LED Headlights in a 1st Gen Toyota 4Runner

LED Headlights (Pair): Check Todays Price
H4 Wiring Harness: Check Todays Price

In this episode of SnailTrail4x4 we install LED headlights into a 1st Gen Toyota 4Runner. The first gen Toyota 4Runners came with halogen bulbs that come out entirely as one housing, You cannot remove just the bulb. So when installing LEDs, you have to replace the entire housing. We found these on Amazon and thought we should give him a try, we are pleased with the outcome.

The installation was simple, we needed to remove the old headlights and to do so we removed the battery to give us the room. There is plenty of room on the driver side, so you do not need to remove any additional Parts there. We got an H4 LED wiring kit from online that will power all of the LEDs from one side of the headlights using the two relays. LED headlights consume considerably less power than the halogen bulbs that were in there before.

The hardest part of this installation was not breaking the clips on the front grill so be extremely careful when removing those clips.

Tools Required: 10 and 12 mm sockets, socket wrench, philips screwdriver, electrical tape, zip ties, drill and some spare bolts to mount the relays
