LED headlights

Does anyone have LED bulbs in their truck? If so how do you like them? Pros and cons. I am not happy with the factory setup and want to upgrade to something better.

HID would be my vote. I dont know about the LED bulbs, but I know my HID's light up the road

Not wanting to change anything but the bulbs. Figured LEDs would allow me to do this. Not interested in HIDs just not something I want to get involved in.

I was always told they dont make led headlight bulbs because they dont created enough heat to melt the snow off of the headlights when driving, whether that is true or not thats up to you. Someday leds will be in headlights just not yet. I have HIDs and love them

The Cadillac escalade platinums have LED head lights. There is 3 led on each side. They also have a projector type of lens(like a HID projector). They have to have 3 LEDs for the right pattern for low and hi beams. They are brighter than stock halogen but HIDs are still brighter

HIDs are the way to go plain and simple use DDM Tuning: HID and LED Lighting BEST prices and quality
