    no, the conversion is for model years 2014 - 2020, not to mention the headlights on a 2012 T4R are completely different.

    A good set of bulbs for the 2012 reflector headlamps probably perform better than they would in the 2014-2021 projector headlamps, so the upgrade from halogen to led wouldn't be as significant. The GE/Tungsram +130 would be a great improvement over the stock bulbs, assuming the headlamps haven't yellowed.

    If a set of LED headlamps would bolt up to the 2012, you'd also have to swap the fenders and front fascia along with other things to make it work.

    In that case the headlights would fit, but you'll need to confirm wiring from the truck to make sure the functions remain the same or can be altered to work correctly with the new headlights.

    The issue is the headlight wiring from 2012 is different to 2016+

    The newer style headlamps are 2014+. I think the 4Runner has been using H11 low beams from 2006 to 2020, and 9005s high beams since the 90s.

    Best way to make sure is to test all functions (low-beam, high-beam, DRL, etc) to see what turns on and if it's functioning as expected. Then check the wiring harnesses/plugs and take pictures. Either upload them to this thread or contact @daveeasa directly.
