Auxito 9005 LED

So like many others I try to find the best lighting for my 4Runner. I had a 2017 that was all Halogen and disappointing. I also have a 2017 Tacoma and a 2019 Highlander. I have not been a fan of aftermarket LED's as I understand their limitations. I have done the H-9 low beam conversion in all of my other cars as they have projector style headlights. That has helped.

I am now in a 2021 Off Road Premium with LED lows and fogs. They are very nice. But Halogen highs? As a result I was willing to try LEDs.

Auxito reached out to me and asked me to try their DDY-13, 9005 replacements.

The lights themselves seem well built and come with a small cooling fan and a module to eliminate canbus errors (I had none).

The LED's look like they are positioned to imitate a Halogen filament. I won't bore anyone with the installation as most on here can either do it or Google/YouTube it.

The lights also come with extra O Rings and a small Allen wrench so you can properly position the bulb and so you will have a secure fit in the 9005 housing. All pretty self-explanatory. Fit and finish good and installation was easy. So far so good.

As for performance I have attached pictures.

Auxito LED compared to stock 9005's

The Auxito LEDs appear brighter and definitely whiter than the factory 9005's
As far as performance, I live in the city but will be testing them out in a couple of weeks in the mountains.

I'm glad that they better match the factory LED's and I'm hoping that they will throw as far as the factory halogens. I'm not as much worried about scatter and blinding others as these are high beams and should only be used when there is not another car present. I will report back as to my opinion on performance.

As far as durability, only time will tell. It is nice that it has a two year warranty.

Auxito sent me these to test but I did not receive any other compensation to do this. I told them that I would post my honest opinion. They seem responsive so hopefully they handle their customers that way.

For the price on their web site these seem like a pretty decent deal for a high beam LED. They may be worth a look.

YMMV

Auxito sent me some different 9005 than yours.

In your review, you forgot to show how it looks like in DRL mode? And how bright or dim it is?

I don't usually run it with the DRL's on since they aren't automatic but I can do that later. I'll be in the mountains in a couple of weeks and I'll update with a pic. Pics are tough in the city as other lights wash out headlights and its hard to tell with pictures. The lights are definitely whiter so that's nice. The real test for me since they are high beams is the throw.

Updating. I am up in Yosemite and driving the roads at night. These lights are really bright. They compliment the factory LED Low Beams and Fog lights (My fogs are wired to work with the high beams).
They throw far down the road and if there is any scatter it just adds to the front throw. It is a very clean light and I will keep them in.
