    Welcome to the forum!

    The H9 conversion is generally agreed to be the best solution for the headlights, as you're staying with a halogen bulb.

    I switched to the low-beam H9's on our 2020 4R, I couldn't tell any difference compared to the OEM bulbs, at least while sitting in the driveway. I haven't driven it at night yet, is the difference more apparent on the highway vs shining against the garage door?

    I definitely noticed the difference the first time I drove at night. It's probably more noticeable when it's actually illuminating the road unlike the stock bulbs.

    Pre 18 Tundras worse, love the LEDs on my 20 Tundra. My 17 was no better than my 98 Tahoe.
