Default '88 headlight swap

so My father-in-law has a Land Cruiser and just put in some new head lights, gave me his old ones... they fit perfectly.

well this isn't that special... but when you look at the hot ass head lights they have for the land cruisers you'll think again....

um, I lost the catalog... mind you this is in Japan and I think I left it there by mistake..

well I'll try to find it online and post it. they have those lighted rings for day-time running lights (lowers insurance) both as a center ring or around the outer perimeter of the light housing... all of which can be made Xenon...

because I'm un able to find a good pic of those head lights and I haven't gotten a reply about the maker of those cool head lights this should show you that they use the same size style of headlight with a replaceable halogen bulb.

when I get the makers web page for those head lights I'll link that...





basically they are like this but for our truck...

you have to replace the who bulb... there are 4 small screws that hold the retaining bracket on the bucket, then the whole light comes out. as for a fuse.... you got me there, I didn't know they had a fuse.

I was looking to possibly put some halos on my 05. I was wondering if you have seen them actually installed on one.
