    After watching Headlight Revolution's video with the comparison several times I decided I like the OEM better. The high beam on the Morimoto was disappointing. The only thing I like better about the Morimoto is the turn signal. Decided I'd rather save some cash and have brighter high beams so I went OEM.

    I am happy with my stock OEM led sport with black. High beams pretty awesome. Enough for my camping needs. If I need more nights I'll just add a light bar.

    +1 OEM LED. Although Morimoto sequential signal is pretty cool. But I can’t justify spending 1200 bucks.

    You can literally pick up the Factory OEM for ~$600 shipped for both units. Spend another $110 or so for the wiring adapter harness and be done. You know that the OEM is tried and true and if you ever have issues, you know that you can go back to Toyota.

    Well guys I had the Morimotos on order I unfortunately had some unfortunate circumstances arise so I had to cancel them. On a brighter note I did score some used oem leds locally great deal maybe next year see how these xbs fair for everyone!

    The high beams on our 2019 oem leds are so bright that white road signs are practically blinding. No complaints here for the oem headlights they are awesome.

    Really it comes down to a couple things! :)

    OEMs:
    -Great Low beam
    -AMAZING High beam
    -OEM Quality
    -Lack of beam pattern on Low beam
    -Everyone has them
    -Average price point

    XB LEDs:
    -Projector cut-off
    (Better Hotspot, more fluid beam patterns)
    -Brighter Low beam
    -Fair High beam
    (OEMs stomp the XB's High beam, XBs is still great!)
    -High Quality
    (Nearly identical to the OEMs)
    -Unique appearance
    -Higher Price Point

    It's really which slice of cake you prefer, they are both awesome choices!

    Can anyone compare them to the OE Sequoia LED headlights yet? Hopefully someone who likes to spend money can compare.

    That's $710 minimum. For an extra $290 I am getting some kickass shit that nobody has right now. Will still be uncommon years from now.

    Note, I am upgrading from the halogen with led drl.
