Thumbs up Upgraded lighting for your T4R

Lets see your upgraded lighting on your 5G 4Runner. I want to see upgraded headlights, retrofits, and output pics!

I would also like to see how you have all added additional light pods and/or light bars, and the output they produce for you.

I am sure there are more of you out there who are as crazy about lights as I am, and you have all probably tried to compare the Rigid, Diode Dynamics, Baja Designs, and Extreme LED lights to other, less costly options. That being said, let's see what you have come up with!

I run Baja Designs fog lights and LP6's in the front and S2s in the rear. I don't have anything to use to share my pics on here but you can check out my Instagram for light pics! (Mrluilou on instagram as well)

How is the high beam performance with the Bi LED and HiLens projectors?

I found them on FB marketplace from a gentleman about 3.5 hours from me. They have some light scratches on one, but not broken or anything. I paid $390 shipped for both which is extremely uncommon. Iíd say youíre looking at anywhere from 800-1400 for a set.

If you're looking for a perfect set of 2021 OEM halogen headlight housings, I have a set that were removed at 300 miles. PM me if interested.

Baja Designs LP-9 pro behind the grille
Baja Designs fog lights
Baja Designs S1 Amber Ditch lights

LED License plate lights
Iíve yet to instal Baja Designs S2 flush mount backup lights

Shit got out of hand fast

I was thinking about adding 2 x Baja Designs ONX6+ 10Ē light bars in the upper grille. Every time I see them online they look crazy bright!

Does anyone have any experience with them?

I have run a wide variety of lights over the years, Lifetime LED, Extreme LED, Baja Designs, Rigid, Stedi and some Amazon throw away stuff.
Of all those the best dollar to performance for me is the Stedi lights. Stedi is from Australia but ships worldwide. They are a high quality lighting supplier. Very well made stuff and affordable. The setup in the picture I attached ran me about $550 shipped. They use DHL and I had everything 4 days after I ordered. They do come with mounting brackets although the ones I used are not from them. The light cubes come with a yellow blue and black cover, or obviously you can use no cover if you like. They are known for their spot lights which are killer. I kinda wish I had thrown a couple of those on instead of all the cubes but I was unemployed at the time. I would say the quality of the housings and reflectors are similar to Rigid. I've run them since January and I'm very pleased.
I'd say they are worth a look if you don't want to pay for Rigid or BD but want an upgrade from Extreme LED, Diode Dynamics or Cali Rasied.
I would love to run BD but one light was more than all six from Stedi including shipping
