    In case anyone was interested, I just found the KC 501's for $265.99 speed with no tax from Leonard Truck Accessories out of North Carolina. Slightly better than the 300-330 I was seeing everywhere else!

    Yup, $280 total and they shipped quick. Installation a breeze and first night test tomorrow morning.

    That's the price the ebay vendor advertised but a couple days after the purchase they messaged me and said it was out of stock for two weeks...

    I installed my KC G4 501's recently and needed to adjust the aim.

    Kind of amazed that only one screw is used to mount each one. I suppose one could drive another screw into the other tab if they felt the need.

    Was wondering why the Morimotos come with 2 screws in the box.. I guess that's why.

    Yea, but the rigid replace the stock fog light mounting spot for the square cutout. The kc lights go in the factory hole and use factory mounting.
    2 screws and 2 "tabs" on my 2nd gen.

    This is how it is on my 4Runner. I know with the Morimoto mounts, they use the same part for Tacomas, 4Runners and possibly other Toyotas. The mounting holes on the 4Runner are slightly offset compared to the Tacoma, so I can only use 1 screw to mount the lights. Maybe KC does the same.

    Very true. Now that I remember, the stock housing on the third gens is 2 tabs on one side and 1 screw on the other. So I assume the KCs follow that. It seems pretty secure. With the Pods, the two "tabs" are replaced by screws instead and then another screw on the opposite side.

    Wow for that price just do some Dually's and put Hella Color Shieldz on them. That looks like that ugly orange color that comes from LaminX.

    They match the Hellas behind the grill, and the new KC G4's.
