Why Retrofit Headlights?
For most people, stock headlights just aren't cutting it. The lack of brightness often turns into a safety issue, especially for those with vision problems. Retrofit headlights will drastically increase your visibility on the road without blinding others like you would with LED Bulbs in reflector housings.
Retrofitting also opens the door for tons of customization, allowing you to build headlights that fit in seamlessly with the build of your car or truck.
For those looking for extra bright projectors, check out our section on BxBuilt Bi-LED Projectors.
How hard are the headlights to install?
Very easy! Our headlights come with a wiring harness that plugs directly into your factory headlight plug/plugs and attaches to the battery. The only wiring required is to set up the halos how you want, which is as simple as splicing the halo power wires into the wire of the desired feature.
Do you have wiring guides?
Yes! We have install guides for every version of headlights!
What are halos? Why should I add halos to my build?
Halos are small circular tubes that house lighting. Halos sit inside the shroud (for rear halos) or around the shroud opening (for front halos). The basic type of halos used in retrofit headlight builds are switchback halos. Halos also come in RGB options.
Switchback halos will light up amber and white depending on what you wire them to. They can even act as turn signals, which is extra beneficial for those with aftermarket bumpers. Halos are also responsible for lighting up the shroud, which creates the desired look within your headlights.
RGB Halos will come with a bluetooth controller for your phone, allowing you to customize the look of your headlights further. They are still able to function as turn signals and running lights as well.
Front vs Rear Halos
Rear Halos create the backlit effect in a shroud. An example of a build with a rear halo is shown below.
Front Halos create a ring of light around the front of the projector. An example of a build with a a front halo (as well as a rear halo) is shown below
How hard are the grilles to install?
Very easy. We include a new set of clips with all 3rd gen 4Runner grilles that require them so you dont have to worry about breaking your old ones. If your grille has mounting tabs, we include new tabs. All that's required of you is to remove the old one and pop our new one in.
If you order a TRD Pro Grille, reusing the stock studs is recommended for the best fitment. We also include a few extra studs if you need them, as well as weatherstripping for grilles that use stock weatherstripping.
Are raptor lights hard to install?
No! We include a fuse tap with every set of raptor lights. This allows you to gain power for the raptor lights without any complex wiring.
