So after doing a little bit of internet wide research, I could hardly find the answer to they question I had, and that was to see what the people thought about LED headlight conversions. I have heard second hand accounts of them being good and even a few pictures of them and they looked pretty legit. So for me and anyone on this forum, I have ordered a set of PlasmaGlow LED headlights for my truck. My first test will be using them for a little while in my stock housings and report on that. During that time I will be building up my own set of retrofits and then installing them in those. I'm hoping that the results I get from this are helpful to those who have considered purchasing LED vs HID.

The kit came in today and first impressions are pretty good. The bulbs are very sturdy and a little heavier than I was expecting. Overall build quality seems to be very good as well. I will be installing them later today and will report how all that goes.
I did the install this morning instead of last night due to weather. Already from what I can tell they are super bright but actually focus the light very well. The cool thing with these, along with being super bright, is that when you turn on high beams, the low beams stay on. I will post pictures later today when their output is clearly visible.
Ghill, the install was fairly simple but because of the cooling fan on the back of the bulb the headlight housings had to be removed to get them in. After they were mounted up they have enough clearance to get proper cooling.
I will be taking a pictures later of actual light out put with hi and low beams. From what the manufacturer described, these are actually meant to work well in halogen housings due to the shape of the led housing.
