Quality isn't cheap because it doesn't cut corners. Some of us will have to make something that no one else has.
No one has a 7"x6" headlight housing with a 3" bixenon HID projector that doesn't sit close to the lens and gives it the bulbous bug eye look.
The back of the projector protrudes into the engine bay much further than the OEM plugs are.
An FX-R 3.0 3" projector is not small.
But I wanted better lighting and I wanted it to look good.
Here we have a *satin* black housing with Toyota Gray Metallic eyelids/(eyebrows?) and projector shrouds.
I've combined a modern OEM headlight look with very subtle color choices and a very subtle aggressive design. That eyelidbrow isn't at an extreme angle. Since it's not on a sealed beam, I'm not blocking usable light, either. I'm not compromising any performance loss.
Toyota metallic gray is also a very beautiful color. It's similar to gunmetal but that paint is full of flakes. Mesmerizing.
So when it comes down to details and quality, it cost me about $3-400 to build my own headlights. Most guys I know wouldn't even do that.
What does that give me?
A road full of light without blinding anyone in front of me.

I wish I had more photos of her.
I've had a rising sun since 2010, white tire letters in 2012, fender flares since 2013, the Works on in 2014. Hurrdurrhurr you're following the trends. Lmfao if you know me, I don't follow trends. I did all of this before everyone started to pick it up.
I've had some people get triggered and upset over the hood.
For everyone's information, if you want to tie this back to the Japanese imperial flag, go do some research. Tell me where the center is placed and how many rays are emitted from the sun.
Majority of the reason people get upset is that they simply don't understand. They're not educated on the facts. They don't know so they get upset and try to get me to change.
No. Do some research and learn your history before you go spouting your nonsense.
It's also red and gold because I'm Vietnamese and it's a rising sun because the truck is Japanese. Yall need a chill pill. ☺
