LED review: Morimoto 2stroke 2.0's
These arrived today. These were rated #4 by some yahoo who reviews these things. The #4 rating was in the reflector type of housing. Well, here we go, gonna drop these in the stock housings and see how they do. I have both headlights and driving lights.
Going to be looking at:
1) Driving light output (distance) & beam pattern compared to the halogens
2) Headlight output (distance) & beam pattern compared to the halogens
3) Combined driving & headlight output compared to halogens
4) Oncoming traffic impressions (park truck with lights on and drive at it in a small car and either spit out 4 letter words or roll the thumb up)
Currently there are Wagner 9006's in the driving lights and 1 Wagner & 1 Sylvania basic halogens in the headlights. Going to find a dark road that is flat (hahahahha... pfmth ahem) to do the testing on. If I can find a road with reflectors on it (not likely) I'll use that has the reference. If not, I'll go find the reflector stakes at home depot and use those.
Timeline... prooobbbbably not going to happen until Saturday nite (least likely, trail work all day) or Sunday nite. Weather permitting.
Well that did not go as well as I had hoped... cant get the good tripod in there to get good shots. Took them freehand and they were OK, not sure if they are better then the cell phone pics. So for now, cell phone pics below...
Halogen headlights only
Halogen headlights + halogen driving
Had to work late so nogo on install, but... it was dry so took these shots. Going to add a daylight shot so you can see it all
headlights + driving
Driving lights only
Morimoto lights… drivers side is defective, low & high are reversed. When hibeams are on the drivers side shifts to a low beam output.

Update 1/20/2020: Heard back from Morimoto from the support email I sent on the sloppy fit... Kind of a long time for them to get back to me. I explained the issue and mentioned it was resolved with another o-ring. I also mentioned the issue with the 9007 bulb. Will see how that pans out
