    I just got a 2019 Off Road and tried to put H11 Xenon Depot extreme LED's in the low beams. These LED's are pretty new and worked great in my last vehicle 2 days ago but don't turn on at all in my new Tacoma. All connections were checked multiple times. I put the stock halogens back in and they work fine. Is there something in the auto high beam function or wiring resistance preventing these from working on the newer Tacoma?

    I just reversed the polarity of the bulb wiring and that was it. It's working fine now. I will say that the cooling fins on the back of the bulb make installing in the tight space of the low beams a real PIA!!!!

    I see Toyota addressed the nightmare location of the Windshield Washer Fluid Tank (when it comes to changing headlight bulbs) from the 2nd generation truck by making things even worse on the 3rd gen. :angrygirl:

    Keep your wire well clear of those things too...those fins get pretty hot

    The wire comes out from the base of the fins=unavoidable

    The Xenon Depot extreme LED's are easily 50% brighter than stock halogens and retain the same beam pattern and squirrel spotters and throw light the same distance or further . The light is also pure white. I added some inexpensive Amazon LED's for the fogs for an easy install without extra wiring.
    I've read a lot of negative reviews about LED's in the 3rd gen housings but I'm very happy with the output.
