    Wife gave me the green light to order some headlights!!!! So it’s between the spyder off Amazon for $380 or one very similar on Amazon sold by Big One outlet. Anybody got any opinions? Last week the spyders were on sale but I missed out... down the road I would use old headlights and get them retrofitted.

    Ahhhhhhh! I know, escpically with black housing on the new TRD is clean. But that would be a while, I don’t like the currrent headlight setup with the TRD Grille.

    Yeah on the 2019 TRD it’s got the blackout look to it similar to the TRD headlights. I already have LEDs for the lights, sidemarkers, and DRL. Could just put them in current housing.

    Dont waste your money on the spyders. They will get condensation in them and the led is barely visible during the day. The oem 18’s are awesome

    Thinking of upgrading to the 18 too. My 17 lights suck for output. How much better are the 18, anyone have pics? I figured close to a grand with wiring harness.

    I am aware of his channel I subscribe to it. Forgot he has some video of the difference between 17 and 18 lights. My BD fog lights really throw the light but not great for using all the time.
