You nailed it. Thatís precisely why Iím upgrading bulbs only and leaving housings intact.

This website should be of interest: www.ImportYeti.com, it confirms all your suspicions about the same vendor supplying multiple ďUS brandsĒ.

I dont know how you took my post as having anything to do with race or culture. I am asian myself and an active member of an organization that is working against AAPI hate.

My intention was to shine the light on the origin of products so that people can be informed when they buy said products. Some people like to buy things because they look cool and thats fine. I would just be realistic about expectations around longevity and actual lighting performance.

Apologies, i just read too much into it when people have something bad to say and linking it with alibaba, china Etc.
I'm also asian and a active member of an organization working against AAPI hate over here in the east coast. Best of luck out there! Its like a rodeo over here.

I agree with most. I am Chinese myself and yes, there is a lot of cheap China made products; keyword CHEAP. I haven't seen any nice looking taillights, but looks wise this would rank the highest with what's out there. HUGE fan of the Morimoto headlights, but not so much on the tail lights.

Kustom54 has a pretty sick housing for the headlights, 14-19 Toyota 4Runner "AB6" Retrofit but I have no information and experience with them.

Personally, I was super stoked to order the Morimoto Gen 2s BUT once I was told about possible condensation issues, I decided not to mess around with the head lights (esp mine is a 2021 and it would be purely for looks as the performance is inferior). I live in a place where it usually rains 300 days of the year
