I know they are a ton brighter and there is zero warm up time like an HID has. One thing is the backsides the metal and the housing get very hot so watch with reaching around back there after install. My buddy has them in a 69 camaro. What I am unsure of is the computers friendliness lol. May still need a relay trigger setup like and HID KIT. Although my 2005 has never needed a relay and never had an issue running any HID kit.

I just ordered these


Head lights low and High Beam.

https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...Specifications

Fog's

https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...Specifications

What do you guy's think?

Also Do I need to remove the Headlights to replace the bulbs? How do I remove the headlights? I think I see 3 Bolts.

Do I need to readjust them after every time the headlights are removed? Or do I not touch the adjusters? Thanks

I've got the ones with the cooling ribbons on the back. I like them and think you will too.

I went with the fan ones for the Heads as they are a bit brighter I guess and the ones with teh ribbon for the Fog's as they seem to both be 6700 K Lights so they should match.

I went with HID's on mine, but they have come a long way with the LED's. I don't know if there is a difference in brightness between the HID's and LED's. I'm thinking of going with LED's on my vette just because of less amp draw. Just got to find the right ones.

I tried the Super bright LED, what I noticed was the they lit everything up nice while sitting still or going down a back country road slow, On a main road you are easily able to out drive the lights they lit up in front of the truck fine but not very far and they have a lot wider beam. The High beam seems to do nothing but shut the fog lights down so Low Beam works better.

The Fog lights work well and the color of both I like.

I am not very happy with them as far being able to see well and I do feel they are unsafe. There are 2 Led one on each side so that may be the issue with this style lite not giving light off 360 degrees.

I just bought these headlights and going to give them a shot with these housings but not expecting anything different.

SpyderŪ HD-JH-DR02-AM-BSM (9030352) - Dodge Ram 1500 / 2500 / 3500 2004 Black/Smoke Euro Headlights with Amber Reflectors

I also just bought this HID kit which Ill try its Hid for Lo and Hi beam, 35 W 6000K Color

Boltzen AC CANBUS Series: 35w HID Kit - OPT7

And these 2 add ons not sure if I need them but just encase

Anti-Flicker Wire Relay Harness for HID Kit - OPT7

HID Kit Capacitors Warning Light Cancellors (Pair) - OPT7

I can say the Led kit was pretty easy to hook up, the Hid kit seems to have more to it.

The LED Kit gave me no issues as far as light out indicator or flicker.
