    Hello everyone, so about a year-and-a-half ago I purchased a set of the Morimoto XB LED headlights for my Tundra truck. I'm now noticing that there appears to be some sort of moisture and dust build-up on the inside of the headlight assemblies (see pics). Has anyone else purchased these and had similar issues? It's disappointing because when I purchase these, I was told that they were 100% sealed units (quality being a large part of the $1200.00 price tag). I haven't contacted the place where I bought them yet but I'm assuming that I should be able to get these replaced since they came with a 5 year warranty. Any input is welcome and appreciated.

    I would really hope so. This was my next planned purchase to replace my halogen headlights. Please keep us posted as to how the manufacturer responds.

    Had mine since September. We have some pretty stormy weather on and off. They are still in pristine shape. I'd start a claim if possible. Never heard of this occurring.

    Wow, that is quite a difference. I definitely will start a claim. Thank you for the input

    I will definitely keep you posted on how I am received by the company where I purchased these.

    All of that is on the inside? Where did you purchase them from? If you don't have any luck with your vendor, contact @Headlight Revolution. They have a 5 year warranty and they haven't been out for 5 years, so I would hope that they would be able to assist you.

    I had XBs on my Tacoma for about a year and they saw some very heavy off road use, smacked by trees, brush, etc. No cracks, no moisture. This is definitely a warranty claim.

    That should certainly not be happening man! This is definitely a defective situation, I'm real sorry to see this! :(

    Can you email us about this? We'd be more than happy to help you out and get you patched up in a jiff!
