Okay, so when these LED Headlights and foglights came out about a year or 2 ago, or whenever they got popular, didn't think too much of them, just that they were bright. Now I really don't mind the look, I think they're kinda goodlooking.. What exactly do I have to do get my headlights/foglights LED... All I hear about Conversion Kits, and this and that...I just have no clue about any of it... Someone want to enlighten me briefly on what I need to do? New headlights, new bulbs, whats up...
DDM Tuning Sells the best price/Valued kits that I have found... I have not used them However they are who I am buying my Next kit from when I Decide I want High and Low Beams.
You need bulbs and Ballasts... They Make Single beams and High/Low beam Kits... The single beam kits are mostly plug and play unless you have flicker problems then you have to use a relay.
35W Kits (the best ones)
The Temperatures (Light Color) Is measured in kelvin and after about 6000K the light output starts to go down... Also Blue when it rains reflects off the water and makes the road look extra dark but your surroundings are bright.
3000K Is yellow and good for fogs
4300K OEM HID Color
*5000K Bright White ( I have this color and I love it) It is also the brightest color
*6000K Slight blueish cast to the light
8000K Blue White
13000K Purplish Blue
You can also find colors Like Green and Pink in some places

Nah, BDM hit it on the nail..Yeah I meant HID, sorry... Was just looking on eBay for LED reverse lights lol. Yeah thanks for breaking it down for me BTM... So Ballasts and Bulbs you say, yeah I like the bright WHITE look, looks real good.. So just bulbs and ballasts - that link didnt work for me for some reason...Have a direct link to a kit that I would need or another site? Appreciate it guys... Learn something everyday ha
10-4. Thanks again...Have any pics of your lights BTM? I see your avatar, have anymore on your profile? Parking lots/fogs, both, etc, so I can check out how they look on a ranger. I know some of most of yall ****ers do
ive got 8000k heads/fogs, i LOVE them. took e me about two hours to adjust my headlights so i didnt have a horrible cut off but they are pretty good now. i got my from ebay seller HID4U. killer customer service he had replaced a ballest and a bulb that had issues with no problem.
only pic i have that doesnt have horrible glare on it.
There's a lot of "dont put HID's in a halogen housing" threads on here...and I can see how that makes sense, but see how they work for you. I really like mine in the truck but the beam pattern was horrible in the car and I went back to halogen. I think it was the shape of the housing that made it so bad.
Here's an HID Kelvin temp chart for a reference. I'm running 6000K's in the truck and 8000K's in the quad.
Liked em so much I put a set in the quad too lol
Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand things with alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures. -Ash
On motorcycles we found by accident if you remove the center reflector in the housing and buy bulbs without the silver tip you get some big time lighting without buying expensive light kits. Always reinstall the rubber boot at the plug or you can melt the housing.
