    Hiya -

    Sooo pulled into my garage after a long shift and I didnt realize there was a box with a divider for the dogs on top of it - the pole impaled my passenger side fog light. Did not damage the housing, just the bracket that it snaps into. I am Looking for the right part/how to just to replace just that bracket... Right now it just sits in there but it’s not secured. I can get a picture if needed...

    Any help would be appreciated! I’m new to the 4Runner Ohana but since I was 12 it’s been my dream car.

    Thanks

    I dont know the part number but maybe this is an excellent time to upgrade the fog lights and housing?? I just got my Morimoto XBs and I can not wait to swap them out tonight. I dont know how much the original bracket costs but OEM seems to always be pricey. These fogs with housing were only 205$.

    Awesome, it looks like the Morimotos have their own brackets. Do they mount to the existing fender plastic? I’ve only looked at it from underneath, I have not taken the fender plastic off yet so I may Not be seeing where it’s mounted - thank you! That’s a great solution and I’ve been wanting to update to the smoked lights anyways!

    Yes they are literally plug and play. I am waiting for Saturday to install mine but my buddy did his 3 weeks ago and its easy. I would say the hardest part is taking the bumper off. Once that bitch is off though its easy peasey. I also consider myself to be pretty dumb when it comes to car mechanics and working on them. So if I can do it LITERALLY anyone can.

    @Clintel ohhh and the LEDs look bad ass too its not just a bulb in there. I think they are worth the 205$ price point for the amount of light they throw and for how bad ass they look.

    Best of luck and if you have questions just ask me. Morimoto has an XB install video too which is 10 minutes long but its a straight forward process.
