Check your owners manual. You can actually see the part number on the headlights if you look into the headlight housing from the outside/front. I went with H4 in the front and 9005 for the foggys.

I think HB2 is the stock part number for the headlights. H4 is a tad bit brighter as far as I know. Don't quote me though! :thumbup:

I would look in the manual but, I don't actually have the truck yet. I had to order it. I am ordering all my goodies before I get it so when it gets here I will be a busy boy in the garage. Thanks for the help with the head and fog lights, now what about the other bulbs that occupy the headlight housing.

well it looks to me as if the 9003 is the for the Headlamps/Headlights and the 9145 is for the Fog/Driving lights. Is that what you're asking?

No what I meant was........You are not going to find an aftermarket replacement with the part numbers 9003 or 9145, unless you are getting sylvania. I am getting PIAA so what would 9003 and 9145 equate (=) to. I was under the assumption it is 9005 and H4 I believe I am correct.

PIAA application for the Tacoma would be H4 for the headlights and HB for the foglights. I have H4 Super Plasma GTX's for the headlights and I just got my HB Plasma Ion's in for my foglights when I finally get my housings. I cheaped out. No foglights yet. Damn christmas and giving. I'd buy them today if I didn't feel so guilty. :disappoin

Uh oh.... girlfriends coming...Alt+Tab!!!! Alt+Tab!!!!!

the only ones you gotta install without touching the bulb is headlight and fog lights...you have to touch the bulb for the turnsignal and parking light..but the parking light and signal is just a regular filament bulb and not as sensetive as halogen

Thanks for the warnings, I was already aware of this. I have done the upgrade to all my vehicles. The first time I figured that out is when I was driving down the road one time about 30 minutes after a new set of bulbs and it sounded like a huge rock hit the front of my car. It was actually the bulb exploding. Not funny at over 100 a pair.

Yeah thats cool. I am, well to say the least, a little to anal-retentive about my cars. I really like the look of Piaa's 7500K bulbs and I feel it is worth the extra price to obtain a bulb that looks so cool and also burns at the factory wattage. I do not want to melt any wiring harnesses. I did that in my F-150.
