Specific: So the 2016 Toyota Tacoma finally has OEM LED DRLs, but no HIDs? Weak! Well, here's the market's best Tacoma HID kit and is a plug and play install!
Renowned: The Morimoto Elite Systems have earned their reputation amongst many as the aftermarket's best set of HID's. We urge you to check out the specs below, Read the reviews, and then ask yourself whether your ability to see well while driving at night is worth saving a couple bucks?
HID Ballasts: The all new XB ballasts feature relocated igniters like OEM units, putting them far closer to the HID bulb. The lack of high voltage transmitted through wiring drastically reduces EMI/RFI (radio interference). Total system reliability is also improved by shielding the main circuit board from the static produced by these high voltage bursts on start up. (not to mention they're damn good looking!)
HID Bulbs: At the heart of the XB H11B bulbs is their perfectly aligned 100% Philips Quartz glass that houses a capsule from APL-USA. Using high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer; the bulbs produce nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the amazing Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night!
Wiring: The Morimoto HD Relay Harness features an all-new completely sealed double 40A Relays, 14 gauge stranded copper wire wrapped in durable black tech-flex mesh that looks like a factory harness once installed. No cutting or splicing here: there are only five connections and they're all plug-n-play.
Backed Up: Let's not forget the 5-year warranty on the entire kit*. The Elite system is designed to run for 2500 hours, so that's what it's guaranteed for. Don't buy into empty promises from other places offering BS "lifetime" warranties. Nothing lasts forever, and if you think "the other guy" will be there to pick up the phone or even stay in business long enough to assist you when there's a problem; guess again! [*XB55 kits have 3 year warranty]
User-Approved: By satisfied enthusiasts with all kinds of cars and trucks. With a quick and easy search we pulled up install examples (1,2,3,4,5,6) that span several generations of the Elite HID systems! If you haven’t made a decision just yet, keep reading!
Focus: Since 2005, we have focused our efforts on lighting and that's it. Experience means we know the products. We know the technology. We know our competitors, and most importantly, we know our customers. We like to wrench. We like to drive, we like to ride, and like you: we demand the best for whatever it is that gets us going. That's why at LED Concepts; we only stock the shelves with today's best, brightest, and most badass LED Lighting upgrades.

Well I just installed these babies. The wiring could have been a little more. I didn't follow the instructions to a T but it is working just fine. Quality looks great and the light output is awesome. I purposely drove down a bumpy road and did not see any shaking effect that some other guys mentioned on Tacomworld. The high density grommets work great. I would definitely recommend this specific kit for any 2016 Taco owner looking to get better light than the stock halogens.
I first heard about these on the Tacoma World forum (shout out) and heard only good things - Mainly about the 5500K which is the most popular as per a TFS rep. I ordered the 6500K, which was exactly the color I wanted. I previously owned an F150 with factory HID's. The 6500K provide the same color and performance as my F150 had. I wasn't out for looks so much as performance, and I have accomplished what I set out to do with these lights. Thanks Morimoto/TFS!
