    Installed VLED LED hi and lo beam. Not too difficult and a great start.

    I can truly appreciate someone that tears the whole front of the truck off after 20 hours. Gotta wonder what the neighbors think too. You fit right into this forum ! Keep the pics of your next mods coming too....:thumbsup:

    Trial run. Seems to work pretty good. Better than what I had and worth $200 and a couple of hours of my time. I'm sure they could be tweaked and adjusted but it is good enough. Besides, I'm leveling the truck next week.

    I'm interested in these. Not really concerned with the way the lights look (color temp wise) - though I don't want the blue look.

    Coming from my old sierra the stock tundra headlights are phenomenal. If I can find a way to improve the performance and keep the leveling motors (yes I know retrofits). These bulbs sound interesting

    Glad I'm not the only one that tore into it first day of ownership! I did fogs, lift, wheels/tires, and debadged in first 72 hours.

    The funny thing is I went to the grocery store and came home with a tundra. Wasn't even looking at one really.

    Wife was kinda pissed :)



    Would love to see a shot of the lights on from the front. This truck has the worst lights of anything I've owned.

    if that's the case then the sierra must have the worst headlights in automotive history because the tundra stock lighting is terrible.

    Hyperbole on both ends of the spectrum here.
    2014 Tundra stock lamps > 2005 Sierra stock lamps.

    I don't think anyone finds that comparison very remarkable

    I'm happy with the lights. Putting on adjustable shocks in the front to level, will adjust headlights properly after.
