      Video Review & Installation

      Hey guys. So today, we're checking out the JDM headlights with the matte black housing and the clear lens fitting all 2012 to 2015 Toyota Tacomas. So, if you've noticed that your headlights are starting to get some wear and tear, you're looking for a refresh to the front end of your Tacoma, then this option is gonna be a great choice to take a look into. Now, this is gonna be a direct replacement for the factory housing and this is gonna reuse the bulb. So, this will be great for anybody who has damaged a headlight and is looking to get a replacement, as well as an upgrade when it comes to the styling, or you have the typical fogging on the lens, you're looking for better lighting performance, and you're just looking for that refresh like I mentioned before. Now, this is gonna come with that matte black housing in the clear lens. The clear lines is going to increase the lighting performance, especially if you have that fogging on your factory headlights. And the matte black housing is gonna add a very stealthy look to the front end of the Tacoma in comparison to the chrome that you're used to with the factory lights. Now, these will keep all of the lights in the same location. So this is more or less gonna be a factory-style replacement or a factory-style upgrade. It's gonna look a little bit more stealthy, and of course, a lot more new in comparison to the factory lights. So overall, this is gonna be a great choice if you're just looking for a housing and your bulbs are in good shape.Now when it comes to pricing, these are gonna come in at roughly $200. And in my personal opinion, I think you're getting a solid light for that price. Now in comparison to some other choices available on the page, a lot of other options are going to come with lighting included. They may not include all the lights, they may swap over the turn signal, but usually, they are gonna include lighting, regardless of if it is halogen or LED. Now there are some options available for the housing by itself. Usually, those are going to either take a different approach when it comes to the interior styling of the light, or they may have a different lens. So instead of a clear lens, they may have a smoked lens, or they may have a chrome housing instead of the black one that you see here. So, it kind of comes down to your personal preference when it comes to design. But if you are a fan of the factory-style headlight, you're just looking for a refresh, you're looking for something a little bit more stealthy, then this is gonna be right up your alley. When it comes to install, I'm gonna give this a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter taking you about an hour to get the job done. The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a quarter-inch ratchet, a 10-millimeter deep socket, and a 10-millimeter shallow socket, a soft pry tool, and a trim removal tool. Starting with the hood open, our first step to this install is to take off our grille. I'm gonna use a trim removal tool to take off the two clips that are holding on either side of the grille and then we can use a 10-millimeter socket to remove the hardware that's holding in the rest of it. So in either corner of the grille, we're gonna have a small clip. I'm gonna use a trim removal tool or a clip removal tool. You could also use a flathead screwdriver, but we're gonna do this on either side. Next, we're gonna remove the two 10-millimeter screws that are holding in the top of the grille. I'm gonna use the 10-millimeter socket and my impact wrench. You could also use a ratchet.At this point, we can give a firm pull-back on the grille and completely disconnect it. What we're gonna do now is remove this lower plastic trim piece, right above the bumper and right below our headlight. There's gonna be a clip on the inside. So I'm just gonna take a soft pry tool, and pry on the inside, and then there is gonna be a little seam over on the right-hand side or the outer side of the trim piece. We're just gonna stick our soft pry tool in and turn, because it's gonna pop out this way. So our next couple steps are going to include peeling back the inner wheel liner so we can access a bolt on the side of our headlight here that's behind our bumper. Now we're gonna remove two bolts on the lower part of the bumper and one clip on the inside of the wheel well, so we can peel back that wheel well to access that bolt there, and then, we can remove the rest of the hardware to take out our headlight. So first, we're gonna take out those two bolts at the bottom of the bumper. So right at the corner part of the bottom part of our bumper here, we're gonna have two 10-millimeter screws. I'm gonna take a 10-millimeter socket and remove those. So at this point, what we're gonna do is use our trim removal tool, either the soft pry tool or the trim removal tool that we used earlier. We're just gonna peel back that inner liner. Now there should be a clip here. You can use this trim removal tool in order to remove it. We are missing ours, so I'm just gonna pull this back and tuck it behind our tire here. So this is gonna be really difficult to see on camera. But if you're laying directly underneath your bumper, right above the foglight, there's going to be a nut and a bolt that's connecting the bumper to the bumper cover. And then, right above that is going to be that headlight bolt. Now, we wanna take out the headlight bolt. So, I'm gonna take a 10-millimeter socket and my ratchet and we can go ahead and remove that. After that 10-millimeter bolt on the side is removed, what we're gonna do is remove the 10-millimeter bolts up top or the 10-millimeter screws that are holding in these 2 arms on the top of our headlight. I'm gonna use a 10-millimeter socket and my impact wrench. What we're gonna do at this point is grab a soft pry tool if you want to, you don't necessarily have to. But I'm just going to release the two arms off of those plastic retainer clips up top. That'll kind of loosen up the headlight for us, so we can pop that in place.So once we maneuver our headlight out of place, we're gonna have a couple connections on the back that we need to remove. So I'm gonna just press down on those and pull back. So before we hop into the install, I did wanna step down and tell you guys a little bit more about this new light, especially compared