    Looking to pick up a set of headlights for my 2013 MGM CM RW. I don't want to go too crazy, prefer to go with an OEM style but with a black housing. Would plan on upgrading to some quality LED bulbs. Overall, not looking to spend more than $300 on the actual light assembly itself, but I don't want eBay or Amazon junk either. Would love to hear some thoughts on quality lights that don't break the bank, surely there's something out there. Here's a pic of my rig as well! 913C1360-7CF1-420D-96DC-4E7F0F5F313E_1_201_a.jpg

    I just ordered Alpharex Pro from theretrofitsource.com for $361 shipped using Black Friday special. It’s a little more than your $300 budget but my understanding is that they’re worth it for the money. I think the sale is good through Monday?

    I have no suggestions for headlights since I opted to spring for the Morimotos and fogs on the BF deal but nice truck! Twinsies?

    Deer guard, LED everything.
    Here's a link to what I put on our 2ND gen sequioa.

    Here's a link to the headlight housings. Clear lens with a dark housing.
    Link.

    Here's a link to the LED headlights I used in the housings. I also changed the side markers to white LED also. (No link to those. Just 194 bulbs from Wally wurld, X2)
    Link.
    This one kit came with both the High, and Low beam bulbs.

    Here is a picture of a black lens with a black housing that I took out in favor of the clear lens.

    Dark lens+Dark housing on the right side (drivers.) I removed these in favor of these. (Pics below)

    Our Sequoia does NOT HAVE the leveling system. I'm not sure if these are compatible with that. I adjusted these manually with no issues.

    Total cost for this set of lights/LEDS
    Housings: $120
    LEDs. : $60
    194 leds. : $20???
    Total cost: $200

    Here is a link to my 1st time replacing the headlights. It was easy peasy.
