Face lift on a 2010 4Runner SR5, high beam issue

I picked up a 2010 4Runner SR5. It had been stolen and used to run folks and pot through the desert. When I picked it up, it had lots of brush scratches and some from and rear bumper damage. I decided to do a 2014 and later facelift with new bumpers, front and rear. New headlights (2016 model head lights, fog lights, new 2016 model head unit and some other odds and ends. Also installed some Bilstein 5100s all around and some 2019 model wheels.

I decided to have it all repainted. It is finally almost finished and it looks like it is ready for SEMA. The paint work is stunning. It looks incredible.

I have a few items to dial in, including the center console lights not working (issue with the fuse box in the driver's footwell, maybe bad fuse that melted part of the fuse box). I noticed that the high beams work when used to flash, but when the steering wheel high and low lever is pushed forward to turn on the high beams, nothing happens. The other lights all seem to work as they should, low beams, blinkers, brake lights and fog lights.

Any ideas? My first thought was that it might be a high beam/low beam lever. Again, when the lever is used to flash the high beams, they work great.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

EDIT: and just like that the high beams are working again. Not sure what was going on, but they work perfectly.

One last glamor shot. Updated new takeoff wheels installed. I love the updated front end. Much more aggressive looking than the 2010 version. All in it was probably around $500 for the bumper ($200)and head lights ($100). I did have to buy a few new brackets, undercover and trim pieces. The 2016 head unit was around $150 as I recall. I needed a few harness pieces. Easy install. I have a short on the center console lights (radio, temp controls and gear shift lights). Blown fuse in the fuse box under the driver's side dash. Hopefully that will be sorted this weekend.

For those of you that are wondering what it takes to do a facelift on the 2010-2013 4Runner there is a great write up by Kevin Smith on Trail4R.com

5th Gen 4Runner Bumper Conversion, 2014+ Bumper Swap Install

There are also a couple of really good videos on Youtube.

Here is the parts list:

Parts List:
Trail Bumper # 52119-35914
Trail Valance, Silver # 53901-35240
Trail Valance, Black # 53901-35250
Valance Retainers x13 # 75392-35220, NAPA # 665-5135 (Same as Fog Light)
SR5 Bumper # 52119-35912
Bumper Reinforcement # 52021-35140
Reinforcement Extension, Left # 52026-60050
Reinforcement Extension, Right # 52025-60050
Energy Absorber # 52611-35040
Headlight Right # 81130-35541, TYC # 20-9511-00-1
Headlight Left # 81170-35571, TYC # 20-9512-00-1
OE projectors and light pattern are better than TYC
Headlight Grommet x2 # 90189-05142
Can use NAPA # 665-1050 (nylon nut) and # 665-2196 (screws)
Support Brackets
Right # 52102-35100
Left # 52103-35110
Center # 52521-35060
Side Retainers
Right # 52115-35151
Left # 52116-35151
Fog Light Assembly
Right # 81210-12230
Left # 81220-12230
Fog Light Bezel
Right # 52127-35100
Left # 52128-35080
Fog Light Retainers x2 # 75392-35220, NAPA # 665-5135 (Current chrome strip has a few)
Grille
Upper Grill # 53101-35080?? (Can come painted in factory colors)
Lower Grill # 53112-35060
PARTS YOU CAN MODIFY INSTEAD OF BUY (SEE BELOW FOR INSTRUCTIONS HOW):
Fender Liner
Right # 53875-35150
Left # 53876-35150
2 Wire Turn Socket # 90075-60028
Or Dorman # 86424 (small spade terminals)
Dorman # 02254 (3/4 bypass cap)
Deflectors
Right # 53293-35020
Left # 53294-35020

You can save some $ on one piece bumpers without the valances and installing used parts. I found a front bumper and rear bumper for $200 each but ended up having to swap the rear for a valance-style bumper due to a broken counting tab. I also found used headlights and fog lights. Saved a ton not having to buy new from the dealer.

There aren't many newer style 4Runners around the San Diego wrecking yards so the pickings are limited.

Overall the 4Runner turned out great, drives well (the Blistein 5100s are a huge upgrade over the blown out Monroe quick struts) and is good for at least another 150,000 miles. I didn't keep an accurate count on the money I spent doing the make over. It was a fun project. Due to its history it is dubbed the "420."

I also have a 2010 SR5. I like the light upgrade. Did those headlights match the hood, fender lines, and that grill trim piece like the originals? I gotta do this!

it all fit together really well. Hood was not altered. Just the bumper and the top piece on bumper with the Toyota logo on it. The mounting brackets on each fender and the mounting brackets behind the bumper and grill. Overall, it was a pretty simple upgrade. Thanks to all of those that had done this before. Super happy with the results.

Very nice. I am about to do the 2014+ from the bumper swap on my 2012 SR5. I will post pics when done, just need the time to swap everything. As for the high beams not working. Sounds like the headlight master switch may be bad if the highs flah but won't stay on.

Thank you. The head lights are now working perfectly. I have no idea what the glitch was, but they now work fine.