to our factory one, show you some of the similarities and differences while they are sitting next to each other on the table. Now starting off with the housing, as you can see on our factory headlight, we're gonna have a chrome housing on the inside, that's gonna give you the very stock, classic look. We're also gonna have a clear lens on the front. Now as you can see it, this has taken a lot of wear and tear. These lenses usually do and fogging up is very common. So switching over to something that has a more clear lens or a brand new lens is probably gonna be why you are looking at these. And also just a big upgrade for the front end of your Tacoma when it comes to the styling but also when it comes to the visibility, because this fogging can take away from some of your lighting performance as well. Now as you can see, when moving over to our new light, we're going to have a brand new clear lens, this is kind of crystal clear, so that is going to increase your lighting performance, especially if you have taken some weathering like ours has. And this is also going to have a nice black housing. We're still gonna have a chrome reflector, which is gonna give you the same lighting performance benefits that you'd see out of your factory light. However, this is gonna have a black housing, giving you a more stealthy look to the front end of your Tacoma in comparison to your factory headlights. Now what I would like to mention is that this is just the housing. This is not gonna come with any of the bulbs. But what I do like is that it keeps the bulb location in generally the same place. So this is set up very similar to the factory one. So if you're a fan of the factory style setup, as far as the internals are concerned, where the high beam and low beam, where the marker light, where the turn signal are placed, you're getting all of that with this new light, but you will be swapping over the bulbs. So, this is more or less just an upgrade when it comes to the overall housing, when it comes to styling, and even performance when we're talking about the lenses there.Now this is also going to come with the little bells and whistles that you would see on your factory light. You're gonna have that seal right up at the top. It's gonna come with all of the new hardware, as far as the adjustment on the back. And you're also going to get some retainer clips on the side to make sure that it is staying in place when it's mounted up to your Tacoma, but we will be swapping over the bulb. So overall, this is going to be a pretty big upgrade when it comes to the visual aesthetic of the front end of your Tacoma and also when it comes to lighting performance. So what do you say we swap over these bulbs and get this installed? So now that we have our headlight flipped over, I recommend that you put it on a clean microfiber towel or anything that is clean to make sure that you're protecting the lens. On the factory one, it might not matter, but on the new one, it definitely will. So we can start by taking out our bulbs. I'm gonna start with the marker light. All we have to do is twist and pull back, put that to the side. Same thing with our turn signal, twist and pull back. Now for our headlight, the high beam and the low beam, we're gonna take this seal off, and there is gonna be a pin that we have to remove. It's gonna lift the bulb up and out. Then we can move over to our new headlight. Just like the factory one, there is a seal on top. I'm just gonna pull this back, put that to the side. There is going to be a large sticker that we're gonna take off, that just protects the inside. And then, we're gonna have factory-style attachment here. So we can pull that back, pop our bulb into place. There are three tabs, you wanna align them. That's going to sit down in like that. And then, we're gonna take this hook and hook that back into place right underneath that little step there. We're gonna take our new seal and we're gonna pop that back into place making sure that that connector is surrounded by that seal. Now that the headlight, high beam and low beam bulb is in place, we're gonna take our factory turn signal bulb, pop that in. You just wanna line up the correct tabs, give it a good twist, then we're gonna take our marker light, line that one up as well, make sure that it sits flush. You can give it a good twist.Once all of our bulbs are in our new light, what we're gonna do is head back over to our truck. So before we mount our headlight back up, we do need to plug in our harnesses. So, I'm gonna plug in our marker harness over on the side. You should hear a click. I'm gonna plug in our headlight, the high beam and low beam. And then, we're gonna plug in our turn signal over on the side as well. Once those are all clicked in, we can maneuver the headlight back into place. All right. Now once that's in place, what we're gonna do is secure it on the top with two screws, the one on the side, and then we can start to button everything up. I'm gonna take the 2 screws from the factory, pop those in up the top and secure them down with a 10-millimeter socket. Then we're gonna head underneath and secure it over on the side. Next, we're gonna take that 10-millimeter factory bulb, we're gonna reach up and secure this side of our headlight. It should be pretty much lined up. You may have to push up on the headlight in order to get that completely lined up. You can set it into the side. So once that's started in, we're gonna tighten that up with a 10-millimeter socket that we used to remove it. And then, once that's in there, we can pull our inner fender liner back into place, and we're gonna secure down with our factory hardware. Then we're gonna tighten that up with our 10-millimeter socket. We can reattach this trim piece by lining that tab up and pressing it in, lining up the clips on the front, giving it a good snap. So our last step after both headlights are installed is to reinstall our grille. So you wanna line up the grille, and then give it a good press to pop it back into place. Then we can pop our clips into either corner. After the clips are in either corner, we can secure down the two10-millimeter screws with our 10-millimeter socket, then we're gonna close up our hood. So that is going to wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe for more videos and products just like this. And always keep it right here at
