    So, I've had my new trd off road a week. Had already ordered trd pro gill, heretic amber fogs and decals, wheels tires and lift. AND, new headlights (upgraded LED'S found on upper trims and not an SR5 like mine) but when I was about to take off the other headlight I noticed this huge gapbetween the headlamp and fender. The same on the other side. Does anyone have this with their 22 tundra?? Seriously on a Toyota? Honestly all the gaps are overly larger than what you would expect on a 60k truck. Any thoughts?

    Certainly something is stopping it from closing all the way?? Or the rubber stopper is turned up too high. Shocked it left the factory like that.

    The slope at which the formerly vaunted Toyota quality is degrading is increasing....rapidly. New models do have teething pains, but there's no excuse for incredibly obvious QC lapses such as this. This type of fault 15 years ago actually making it out of the factory undetected would have been as rare as actually spotting Bigfoot in the factory. Now, sadly, it seems to be commonplace. And these are the obvious deficiencies. It's the corners that have been cut with the newer vehicles that you can't readily see are what worry me. They're keeping my butt firmly planted in my older vehicle that was made at a time when quality actually mattered.

    Question on the headlights, I was under the impression the wiring harness is different for the SR5 and higher trims? Or are they simple plug and play?

    A wee bit more than 1/8" between the headlights and the fenders? Must be me but that seems acceptable. It's a truck that must be designed for some light work and off roading. Stuff gives.

    from what i remember another forum member had the same issue. it was a mis aligned hood stop on one side or something to that effect.

    I drove down to my local toyota dealer and they had two new Tundras. Both has the gap one better than mine one worse. I have been in the automotive retail business for 31 years in hilton head sc and I can tell you it is absolutely not acceptable. It is as poor as Teslas fit and finish which is the worst. Also, as most of you are aware the head light upgrade dose.t work. Canbus lines and new wiring harness. I thought I did my due diligence and the dealer told me they were compatible. 100% they are not.

    That straight up look like a cheap aftermarket headlight that don’t fit right…there should be no gap at all…gaps is for moving parts, doors, hood and tailgate.
