If you know the part numbers, yes you could most likely just purchase the correct connectors. I have so far struck out with the part numbers for that specific connector as I was going to make pigtail harnesses that have been promised for months by others but never delivered. Best guess is previous poster’s ambitions outweighed their ability to get the correct materials so for now this is the only viable solution.

it doesn't look like Toyota sells that plug without the headlight itself unfortunately. You could possibly get one in a junkyard..

However, I am not sure where to get such a harness for the new connectors that Toyota used on these lights...

Still looking to see if someone has figured this out or if I can just wire up a relay to auxiliary high beams some how…

Any thoughts?

Well I took the plunge and bought a set of Pro LED's. Alex told me I could do some extra steps to set up the high beams. Otherwise, he said I could just use them like the non Pro LED's. I don't think I trust my lack of skills to do the extra steps for the high beams. These also came with the performance LED fogs that were supposedly an upgrade option. I paid a little extra as Alex did the extra work. I will see how the Diode Dynamics fogs look with the OEM LED's. So either the performance OEM fogs or Diode Dynamics fogs will be for sale soon. After having the Alpharex and returning them for lack of quality and light output, hopefully these work well.

Limiteds do, yes, regardless of the color or the chrome.

Has anyone with factory LEDs been flashed by oncoming traffic while on low beams? Got this a few times since taking delivery.

Curious if my case is just a fluke or others have had theirs set to the “high side of normal” from the factory.

Just out of curiosity, which Diode Dynamics fogs do you have? I'm assuming you have the SS3 model, but do you have the Sport, Pro or Max version? I've done a lot of research and testing and even the lowest performing DD SS3 - the Sport - is head and shoulders above just about anything else. The Pros are awesome and the Max - which I'm currently running - is absolutely unbelievable.

Pros. They are awesome with the halogens which are basically useless even with bulb upgrade. Thats why I'm spending the money on the '21 LED upgrade.

Are they amber or white?
I'd definitely push you toward the OEM Rigid fog lights if they are amber, and then happily take those crappy SS3s off your hands.

The DD SS3's - especially the Pro or Max versions - totally blow the OEM Rigids away. Here's a very exhaustive test / comparison:

No adjustment needed and no flashes on my end, though I don’t drive too much at night. TDDORP.

Yup, I had the Pros, then upgraded to the Max. You cannot go wrong with either.

As for going from the OEM Halogens to the OEM LEDs, I have the OEM LEDs in my 2021 and am not impressed. The SS3's (fortunately) fill in the empty areas. Unless the OEM halogens are truly pathetic - which I hear they are - you may be disappointed.

Not a surprise, from the looks of it Toyota threw in a low end LED projector which is pretty disappointing. After my locker install I'm going to be tackling a headlight retrofit with Morimoto's new M-LED 2.0 projector which is one of the first LED based projectors that has matched and exceed HID projector performance. We will see how that turns out.
