Bi-led: Morimoto m led 2.0

Looks like HID has finally been surpassed. Curious what these would look like in a set of 4th Gen headlights Whatís most appealing is instant ON with no need for relayís, harnessís, ballasts, igniters, etc..

Theyíve arrived

Top.

If you pick top though, will you need four lights?
These arenít just bulbs, so does that require cutting out the back and mounting these somehow? I donít get how these would work for a simple retrofit.

It's Funseeker. I'm all about the good times!

I only need 1-Pair (2 projectors). Retrofit is simple. Bake open. Unscrew old (low beam) projectors. Install (screw) new ones. Seal back up.

The one thing on my truck that is HIGHLY disappointing is the lights. In fact, 'disappointing' is being kind. Next-to-worthless would be more accurate. Primitive, in fact. I've seen better headlights on a horse and buggy in Shipshewana.

I drove my wife's new Edge home from Thanksgiving dinner at the Offspring's house the other night and I could actually see. What an incredible difference. LED lighting is standard on them. A middle-end, not very expensive car. And my $63,000 sticker-price sooper-duper truck?

Blind as a freaking bat. In fact, I have trouble telling if the headlights are on if I leave the fog lights on. I drove 15 miles on the Interstate with my fog lights on before I realized my headlights weren't on. Turned them on and...... Not a lot of difference.

I still love my truck overall, but the lighting is just simply horrendous. Beyond pathetic. It is the one thing that really angers me about it.

Taking a turn from a stop on a dark road, I have to roll the window down about half the time so I can see if I'm going to run over something or drive into a ditch. Even the brights are laughable. The deer kinda snicker at them

Terrible lighting FCA. I'm surprised the DoT even let them put them on our roads.

FCA seriously dropped the ball on their lighting

My vote is for the bottom black ones! I will love to see how these turn out no matter what lights you choose.

Let's start over, Nick. One pair of the top ones, please.

Right now top set on amazon is 15% off. Also the LED projectors are 25% off at TRS. Total for both is $515.36

Not bad when you consider the alternative (Morimoto XB LED Headlights) cost over twice as much.
