Second Gen: We can't deny, we're a group of Toyota truck guys around here. Walk our parking lot and you'll find a Tundra or two out back fitted with our projector retrofit kit. It's not that the stock H4 halogen headlights are all that bad...it's just that they look so much better, and perform so much better with the retrofit kit installed. If you've been down the plug n play HID or LED path...already tried a complete set of aftermarket “projector” headlights....and all along never found yourself satisfied with the performance in the middle of the night? Yep, you need a projector retrofit. You need THE projector retrofit package that's been tailored specifically for your 14-17 Tundra. The last set of headlights you'll ever need.
Custom: Stock sucks, but buying a set of pre-made aftermarket projector style headlight's is the lazy-mans choice when it comes to custom. Can you actually stand out with a set of pre-made headlights? With their weako cheapo halos? Can you customize those lights to your own taste? Painted to match your truck? Can you actually see anything with the piss poor projectors that those headlights come with? Here, your the ability to customize is clear, and your ability to see well at night even more so. There's no comparison between the off-the-shelf option and the projector retrofit option.
Worth it: We get it, a lot of guys are afraid to open their headlights and just start cutting shit up. While performing a projector retrofit isn't nearly as easy as swapping in a set of plug n play bulbs, it's not rocket science either. A long afternoon on a weekend though and you can knock this out, and we promise: The results will be so well worth it that you'll wonder why you didn't do it any sooner. Not only that, but a common difficultly in doing a projector retrofit is not knowing any better and picking out the wrong parts. We've performed hundreds of retrofits ourselves and helped thousands of Tundra owners over the years – so trust us when we say: this kit has all the right gear to get it done right.
Power: Is nothing without control! The Tundra Retrofit kit is based on Morimoto's best bi-xenon projectors, and it shows in their picture perfect light output. With a super wide and intense beam pattern; your headlights will harness the full potential of the HID system and project it into a controlled beam to illuminate the road ahead, all while eliminating glare to oncoming traffic. Their geometry/size is ideally suited for use in the Tundra's headlight reflectors, and will install easily and with just minimal modification using the included hardware. Once mounted, their aim can be fine-tuned just like the stock headlights, using the adjusters on the back of the housing.
Plug n Play: Don't skimp out when it comes to your wiring. It doesn't matter how good your ballasts are or how good your bulbs are. If your harness is a piece of crap; when it gives out your headlights are gonzo. With triple-sealed twin relays, 14ga. stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality, it will ensure everything functions properly and permanently from the truck's in-cabin controls. The Tundra Retrofit kit comes with all of the necessary wiring parts and pigtails to make it completely plug n play with your stock wire harness, guaranteed!
All the goods: The rest of the components in the Tundra fitted retrofit package are carefully chosen to perfect the looks & light output of your headlights. The industry's best HID bulbs and ballasts from our friends at Morimoto are packed with performance, reliability, efficiency, and overall quality. The projector shrouds are perfectly suited to fit within the Tundra headlight reflectors and provide a factory-finished look. Standard in chrome, they can easily be painted too. When you're putting together a set of high-end headlights, the last thing you want is moisture in 'em the first time it rains outside – and that's why the kit also includes a a roll of the effective RetroRubber sealant.

These lights are a lot better than stock halogen and were a fun project. The kit had most of what you needed but there are a few things you should get to complete the work. Extra wire for tying in the switchback module for the shrouds into your vehicle harness, wire taps, double sided trim tape to mount the switchback module and rubber housing caps. Not as complete a kit but 90% there. Some caveats though, do not rely on the H4 alignment adapter for alignment. It is way too flimsy and allows the projector to rotate freely when tightening down the nut. Use the 4Runner method shown in this video: https://youtu.be/mTvhyH8dlFc
Caveat #2: the Panamera switchback shroud does not extend back far enough using the stud mount to cover the projector and wiring. It will be visible.
Many of the Tundra light assemblies are Permasealed so be sure to get tools for taking care of this too. It was a pain doing it without the dissolver.
