    The harness in the link is for 2022- Current DRL.

    The 2014 to 2020 is a different harness that’s pictured below in the link.

    Do your OEM headlights use the same bulb for DRL and hi beam? If so, I don't think this will work for you. This is for applications with a dedicated DRL bulb as far as I know.
    Hope that helps.

    It'll all make sense when you have the t-harness in your hands and you open the hood.
    You'll not mess with the Hi/Lo beam connector. You'll only unplug the DRL. Now would be the time to replace the halogen DRL with the LED version like the DD HP48 bulb. The t-harness then goes "in-line" between the OEM DRL harness and the DRL bulb. I removed a small section of the tape on the factory DRL loom so that my t-harness would run "straight". That's probably more of an aesthetic choice on my part.
    After you do that, you'll have a ground wire to connect. There's a convenient ground location on the inner fender structure and the t-harness ground wire should be just the right length to run along your existing ground wiring (from other circuits) to the grounding bolt. You may want to use some wire ties but that's up to you (I used a couple). You may also want to unfasten your smog pump and move it back slightly to make it easier to access the grounding bolt, but it's probably not absolutely necessary, depending on the tools you have, your dexterity and your patience! :)
    Hope that helps.

    Oooh look, another mod.....
    Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you:

    The 4Runner FANNY PACK!

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CBPYP87W?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details $99.99

    Passenger Side

    Drivers Side


    Now, before you roast me with comments like "Why didn't you get a molle panel!?" Well, these are cheaper and I think I can hold more small items in them. Road side tool kit, (fix a flat, jumper cables, tow straps, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, ice scraper, knives, box cutter, zip ties, fuses, tire puncture kit, flares, poncho, flash light, screw drivers, hammer, pliers).

    They fit over the rear windows with ease. They use a vacuum suction cup to attach to the window. No drilling or modifying anything! Easy Peasy. I loaded them both up with about 20 - 30 lbs worth of stuff (just to test) and even tugged on them both really hard. They stayed put.

    PPF'd the unprotected areas on the rear bumper that got scratched to hell by the dog on my last 4runner, and PPF'd the front door handle cups to stop the inevitable finger nail sanding.

    Installed some seat covers, very happy with the results. I was worried because it is a “universal” fit from Amazon but I would say it fit well, time will tell both I’m happy with it and it matches my middle console cover.IMG_0341.jpg

    I thought about that also. I don't think it will effect it. The suction cups have a vacuum assist to them. The tighter I tighten the knob, the more secure they are - or seem to be.

    If I'm driving along and it randomly falls off, I'll let the forum know!

    Weird, I read that for 2021 all 4Runner trims where supposed to have LED headlights and fog lights. Did yours came with non LED headlights when you got it?

    Edit:
    The first article I found was unclear, second one spells it out better:

    LED headlights are standard on all trim levels for 2021 4Runner.

    All trim levels come standard with LED fog lights.

    There are only LED high beams on specific 2021 Toyota 4Runner trims. These include Limited, Nightshade and TRD Pro.

    I've had the Prius for about 2 months and so far so good. It's a Prime so it's purely electric range is more then enough for my commute and when I do travel long distances, I get around 50mpg (a lot of mountain passes so probably better on flat lands). We have some of the cheapest electricity rates in North America so I pay pennies to run it day to day. And I have zero range anxiety or charging issues since it's a simple as stopping at a gas station like any other car if I'm away from home. In a two car family it really is the perfect complimentary vehicle to the 4R.
