There must be a market for them they sell out quick where I live. I run 6000k heads and fogs and have a rigid 20" the things that bother me are the logging trucks/oil haulers with led headlights

Sure.

Ricers outnumber F150's approximately 100:1 around here ....

No self-respecting nipple-pierced, nose-ringed punk with a fartcan would stoop to running anything but blinding blue/purple lighting.

The only good thing is their windshields are right at the height of my towing ball, lol.

Hmmm ... lemme get this straight.

Two oncoming trucks on a single-lane road. One running JUNK like you are, the other with properly aimed projectors.

The driver with the projectors HAS to look away to avoid detaching his retinas from lighting that is thrown everywhere Except where it needs to be, while the driver with the JUNK HID's can continue to look straight ahead with no visual acuity impact.

Sound logical to me.

Looking away can incur additional risk as yer NOT gonna be looking at the Road while trying to save yer eyesight. It is dangerously distracting.

BTW - If you REALLY wanted "as much light as possible" you'd do a fekkin' retrofit, as the $hit yer running now is not even close to what is possible. Just don't let yer wifey know how clueless you actually are .

Yep - real considerate of yall.

If I were closer, we could do just that - perhaps you'd learn something. Probably not, though, in retrospect.

Just wow ....

Sorry I dont run junk as you put it and I have no issues at all looking to the side of the road if oncoming traffic bothers my eyes in the least.

If you were closer, maybe you could be taught as well to look to the side of the road if it hurts your little eyes.

And btw, as taken from about ANY driving manual you can find:

Avoid looking directly at the headlights of oncoming traffic. Instead, look down and to the right. You should be able to gaze at the white line on the side of the road or where the pavement meets the shoulder. Use the right side of the road for tracking your lane instead of the left side. You will still be able to see other vehicles with your peripheral vision but the glare won't bother you as much

To all that asked about my lights,

They're epoxied in similar to a retrofit. I cut the back of the mounting structure off and aimed them.

Those are some sweet lights. Buddy of mine has two of them on hood mounts on his raptor and they put out a crazy amount of light.

Those are not fog lights. Go drive in fog with those and you will be driving blind. Fog lights are supposed to shine BELOW the fog to prevent light scatter. You just as well run your high beams.

But I generally don't have a problem with people who put in these kinds of bulbs as long as they use them for off-road and when other drivers are not around.

Using them in traffic would just be cruel.

I understand this well and clear, and I never said I use them as fog lights - only that I mounted them in the factory fog light locations.

I've kinda got a fetish for offroad lights, it seems..

Okay everyone...lets be friends!!!

I too didn't like the orangish hue the fog lights gave off and how the looked next to the factory HIDs.

So...I bought and installed a set of PIAA fog light bulbs.
Very bright and white (not blue) and best of all...they're DOT approved.
I love them and they made a world of difference.

Thumbsup. I support bright offroad lights!

Heck there are places around here where they are fine on the road since you never pass anybody!

Can you even tell your high beam headlights are on?
