Why Upgrade from OEM Tail Lights?

Upgrading from your OEM tail lights is a big step in upgrading the look of your Toyota 4Runner but why do you need to upgrade your tail lights in the first place? The OEM Toyota 4Runner tail light is a good looking light from factory but it lacks the light output and style that many 4Runner owners are looking for. Luckily aftermarket companies like Alpharex and Morimoto have produced some great looking tail lights that significantly improve light output while also having their own unique style that is sure to turn heads.

Now, let's see why these three Toyota 4Runner owners chose the tail lights they did for their build!

Alpharex Luxx Series Tail Lights (@Photo4Roamer)

I love my Alpharex tail lights because of the shape of the DRL and turn signal. It’s really unique and from both the side and head on it looks pretty aggressive with a nice dark red color and really dark smoked housing.

It helped black mine out a lot from the OEM and the sequence In the turn signal is pretty sweet.

Morimoto XB Tail Lights (@4RunnerNate)

I am running the Morimoto XB LED Tail Lights! They were the first aftermarket tails I put on my rig over 3-4 years ago and I haven’t had the heart to switch it up! 

I went with them because I feel like they were one of the first aftermarket tails to hit the market and the only ones that I actually really liked! I have always wanted and love the smoked out look and these have a sequential turn signal that I think is so sweet!

Install was obviously super easy plug and play and so that made getting them that much easier of a choice!

4Runner Lifestyle Stealth Tail Lights (@SLCRunner)

I love my stealth tail lights because they remind me of the Ford Raptor tail lights. The DRL is super clean and simple. They also have a start up sequence that is satisfying and gives my 4Runner a more modern look.

The last little bit of chrome on my 4Runner was in my tail lights and I have always wanted to get rid of that. With the help of these tail lights, I was able to complete my 4Runner with a dark aestetic that I was going for.

The install was super easy too. Only a few small bolts and then I plugged them in and they worked right away!
