Given the expected life of the LEDís I also highly doubt these will burn out any time soon.
I didnít buy the DRLs just yet. I only bought the H11s for the lows so far and just got them delivered last night so I havenít even had a chance to try them yet. Traveling all day today, but hoping to install them tomorrow so I can use them this week. The instructions were kind of sparse, but it looked like there was a diagram showing rotating the orientation of the LEDs. Did you need to do that?

I am definitely interested in trying the DRL bulbs too if they hold up for you and others that have tried them, and as Bluesky pointed out, donít melt the housings, or wire sockets from the heat!

One simple test we can do... I have an infrared heat gun somewhere. If anyone has one and can hit their DRL halogen bulb for comparison please do. I chucked my OEM bulbs otherwise would test it myself. Will post temps for the plastic plug housing directly in back of bulb at 5 and 10 mins.

Ambient temp shown at time of testing the DRL temps. 5 mins was not significantly higher so waited 10 mins to show 10 deg elevation. Bulb back is cold to the touch at 10 mins constant on.

Needless to say, not concerned whatsoever. Will post when they burn out as promised.

Awesome. As you pointed out, halogen bulbs run really hot, so they probably get even hotter than that! In fact, Iíve read threads where the bulb sockets had actually melted with regular bulbs. Even mine had a burned look to them, so I replaced them.

Thank you for the review/link, I'm going to swap these out with my HID's which are a couple years old on my 07 limited.

I installed them today, and tried them a bit this evening. Definitely brighter and whiter. Canít wait to try them on some really dark roads. I didnít have a chance to really see what they can do unfortunately because of time constraints, but I did notice that my cutoff appears a bit too low, so Iíll have to check/adjust that. I also noticed that my fogs look crappy, yellow and dim now! Guess Iíll have to convert those too now...

I too have cougar motors LEDs, and while theyre better than incandescent, there's definitely some room for improvement.
Just got them installed and tested. Significantly brighter. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them over the cougar motor LED's.

Ok... Me too! I just ordered the low and high beams. I'll add my review after running them for a while.

When you look at the bulbs on Amazon, you will see at the right side there is a field where it says bulb size, or type (canít remember). Click that and use the pull down to select the appropriate number for the other bulbs you need. For example, I wanted the 9006 fog bulbs, and found them there. I may eventually get the high beams too, but the lows and fogs are my priority since they are the most used. Iíve had to use the highs on poorly lit highways and backroads though due to the poor lighting of the stock low beams, which is why Iím upgrading those, but the highs seem to work just fine for my use at this time. Not saying I wonít convert them, just didnít want to drop $100 on bulbs all at once, especially since I want to do the DRLs too.

Good to know. I am surrounded by poorly lit highways and backroads.

Ok the headlights work great, but I noticed my fogs do shine scattered light and some of it up high. So I would not recommend driving with fog lights on while driving behind other vehicles.

Yep. As I described earlier, I only use the fogs when absolutely necessary. They are basically high beams now.

What year is your truck? Mine is an Ď04 with the projector type fogs, so I was hoping theyíd be fine with the projectors. I believe that the Ď06+ went back to reflector type fogs, correct?

I just got the lows and highs for my 08 4Runner. I can only compare them to the basic Sylvanias I have been using but I am impressed with light output. If they last at least a year, I will be very happy with them.
