Lit up Limited

Aren't the white tail lights are led? Also what led did you put into low beams?

In that particular photo I was showing off the white back-up lamps & license plate lights. The low beams are... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The backup lights aren't led by default? What'd you use for those?

Docnasty, what tint do you have on th front windows ? Is that from the dealer, or were you able to come close to the tint of the rear window with aftermarket tint? . It looks good. I'm asking because I pick mine up next week. The dealer is going to put the darkest allowed in sc, but there is still a differenc. I may just tell them to save the money and do it myself so I can come close to the factory tint. My 2010 highlander front tint is pretty close to the rear and probably illegal for SC, but I have not been pulled over the since I've had it. I also want to make sure I have the same charcoal color in the front. I had some installed once and they had a slight purple/ blue tint. It was subtle, but enough to drive me crazy and I ripped them out.

No, the factory back-up lamps are not LED, so I replaced them with these... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I don't know, I kinda like the offset. It makes it look like it could possibly be factory. Been thinking about it though.

Factory tint in the back is somewhere between 30%-35%, so I decided to go with 25% up front. The windshield lets in so much light that last time I went with 35% up front & I could tell the difference from the outside. This time around (with 25% up front) there isn't a huge difference & you can't really tell even on a sunny day like it was in the photo.

Very nice! I'll be looking to do the same whenever it stops snowing and gets warmer out - but really, its how the HL should've come from the factory!

Thanks for the links you posted for your license plate and low beams, what about your cabin lights? what'd you use for those?

Otherwise, nothing original.. Everyone is on the led bandwagon now so why bother with a separate thread.

Nice pictures. Do the back up LEDs light up more when or are they just brighter when looking at them? Not sure if the cost warrants it unless you noticed a substantial difference from stock reverse lights to these ones you orders.

Big questions...I am wondering if anyone know if the 2017 Headlights would work on a 2015? The reason I ask...I REALLY like how the LED strip is built into the headlights and not separate.
