Default Aftermarket Headlights - F150

Looking for your thoughts on this. Does anyone have aftermarket LED's on their vehicle? After driving my wife's car at night, the halogen lights in the truck just aren't cutting it.

The only real option that i'm aware of for the '18 F150's right now are morimoto XB's. I'm not entirely sold on how they look in the website pictures, but in the below youtube video I think they look great. $1350 after discount and i'm hoping they have some better sales next month. Looking to buy in the next few weeks

I'm assuming there's about a 0% chance of me finding a good set of OE LED's in a wrecked truck for a decent price. From what i'm seeing those sell for about $2400 then you need to spend another $300+ on a wiring harness, and even then they aren't plug and play, some extra wiring is still needed. No ty

Morimoto's seem to be the go too other than OEM. Most others are cheap trash.

My buddy just bought a set of Spyder LED headlights for his F-250 for $275, I'd be shocked if they lasted through winter.

Decent review here

@BeerOrGasoline step up. I believe he did the o.e. led swap


I have aftermarket bulbs in halogen housing and they're fantastic. I aimed down and I don't get flashed and visibility is great

Too bad you have the newest gen F150, I have a pair of OEM halogen lights from 09-14 that could be used for a retrofit that I would let go for next to nothing

I bought them for a steal, ended up selling them before install for a large profit.

Agree, what year? Everything i'm seeing is $600-750 for a set of used halogen lights and $2000+ for good condition OE LED's. This is for a 2018 (which has different lights than the 15-17)

15-17's are like 3-400 for Halogen and 12-1500 for LED.

I guess that makes sense, they've been around longer. 2018 headlights are still expensive

Those are some good looking units. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Am I the only one that doesn’t like when when the white drl changes to Amber for the turn signal? I know these aren’t the only lights that do this and it’s pretty common, but I don’t like it.
