I have an 2004 F350 the headlights were terrible I've spent a small fortune on aftermarket light bulbs new headlight lenses just trying to find something that would make driving at night better. I saw on YouTube reviews for LED lights after watching a few videos I ordered some 9007 LED Bulbs from LASFIT LED they are Amazingly Bright! I can see so much better it's like all the New Trucks are with the exception I adjusted mine so I'm not blinding everybody... I got the LED Backup Lights also because my truck didn't offer a backup camera so Lights Are Needed and these put out plenty of that.

I'm very happy with them so much so I feel safer driving at night, I bet the Dogs, Cats and People feel safer too.

He said he adjusted them, I’m sure they are fine.

I wish everybody else would, aftermarket LED fog lights are even worse

I’ve been restoring my ‘99 GMC. every bulb in it is now an LED. I replaced the headlight and fog light housings too. The difference is amazing. I’ve driven it at night and nobody flashed their brights at me. That truck had problematic DRL assemblies since new. Burnt out sockets regularly. With LED bulbs that problem is solved. Drastic drop in current equals drastic reduction in heat. LED’s last forever too, so why not switch?

I’ll convert the Superduty over when it starts needing bulbs too.

Yes, you’re still blinding everyone even though you adjusted them. Your headlight housing has a reflector designed for halogens. Your LED’s don’t reflect properly in that housing so your “spilling” light everywhere. Please remove them, you’re blinding everyone.

I hope adjusting them does the trick. I don't know if its because most of my driving at night is rural roads and people forget to dim or what, but I find that damn near every vehicle on the roads headlights are too bright. I find myself having to put a hand up to block the beams and just stare at which stripe the yellow or white, whichever I see best till they pass. The fog lights are worse and the idiots running the light bars need to have it hung in their azz. No thought for others, and many have gotten so bright it truly is blinding. I think you should be forced to sit on the other side of your bight azz lights before you can have them.

Just got done driving around the block about 20 times in the wife's car as she drove my truck the other direction but I got them adjusted best as I can. Yes they are still very bright Extremely Bright road right in front of my truck out about twenty feet but not blinding when we meet head on. Now if I pull up on you at a red light I have a 2" lift and 35" tires I can see everything inside your car....Not Sorry.

Part of the problem is color temperature. Our eyes are far more sensitive to the blue spectrum than red.

Did these plug into your factory housing with no issues? I just checked out their site and it all looks plug and play but I figure you get better feedback from users. My 2000 is pretty sad in the headlight department. I need to replace the lenses as well.

They do. But depending on brand, you may need to install filters between the bulb and vehicle harness due to interference produced by the bulb which can cause AM/FM reception issues.

Let's all just put 6 ft. light bars on the front and be done with it.

When Grampa went from kerosene lamps to electric lights the neighbors said the same thing.

+2, some people just don't understand that you can't just slap some LEDs bulbs in housing that are designed for halogens. In some states you wouldn't pass inspection if you did. The light is scattered and actual illumination is not as good. I am seeing it far too often these days. If you want to improve your lights get some housings designed for LEDs and yes it can be expensive. LEDs require a cutoff which you will only get with the proper housings. [Linked Image]

I too have driven my LED headlight equipped truck at night with zero flashing brights aimed at me and no shots fired. The beams are right where they should be and super bright, a blue/white color. I’m sorry if some folks think I’m an LED outlaw, but it’s my truck and my responsibility.

By the way, I also switched my tail lights and brake lights to super bright LED bulbs so I can blind you when you’re behind me too.
