Whatever leds you get for headlights, make sure the low beams have the built in small metal cut off shield. This is what will prevent you from blinding others. Any leds that do not offer those will blind others. You’d need to adjust them down so far that they’d do you no good as a headlight if you didn’t want to blind oncoming traffic.

Too many people just throw in cheap leds having no understanding of how an led produces light compared to an incandescent light bulb. Being that the housing is made specifically for a halogen incandescent, you need to be extremely careful what you put in there.

A few of the nicer leds will work. You’re not going to have as good of a low beam pattern, but you’ll gain a little output and a cooler color temperature.

Never use an HID in the halogen housing.

Exactly right! Mine have a low beam shield and it has to be pointed upwards low beam led above shield. When I first put them on they were upside down where low was on high and high was on low. Rotated them 180 deg and final adjustments it was perfect and no more bright light flashes. Thanks or the info!

What's the recommended bulb that will work with our trucks?

Will have no problem adjusting to spare blinding the oncoming traffic.
these have the best beam pattern of any led according to bulbfacts.com. I have them and have no problem and they needed no adjustment. Just pop them in and you are good to go.
