Looks good man!
You listed "Xenon Depot LED headlight kit"... is that for low beams or high beams? I couldn't find any LEDs that worked good with the stock projectors, and I'm still not too happy with HIDs in there either.

Ya those are for the low beams. Is it as good as Audi and other led projectors? Not at all. Is it good enough for me? Yes. I definitely miss my morimotto retrofit in my 05 but I'm definitely not struggling to see. I spent some time finding the right configuration with these LEDs and for them dialed in at almost exactly 9 and 3 and that helped throw the light further.

Also that might change when I get into the woods but we will see.

I definitely wish toyota spent more time on their headlights and light configuration but I'm also glad they spent more time on the more important aspects of these rigs.

I had the same thoughts with my headlights. I've got Morimotos in the stock projectors. A million times better than halogen bulbs but still leaves a lot to be desired

Me too... and maybe just 10 more minutes to upgrade the interiors (my 2011 dashboard/ gagues are horrible compared to yours, they look like they're stuck in the early 2000s)

Awesome day. Ran Barlow Road to Grasshopper Point. Didn't quite make Badger Lake which sucks but we had to get back to town.
Couple shots from today
