, while facing them? Id like to see the scatter.

    Diodes and filaments have the same characteristics?

    Sounds alot like the hid pnp fad a few yrs ago.
