Sorry for my ignorance but I am not experienced at all in working on cars and from what I've seen and read, most people have to DIY build these projector retrofit.

They're complete headlights.

So it's just a matter of removing the stock headlight assembly and putting the new one back in, no other mods necessary like maybe wiring harness etc.?

Correct, remove headlights and install new ones and probably a harness.

Hi they are complete headlights with a morimoto wiring harness. The relay harness is what powers the LED Drivers for the projectors inside your new headlights. It will hook up to your batteries positive terminal as well as your driver side H4 oem headlight plug. Then behind each headlight you will need to remove/scratch off paint to screw down a ground screw location. After that, the rest is plug and play. We provide 7 days a week assistance direct on our social media pages via their DM and messaging features.

Not many know but our cars are a ground switched system. And also that we have 4 different wiring possibilities of our H4 plugs. 96-97, 98-00, 00.5-02 and DRL cars. one of the 3 main ones requires a de-pinning of the H4 harness, but it is a super simple task. Why toyota went with a negative switched high beam trigger is beyond us.

I actually prefer the ground-switched headlight systems. There's no need for a Motocontrol type wiring harness because the lowbeam stays powered @ highbeams so a standard relay harness can be used, just a matter of connecting the negative of the harness' "trigger" connection to a ground instead of the negative of the lowbeam connection.

My 1st-gen Tundra is ground-switched; unfortunately my 4Runner isn't but I figured out a way to run a standard harness by tapping into the DRL circuit (although I bypassed the actual DRL function many years ago)

Very good work brotha! The Tundra/Sequoia def work with standard h4 harnesses. However we have yet to find an affordable/generic (not that the motocontrol is expensive per say) and reliable harness that works with 3rd gen 4runners thats plug and play. And also reliable. Years ago when we began to offer our services we started with affordable/generic parts to get prices low. As we had issue after issue to deal with I made the choice to only use the most reliable stuff. Saved us thousands a year in warranty work, return shipping etc. Sure we dont sell $300.00 retrofits, but we are more than likely the most fairly priced company using higher end components.

Also we plan to be helping out other builders as soon as the world allows us by providing our own line of projectors and complete build kits. We spent a ton of money having our own Bi-LED projector setup designed after years of installing morimoto, nhk etc. Just really sucked that Corona Virus has put everything to a halt. We used a "Neutral White" LED system vs a "Cool white" thats used by everyone else which we felt was too blue for bad weather conditions. We also retained use of a much smaller and removable install stem for the beginner retrofitters, vs the massive D2s tube size of the Morimoto Bi-LED v2.0. And then we had that install stem cantered upwards to allow 3rd gen 4runners and many other reflector bowl platforms to not need as much vertical adjustment and shroud trimmer.

Here are some output shots of them from customers
