Suggestion on Lights swap out

Ive been looking on ECR for a while and have been admiring the LED upgrades they sell, contacted them and they no longer sell the kit. My dumb luck! Their site mentioned their we're some out there that were not worthy, anyone suggest a brand and source for a set of the LEDs? Pics would be nice if you have the set up on your rig. Also want to upgrade the front lights too for a set that is brighter, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advanced

Michael.

I have this LED kit on my D-110 but, embarrassingly, I don't know where they come from. Pikes Peak doesn't remember either.



I seem to think that they are genuine LR off of one of the special edition Land Rovers but I couldn't say for sure. If I can help by giving you any numbers I'd be happy to help. Just PM me. I know Rovers North has a new set they came out with not to long ago but I haven't seen them or really heard anything about their quality. As for the rest of the lights, source them from one of the many LED bulb websites and for god sakes do not get into changing your headlights for those awful TruckLite LED kits. We are still a gen or two away from seeing anything better then a good H4 high output headlight.

I have ordered a set of Bi-Xenon and will let everyone know how it turns out. Supposedly a drop in replacement.

I can help any D-90 members with LED bulbs at a discount. My company does them and I am one of the testers on various platforms and weatherometer testing too.

Futurevision HID. We get sent many a low end Asian kit for testing, billed as "projector" HID, but they don't have the actual electro-mechanical projector hi/lo mechanism. So I am going to Guinea Pig this and let everyone know.
