SPECIAL: This particular body style Tacoma will always be special to us. when our business was founded back in 2005, this Tacoma was hot off the press with its basic halogen reflector headlights–making it prime for a projector retrofit. We’ve always loved our friends at TacomaWorld, and the guys there have always showed us so much love too over the years. now we’re returning the favor once again with the intro of the Morimoto Hybrid LED headlights for the facelifted 12-15 model year Toyota Tacoma.
BANG FOR THE BUCK: The XB Hybrids share many of the same core components developed for the top of the line series from Morimoto, without some of the features that make them considerably more expensive. That said… these new Tacoma headlights Hybrid are hardly a compromise. True reflector optics for the DRL. Killer light output. Good Looks… all wrapped up inside of an OEM-grade housing and backed with a solid five-year warranty.
AMBER AND WHITE DRL: It’s worth noting that these are among the first headlights in the entire Morimoto lineup to be released with two options for the daytime running light. For those of you who want something more traditional and modern, go for the white DRL. For the Toyota truck guys out there who are obsessed with amber LED everything, yea you know who you are–these are also offered with a full amber DRL and not only does it look amazing, but its every bit as bright.
NO COMPETITION: Now lets take a minute to compare the Tacoma LED headlights from Morimoto with some of the other options out there. You’ve got the cheap ebay specials that look cheesy, are poorly built, and don’t perform well. You’ve got projector retrofits for OEM headlights which pack a lot of bang for the buck but take time to build, and then you’ve got the XB Hybrids. For us, there are very few alternatives at this price point that can compare to the Morimoto’s for your 12-15 Tacoma.
HIGH PERFORMANCE: When it comes to light output, these Tacoma headlights wont disappoint at all. we know Tacoma guys arent all about the bling, light output is important too–and there is no lack of luminosity here. the Hybrids have a powerful, wide, and bright led low beam projector, and a dedicated led high beam projector too. their optics were specially developed just last year specifically for use the hybrid lineup to produce an amazing beam pattern despite the affordable price point. unlike other “headlight upgrades” that look decent, these look great, and will most definitely make driving in the dark a pleasure. Bring on the night!
DOT APPROVED: for the ladies and gents that care about street legality, their dual led projector optics meet & exceed all SAE, DOT, and FVMSS108 regulations. they come out of the box aimed to factory specs, and are also fully adjustable for those of you with lifted Tacos.
PLUG AND PLAY: When it comes to wiring, it doesn’t get much easier than this. The Hybrid headlights are designed to work on your Tacoma without any mods. They will plug into the factory H4 three-pin connector for the stock headlights, and will work seamlessly without any issues at all. Since they re-use the stock halogen turn signal bulb, you don’t have to worry about adding resistors or any of that nonsense to avoid hyper flashing either. You will however have to add one cable, which comes included, to power the DRL–but that’s plug n play with one of the slots in your fuse box. No big deal.
ONE LAST QUESTION:So now that you’ve see all of that… the only thing left to decide is, do you go with the white DRL, or Amber? For that is the question!
