    My 2019 Tundra had the stupid ugly low output stock halogen headlights.
    Always baffled me how you get awesome LED drl's but halogens for the actual headlamps!!???

    Anyways been cruising the forums and the internet for a long time now trying to find a replacement option.

    Absolutely did not want to buy entire new headlight housings as it was too much money.
    Saw a few led kits that had resistors or some kind of harness/wiring required.
    Almost pulled the trigger on this but the cost of some of these was upwards of $100.

    Then I saw this on Amazon for $50 and user reviews claimed they worked fine without a harness or resistor.

    Decided to roll the dice and try it.

    Works perfect!! Plug and play, literally.

    Beam pattern is perfect and road visibility at night is improved so much.

    How are you liking these after a few weeks? Did you have to re-aim your lights?
    Thanks

    I love these!!!

    They offered easily a 3x improvement in night time visibility on top of the pure white light.

    The beam pattern is great and I did not have to adjust my headlights. I have not had a single person flash at me indicating they are too high either.

    The high beam pattern isnt as good as stock but since my normal lights are so good now I dont really find the need to use the high beams anymore.

    I love these so much I bought the same brand for my fog lights and will be installing them tomorrow!

    Thanks for the update! Bummer about the high beam though, I use mine a bunch out in the sticks trying to avoid deer.

    If you can remove the stock one, you can install these. There's nothing to worry about them. They are plug n play type bulb. Direct replacement.

    You have to take the grille off. After that, it should be easy peasy.

    Do they interfere with radio reception? I read that LED headlights sometimes interpreted with reception.

    Ordered these, they arrived tonight at sunset. Didn't want to wait til tomorrow to install so ventured out into the 350% humidity night to do it. Got entire front end removed (including fender well molding) and headlight assembly out only to find that AMZ shipped me wrong item. :annoyed:

    well, dang diggity dog, that just suck big time. I can only imagine the frustration. But atleast you can take the front end off super quick next time, right? not all is lost.
