    Just realized that my front driver side headlight is out. Any you recommend? Do you like or not like led blue lights? I’m just planning to get a pair from autozone I think.

    Alot of them
    Headlight or side marker light? And blue is illegal....unless you are talking about 6000k color which has a slight blue tint. I would not go with cheap Autozone LEDs though.

    Found this one on Amazon. Everything matches except for the very bottom that starts with a w. Is that a problem?

    If you want to keep them the same then just get a replacement H11 bulb for your truck. If you want LED you need to find one with an H11 connector. @Headlight Revolution
    I also have a pair of Phillips led bulbs with the ballasts and resistors for sale. I have a 2016 though so not sure if they’d fit.

    Hey OP!

    That would be your H11 Halogen Low beam bulb! We offer a few rock solid kits for the 2nd Gen. Tundras! Here's a Link: https://headlightrevolution.com/vehicles/toyota-tundra/toyota-tundra-2007-2013/

    If you are thinking LEDs, please don't go to Autozone, you'll thank me later I promise! If you are looking for another Halogen bulb replacement, then they have you covered! You can pick that bulb up at any auto parts store, those are the most common bulb styles out there!

    I'm still old school. Leds/hids in reflectors are a no no. Too many folks using chinesium Amazon grade stuff. Think they see better but are blinding more folks on the road. Do a proper retrofit or jump aboard the Alpharex train for budget projectors that look decent.

    You can get hotter/brighter halogen bulbs at the expense of shorter life spans too. I ran ultra stars and race vision bulbs for awhile. Lasted about a year each. Dead bulbs suck on our rigs. PIA to swap them out.

    Which ones would you recommend to keep the same light output and color as my current dead bulb is?

    Any base/cheap H11 bulb should work, but replace bulbs in sets. OEM bulbs are long life, sacrificing performance for longevity. The increasing "trim levels" as you look at each brand's H11 bulb will start to swing the longevity/performance pendulum.

    I’m not able to find Toyotas OEM bulbs that come in a set. Is that what you’re referring to?

    Sorry, OEM supplier used bulbs. Toyota doesn't make their own bulbs. You'll find Sylvania or Phillips bulbs at most parts stores.
