Are you talking about the one-piece halo/projector headlights with LEDs from Ebay?

No the plug and play kit that still uses the 9007 bulb.

Interesting. I haven't seen anyone on here running those. Try them out and let us know what you think.

I ordered the kit and got them in today. HUGE difference compared to the stock bulb. Plug and play, had them installed in under 15 minutes. Great upgrade.

Sounds like a good upgrade. Any update regarding their performance and reliability? Uploading some pics would be nice also.

Post some pictures of the light output from 20-30' away. A lot of these kits produce a ton of glare and project the light pattern differently.

Projector retro fit FTW!

I don't know to post pics, do I have to upload them to a hosting site first? Well I've had them in for a week and so far so good. A huge difference from stock bulbs.

the shaft that holds the led bulbs themselves are rotatable

so any person can position the light pattern properly or close to it

I too am interested in how these perform over time. The OEM headlights on the Rangers are not very good IMO. Maybe these will be the solution I'm looking for. Thx for the info and please update us.

Yes, upload them to a hosting site and paste the IMG code in the text box.

Put the photos on your computer from your camera/phone.

Click New Reply. Towards the bottom of the page says "Manage attachements"

Attach your photos that you took with your camera that are on your computer and click add.

I think you can add up to 10 photos.


And...... GO!

I went from oem bulbs to sylvania ultra star, and even those produced a brighter light over stock. I went to the led's for even better visibility and a "updated" look. The bulbs do rotate and lock into place, but (at least mine) would only lock in a certain position. I'll work on getting some pics up.

here are the shaft rotatable led headlight bulbs

2X Philips LED 90W 9000LM SET 9007 Driving Lamp CAR Headlight DRL FOG Bulb White | eBay

you can rotate the shaft to better focus the light output with halogen reflector bowls
