just set up my new lights over the weekend. Not a bad deal $69 for the set with all wiring and whatnot. Intasllation was straighforward, although the instructions had the relay pinned out wrong. A few minutes with my meter and I had it all sorted out. I mounted them through the front bumper and I must say, they look sweet! Nice bright light too. Woe be unto the jackass that refuses to dim his highbeams at me!!!:)

did you keep the 55 watt bulbs? I'm gonna change mine out to 100 watts, wish I could find something in like a 150 watt, but I'm at a loss for right now. Post some pics if you can. Peace, Wes

haven't changed the bulbs yet, gonna wait till they blow. I am gonna try to find some clear sheathing, like static stick sticker material, to cover the lenses. I will post pics of this tomorrow, along with my new recovery points:)

TACO HELA 500's

I did that same thing with My 04 double cab Taco. Drilled right through the top part of my bumper. I also wired them in with the relay so they will turn on when I flash my high beams. I aimed them down the road for distance and MAN I feel bad for that a$$hole who won't move out of my way or the nucklehead who doesn't turn off there High beams.

I have had them on my truck for 3 months and not once has someone not turned down there high beams when I flashed them.

Part Number for 500's

I believe that the 500s take your standard H3 replacement bulb. You can go to most autoparts stores (autozone) and pick up 100 watt H3 bulbs. :)

Before you replace the 55 watt bulbs with the 100 watt bulbs just make sure you ran at least 12 gauge wire to the lights from your relay. You should also run at least a 12 or 10 gauge wire from the relay to your battery. This way you won't have any problems with the lights not running at full power or them dimming due to too much resistance from the wires not being able to handel the load.

Just My 2 cents. :xdevil:

definitely get something on them. I have a nice pile of glass in the bottom of one of mine from a stone hit.

Guess I'll silicone it up one day when it is warm.

Nothing wrong with packing tape covering a 1/8" hole in the lens, right?

I might get some of that film to cover them with. To me, the 55watt is bright enough for most situations I've had. I've run them for about a year.

it's sad that on my rig, the backup light and rear horn are run with 12 and 10 gauge wire, but the hellas are run with 14 or 18.
