    Are the Phillips H4 led's
    A good upgrade from the stock yellow lights...?
    Have the Baja design squadron sport fogs and the led DRL's but hate the factory yellow bulbs...
    Looking for the very best direct swap and Phillips has always been high quality...
    Anyone with experience on these..?

    Your bulbs are H11. You would be better served with an HID kit, LEDs cant compare are far as output goes and in most cases dont provided proper light spread either.

    HID is too pricy. I was looking for plug and play with a nice nice upgrade over stock.
    The link provided for the led thread doesn't seem to cover the Phillips h4.
    I know this is a question with multiple opinions but is there a best LED choice...?

    The philips bulbs are $169.00 a pair. You could do a high quality HID setup for 83 bucks with everything you need.

    Would this be for both high and low beams ..?
    That seems great...
    Thanks for taking time replying

    Just the low, for the projectors. With good low beams you will find that you don’t use the high’s as much.

    I would do HID lows and Osram Nighbreaker bulbs in the high beams for the best output without doing an actual projector retrofit.

    This would be for a 2016 Trd off-road ...

    I just installed DDM Tuning Saber Pro LED bulbs in my highs and lows last week and they're great so far. 50 watt output so they're as bright if not brighter than HIDs. Be careful with what LED bulbs you get for your low beams, most are quite long and will require you to loosen the entire headlight assembly in order to get the bulb into place. The LED bulbs I used did not.
