Hi
I put the led replacements in our 2007 Tahoe, 2002 Honda Odessey, and our 1995 Tahoe, and the difference on all of them is amazing. Way better light on high and low beams both. We got ours off of Amazon and haven't had any problems yet. the only thing to check first is to see if your daytime running lights work through your headlight bulbs, if they do the daytime running lights might not work correctly without a resistor in the line, these can usually be bought through who ever you buy the bulbs from.

So I bought a set from Beamtech for my wifeís Ford Flex as an exper...I mean Christmas present to help narrow things down for my truck.


FYI, I was going to pick up this set for me based off their sale price but I spent too much on a Seafood delivery😏

For those interested, that sale has had a resetting countdown sale timer for a couple weeks....

I had the same issue with old, dim bulbs in my 2015 F150.

I considered LEDs for about 15 minutes but after experiencing every Toyota driver in the area plugging in blue over-wattage LEDs that throw crappy light and scatter badly into oncoming traffic, I decided to stay with halogens for a far superior beam pattern and more effective light temperature.

I bought Silverstars for the low beams, knowing they will last a year and that's the price for brighter halogen beams.

The F150 forums have a lighting section and this is a MAJOR upgrade with much better beam definition and you won't look like a dbag to oncoming drivers.

I can't tell you how much better the high beams are.
I've been running them for a year with no issues.

Good luck and ditch the LEDs.

The beamtech LEDís are a homerun for my wifeís flex. 5 minute install, wider and brighter view. Didnít have to adjust anything based off before/after tape lines on the garage door and test drives with her following me/toward me.
Probably going with the same company for my truck but expecting needed adjustments.

You might be thinking of Xenon bulbs, they are known for blueish tint and blinding people.

My LEDs are the whitest white and have an incredibly sharp pattern on the top side.  They are 10x easier to adjust than factory which you can't really tell where the center or the edge is for reference.

I had halogens and they were yellowish and only lasted a year.  The people I talked with at the store said that's about what everyone is getting, new lamps every year. 

Time will tell how long the LEDs work, I've had them a bit over a year now.

I just ordered some Beamtech bulbs for my wife's Exploder. Hoping they'll help. Her headlights are terrible.

No. Iím thinking of LEDs in halogen housings.
The drivers tell themselves how great they are and people who know laugh and say the higher the K, the less effective they are and in any rain or fog, are useless.
Thatís why real fog lights are yellow.
LEDs only work well in housings optimized for LEDs.

I did the research and got excellent light and beam cutoff and other drivers donít flash me and call me a tool.
Donít be a Toyota driver.
Get the proper bulbs.
