    They look like spyders however nowhere on the ad do they claim to be spyders.. for that price I would just get the real deal. I have spyders and love them.

    Sounds good. Got a link to them?

    But also, back to the topic at hand, did you change them yourself? Easy?

    I got them from CarId http://www.carid.com/2015-toyota-tundra-headlights/. The install is super easy, 20 min job. You will need to remove the grill and the panels under the headlights.

    Only the amber light is on the DRL. The led strip comes on with the parking lights and headlights

    You must be Batman if you could swap out the headlamps in 20 mins. I just did mine today and took me a little over a hour. It was my first time so I should be able to shorten my time next time.
