If you’re still using old-fashioned halogen headlights on your Fifth Gen Toyota 4Runner, whether it’s halogen bulbs, HID kits, or LED bulbs, it doesn’t matter because they’re outdated compared to the Morimoto XB LED headlights. These headlights are not only visually appealing and well-built, but they also have an incredibly long lifespan and an unbeatable warranty, making them the best-LED headlights available on the market today for the 4Runner aftermarket.
SECOND GEN UPDATE:
When the 4Runner XB headlights were introduced as the first set of performance aftermarket headlights for the 4Runner, some early adopters weren’t completely satisfied with the light output. However, Morimoto quickly came up with a new Gen 2 version that includes the full Amber DRL model, which is perfect for a 4Runner with Amber LEDs.
MORE LIGHT OUTPUT:
The original 4Runner XB’s had 2 projectors for low beam and one for high beam, while the new setup utilizes all three projectors for the low beam and has a dual Bi-LED setup. As a result, there is a 33% increase in light output for low beam mode, a 100% increase in output in high beam mode, and better light distribution with more foreground, providing improved visibility while cornering.
In addition to the optical upgrades, the start-up sequence is pretty impressive. When the Daytime Running light comes on, the projectors illuminate in a two-stage sequence before turning back off. Although it doesn’t have any impact on performance, it definitely has a cool factor!
