LED Headlights

Post by kurt303 »

The headlights for my 86 P'up don't work very well, only the brights light up. A friend suggested getting LED Headlights and now i'm starting to like the idea more and more.

Is it a simple replacement of old to new or, is there some hoops to jump through in achieving this?
Does anyone have LED lights they'd want to recommend?

Also is the size i am looking for just 5x7 7x6?

I'd 1st check to see if you have 12v at the headlight plug for lowbeam. If you do, your headlight lowbeam elements on each headlight could be burning out. Sounds too coincidental, but happens.
If no voltage at plug lowbeam, it could be blown fuse or corroded fuse blades, or bad contacts inside multi switch on steering column, or bad headlight sw on dash.

LEDs won't work right anyway if you don't have 12v at your plug.
I'm personally not a huge fan of LED headlights. I drive at night and most of them are like high beams blinding my eyes all the time. To each his own I guess

These work awesome. Just installed them. I did use the anti flicker inline caps just to be safe.

I'd like to see a photo of your truck with the Afeax headlights installed if you have the time and knowhow. Previous owner installed LED lights on my 86 but they don't light up more than about 30' and look cheesy.
