    So after lots of searching around for new headlights on my 16,I came across these:

    https://www.amazon.com/VLAND-Projec...1&keywords=vland+tundra&qid=1603373960&sr=8-1

    They actually seem to have really good reviews (unlike the spyder ones..) and some cool features. Tried searching the forums here but didn't find a ton about them. Any insights? They look pretty sweet for a good price!!

    2 Red Flags go up for me on things like this

    The lack of owners here who have them.

    The amount of picture or videos reviews on Amazon. No one leaves pic or video reviews for positive reviews, unless compensated....

    Edit, yup paid for review - look beside all the reviews, it states "early reviewer rewards". They aren't real reviews in my eyes. "Early Reviewer Program may be asked to write a review and those customers who submit a review within the offer period will receive a small reward (e.g. a $1-$3 Amazon.com"

    They were taken from the promotion. I noticed that too

    It looks way too fishy.

    Actually that can be explained, they didn't close the HTML at the end of their description so the rest of the page is in italics, even the Amazon info at the bottom of the page.

    I have the VLand LED headlights on my truck(not these projectors). When I first saw them on Amazon they were around $600. Wasn't going to pay that so I waited and they came down to $379. At that price I figured I'd give them a try. I haven't had any issues with them. Brighter than stock, easy to adjust and levelers work from dial just like stock, no moisture issues so far. Fitment is very good, no odd gaps anywhere. They have sequential LED turn signal which can be changed if you don't like that option. No complaints but if I ever have issues I will probably go to the factory LED's rather than another Chinese product. Don't expect great customer support as they don't have US Service(they give support it's just difficult as they are in China and English seems difficult for them). I didn't get the adapter harness for the LED DRL's and the company was no help but I believe they are now shipping with the harness so shouldn't be an issue. I just made my own harness and switched out their connectors with some GM Weatherpack's that I had laying around(this does not tap into the factory wiring). I think the quality is fine for the price point, shouldn't be any issues. Just make sure if you buy from Amazon it is from VLand and not a secondary vendor as VLand will give you support buying directly from them for warranty issues.

    thanks for the info! Yeah I may just splurge and get the OEM trd pro lights, 560+shipping really isn't that bad. I just like the sequential turn signals and all that. Sounds like from the reviews they're now including the harnesses or at least having good customer service to get you them if needed. hmmm decisions
