Hello Gentlemen,

I've been trying to put LEDs in my 60 for quite some time now. A while ago, I bought some "Lifetime LEDS," only to find out about the reverse polarity in the headlight wiring in the 60s.

I've done my research, and it seems that the Truck-Lite LED Headlights are the only LED Headlights on the market that work with reverse polarity (I confirmed this with a lady on Truck-Lite Tech support today).

These are the headlights I'm talking about: https://www.amazon.com/Truck-Lite-2...07665765&sr=8-2&keywords=truck+lite+headlight


But after scouring the forum years back, I've been unable to find out conclusively whether these truck-lites are, in fact, plug-and-play. I'm not to wiring-savvy and it's probably best for me to do a more simple install.

Does anybody have experience with truck-lites and whether they are plug and play in the FJ60s?


As always, thank you!

LED headlights improved night and rain driving safety 100%. Or 200%.

I don't have that truck anymore, but my experience with LED headlights has led me to purchase Trucklites for my FJ62 daily driver and JW Speakers for my soon-to-be-daily driver HJ61. That is a LOT of cash but I feel that for me, the ability to see and be seen is the most important factor in driving a 30 year old truck in modern traffic.

If you’re still listening... I installed these on my HZJ73 this weekend, and while they work, the connectors are such a tight fit that the metal tabs won’t go all the way into the receptacle. Did you have this issue, or did they plug in so that everything is flush? Thanks.

I didn't have this issue coz I did change mine ( factory connectors ) while ago for ceramic ones .. in your case I would just trim the spades a bit to make them go complete in ..
