Hella-cool. El-cheapo fogs under the lower grill also. One of the bulbs in the fogs failed recently which has taught me to not mount lights where they are difficult to get to for maintenance.

Re: hella 500's

If you're interested in Hella 500's go to ebay. They're selling for $39.99 shipped and come with everything you need including the plastic rock guards. My friend just bought a pair of Toyota FJ lights and they're exactly the same minus the FJ logo on the covers. Of course the Toyota ones come with the harness and OEM switch as well. But for $12.50 I found a Tacoma switch(forum search!) which makes the Hella install look almost like it came from the factory. And the Tacoma switch is 10x easier to hook up to aftermarket lighting.

I have the install procedure on my link at the bottom. I also have pics of the lights in the dark if you're interested. There's a ton of other install info. so just click on the links to the right for "Hella 500 auxiliary lights install" and "Tacoma switch for Hella lights"
