    I think I copied the link correctly…so to be clear, these DO work in the 2021 LED projector head lamps in the DRL position. From what I’ve gathered, non-led, pre-2021 does not work since the drl is utilized as high-beams. Kinda tricky, there is a thread all about it somewhere here, 2021 Pro and Limited models came with LED headlamps and from what I’m gathering…2022 (all models) come standard with these LED headlamps. These specific bulbs supposedly can operate at the 6V power with minimal “flickering” used as DRL’s. I have not had any flickering in mine thus far. Hope this helps!

    My 2020 is at 46k miles so decided to grease the drive shaft. Some of those zerks are a massive pain to get the grease gun on and it renewed my hate for the inability to actually have the coupler hook on. I got 5 of the 6, I'll try the one I couldn't get a good connection on when I change the oil next month.

    I got the lock 'n lube and have been very pleased with it. A couple of times when greasing my rear drive shaft, I've had to move the vehicle a bit to get the drive shaft to spin such the zerks end up in a more accessible position.

    Chock the front wheels. Get the rears off the ground and put it in neutral. Spin drive shaft to desired position. My arms don't contort like they used to.

    Too poor to buy anything now

    I bought the nylon 3/8" barb fitting from Tractor Supply for $2.75. I just wanted nylon over brass or plastic.
    I got a foot of 3/8" hose cut from a reel from an auto parts store for $1.00.
    Took about 15 minutes. It's easier if you turn your front wheels to the left to give you more room.

    Clean it up or replace it (you'll need starting fliud and compressed air.) They get packed with crud and lose their clamping ability.

    Those look nice and I want a set, but they ONLY come in one style. I'm not going to advertise for 4Runner Lifestyle for free. I wish they'd make a "Toyota" or "4Runner" lettering style.

    Might be 4Runner adjacent but stopped by Equipt Expedition Outfitters on my way through Salt Lake Wednesday and had a Eezi-Awn platform attached to my 4Runners pup trailer. Seriously considering the same platform for the 4Runner now.

    Just bought them for my 24 hope they work, hate the look of the OEM DRL. I end up turning them off. I wish they updated the lights like they did on the 21 Tacomas
