    Wait until the 2020 led lights come out. That'll be cheap.

    Also, I don't believe tundras factory headlights are LED. I could be wrong

    Since you broke down the pricing, I’m intrigued. There’s probably more demand for the Tacoma TRD Pro headlights, but still.

    The SR5’s don’t, but the more expensive trims do.

    Probably a very limited production which drives prices up, plus healthy Toyota/dealer profit on top, IMO. Otherwise there is nothing really special about them besides the inner color.

    If you think that's expensive. Hit a deer in my other car, the whole drivers side light assembly exploded. The headlight assembly for that car costs 1500 just for one. That doesn't include the ballasts, bulbs, control modules... it's basically 2500 for one full thing. Luckily the deer didnt get the other light or the car probably would've been totaled

    Yea, my 2014 Corvette headlight enclosure was $1200 back in 2014. I’m sure they are higher now.

    Must be low production since the clear/chrome Tacoma headlights with DRL is between $400-$1000 for the set. Getting mixed results from google. Still double the price for black is robbery.

    Try finding a 911 Turbo headlight......the "Golden Unicorn".......they are crazy expensive.

    If you internals are good then look at Copart...you may or may not find one.

    Not sure if you are looking at a Tundra or a Tacoma.
