    Hi, I inquired at my dealer how much the 2020 led headlights on the pro were as I was thinking putting them on my 2020 sport. The dealer told me that they won't fit because the wiring is totally different. Is that really the case? Just curious.

    Yes it requires an aftermarket harness to work, they are also $1200 for the set as opposed to a $485 option from the factory.

    They are wrong, there is a whole mega thread about this, the wiring / harness is different from a non LED 2020 factory spec'd truck and an LED factory spec'd. Its not a direct swap / plug and play.

    They told me they made the swap several times, no issues, and stock harness in the SR5 - so who is correct, the Toyota dealer or Tacoma World ??

    Really dude, read the mega thread, I'll bet you my truck you can't just swap them, you need the harness. JFC, yes dealers are wrong all the time. Real helpful by the way, let's give OP the wrong info, so he spends $1200 on headlights that he can't use without the aftermarket harness, etc.

    Its not as easy as just swapping the headlight assembly. I inquired with a dealer how much it would be to have the truck I was going to buy be upgraded to the $495 LED headlamp option and was quoted $3000. That would have included LED headlamp assemblies, wiring, hardware and LED fog lights.

    You need a harness (a member sells them on here for about $80 if memory serves) and it's about $1500 for both headlights depending on where you buy them from
