ENGINEERED FITMENT: Morimoto's A-Pillar kit for the 2003-2009 Lexus GX470 has been through numerous rounds of design, prototyping and testing directly on the truck to ensure perfect compatibility. Everything lines up with pre-existing mounting points to create an installation that is truly modification-free. Guaranteed. Yes, we agree this is a basic requirement, but you wouldn't believe the poor fitment we encountered from other well-known brands during development. It was mind blowing.
ALL WEATHER: The white-output version is ideal for all-around visibility. For those who desire optimal output in rain, snow, or fog--the Yellow-output version will slay in shady weather. Morimoto has opted for Phosphor-Converted Yellow LEDs that produce yellow light at the origin, which is the most effective way to penetrate through particles in the air without compromising output (Filtering white light through a yellow lens achieves the look, but no actual performance benefit in poor weather).
WIRING & CABLE MANAGEMENT: No sloppy wiring allowed. We have incorporated several mounting locations and cable routing clips on the stem of the bracket to direct the input wiring from your LED pods down into the engine bay. From there, you can plug n play with Morimotos switched relay wire harness for a clean and reliable install.
PERFORMANCE: Just like the brackets, every element of the patent-pending 4Banger LED pod light is proprietary. LucidShape was used to optimize performance around the most modern, lumen-dense LEDs from Nichia and Osram. Optics are produced according to world-class standards. Thermal dynamics have been optimized using SolidWorks. The 4Banger is available with three industry-leading beam patterns to suit every need. Wide/Fog, Spot, and Combo.
POWER UP: The Morimoto 4Banger LED Pods have been developed from the ground up to set a new standard in their segment, and the same goes for the included wire harness. If you want the best, bingo. Not one component on the harness was overlooked for the sake of cost or simplicity. Triple sealed proprietary 4-pin relay with hanger. Proprietary over-molded inline fuse holder with 20A mini fuse. DT06-2S female outputs with dual seals. Stainless steel power and ground terminals. Proprietary M-Spec push button switch with Yellow-LED backlight.
STREET LEGALITY: When aimed properly, the Spot and Combo beams comply with SAE J581 standards for an for auxiliary high beam. With a standard -4 degree aim, the beam pattern produced by both the NCS and HXB Wide Beam models has been verified compliant with the latest SAE F regulation for use as a street-legal fog light. You can see the test data in the "Compatibility" section below. Some localities require auxiliary lights to be covered for everyday driving. To comply, the optional Blackout Covers are designed to fit all Morimoto 4Banger LED Pods, and are a friction + clip fit that installs with ease, and can be removed in seconds.
