Default Led lighting

Anyone have experience with led bulbs from F-150 leds.com or Diode Dynamics which are better for headlamp replacement and for fogs?

Replaced the license plate bulbs with the basic lowest power ones SMD2 from DioadeDynamics... they look "factory" great, fit like they should with plenty of room inside. These DO NOT affect the backup camera at night, and put out just the right amount of light to illuminate the plate. Saw lots of posts about changing housings and stuff like that....no need, buy a couple of these and your done!

I bought LED lights from eBay and superbrightleds.com. What's interesting, is that my tail lamp LEDs and backup lamps, and front turn signals are from eBay, and I bought those 9 years ago. The map lights are 194's and are beginning to burn out after 9 years. My dome lamp is a array of LED's, something like 2 24 LED cobs (4 LEDs are intermittently going out) . I bought those off of eBay in 2010 as well. The turn signal relay came from superbrightleds.com, but I had to install a resistor on the 3rd brake like after installing an LED one so that cruise control would work. If I remember correctly, my front side marker and license plate LEDs are from superbrightleds.com, which are also about 9 years old.

If we are talking small base mini bulbs like the 168/194/921 or wedge bulbs like 3156/3157/7443 then Sylvania ZEVO is a great choice. Headlight/foglight bulbs the Diode Dynamic is the best, period.
