    Fogs for a 2009 Camry fit perfectly, eBay has them for $60. Add a $5 relay, and a couple hours, and you're good to go

    Thanks McLovin, I have a prerunner so I think it is prewired with relay I just have to check. Don I will check for those fog lights after I make sure what my taco is set up for.

    CLC, how long have you had that kit installed?

    thanks fellas!

    Have you had a chance to install these yet?

    I bought this kit, and installed the lights, but the wiring diagram (where to tap in under dash) doesn't match my 2013 wiring. I haven't been able to figure out where to connect the wires inside the dash, and don't want to &^% it up. McDonough is still checking out why.

    Hey MojoTaco

    Do the lights install like they came from the factory? or does it require some customization?

    They are direct fit. I had my bumper off so it was easier, but I ended up loosening the wheel-well liner, and pushed it out of the way to get at the screws to remove the bezel cap. The lights just bolt right in with the same screws. The flat plastic trim piece that surrounds the light stays right in, so you don't have to remove that at all.

    I was impressed with the wiring harness. Everything you need wiring-wise is already there, and the wires to the relays have preinstalled sockets that just plug into the relays. No soldering or connectors to install.

    The only problem that I have is that my under-dash wiring does not match the pictures shown in the instructions, so I'm waiting for an answer from the techs before I attempt to make final connections.

    If I get a chance later today, I'll snap a pic of the installed lights, so you can see the fit.

    I just finished installing their kit on a new 2013 & it's probably about as smooth as it will get for this kind of job. It works as advertised; links up with the low beams/no DTRL. If you choose to go this route, here's a few things I found: The tie wraps in the kit are junk. Very brittle and break easily so get some elsewhere. The wiring harness is equipped with spade lug connectors, and those mate with T tap crimp on connectors to hook up to the under dash wires. I've found T tap crimp ons to be suspect, and these did not disappoint. I wound up soldering but perhaps you'll have better luck. Apart from that it's exceptional. The harness is sized correctly and the lights are Toyota OEM. Be sure to grab the two instruction sets off their web site as they are in color - the enclosed guide is not. I think I spent around 10 hours installing but I'm way too anal retentive.
