    Been going back n forth of what does work or not. Some mention that LED are bad for low beam. Others mention HID do not last long due to ballast goes bad. Headlight Revolution says we can not recommend an LED bulb to me as they are not street legal. Would Putco Nitrox-Lux Led Type 11 do any good on low beam? It was recommend to me as would fit in for low beam. For Fog light as SS3 LED Fog Light Kit as PRO. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Not sure about everyone else but im running Morimoto 2 Stroke 2.0 for a couple years now and put H11 L.E.D's in the fogs with yellow Lamin-X. Never been flashed and can actually see at night. We live in the country and need the extra light at night

    I have GTR Ultra 2s for my lows and highs and Diode dynamic SS3 pros in yellow for my fogs. Love the setup!

    I got Lasfit switchbacks for my front signals, nice clean white look and the turn signals are BRIGHT.

    I see what you have done on yours. Any issues with using LED on low beams as blind sided for oncoming vehicles. Also several reviews I read saying headlight of 4Runner isn't suitable for LED due to housing or projector. It throws off shining lights on the road. I do want to get Diode Dynamics SS3. Should I get the driving fog or Pro Fog? Does yellow fog makes a difference than the white one? Or it all comes down to everyone preferences.

    I sent you a PM but just for anyone else who has the same questions-

    No problem with blinding oncoming vehicles. There is a nice cutoff line with the GTR Ultra 2s. I don't agree with the projectors being suitable for LED bulbs. The GTRs look great.
    It's sort of personal preference for yellow or white fogs. I went with yellow because I probably wont use them unless I'm in the fog or snow. I would think white would be more for blowing up dark roads. The Pros are crazy bright. When I first tested them both my daughter and myself were like "Woah!" and started laughing, they're that bright. I figured it I was going to spend money on fog lights I would go big.

    If you're going to do the fogs I would recommend getting LED lights for the turn signals and swapping them at the same time, otherwise you'll have to reopen the interior wheel well flaps.

    I bought these- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08294XHC7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I fogs I bought were the

    Don't bother with LED drop-in bulbs. They're overpriced junk. I'll quote my own post for the reason why below:

    Do you have any problem with them overheating constantly running white with no heat sink?

    Question. Did you have to tap into the harness to use the resistor?

    No resistor needed, they are plug and play. The turn signals are BRIGHT

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08294XHC7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Funny it states "But they do NOT FIT for Honda Pilot, Jeep, Toyota Tundra, Crosstrek, and Forester." These are the exact bulbs I ordered and installed and I have zero problems.
