Can you put an original lens on them if you prefer the Factory Look? I don't care for the White Lens' but like the base.

We do carry the red and amber versions if that helps:

I went yo your website and I don't see the specs on these. Anybody use these and has a picture in the dark, and also compared to stock how much brighter.

If we buy 8 are they a better deal, what about the needed relay?

Thanks

What kind of specs are you interested in? They are quite bright, I'd compare them to stock but every Defender in our yard is now running LED lights.

5 & up is all $19.99

The pictures do not do the unit justice, but they look identical to the factory lights, just in LED form.

Have a set on our 110... nice and bright and reliable.
I was sick of fixing the stock poor quality grounding on the early units that prevent the bulb(s) from glowing.

these are actually slightly brighter (or seem that way) than the colored sealed beam leds.

"Quite bright" is a little obscure.

What is the lumens output?

Ideally that should be posted in the specs.

Rigid industries, JW Speaker etc all declare the lumens output.

Do you also have the front clear (white) side marker and turn signal lamps? I'm interested in a front set if you can provide lumens spec for them.

As we are not the light's manufacturers we are not able to rate them, but I will attempt to find their lumen output.

I believe these are what you are looking for? I will do my best to get the lumen output.

Carl:
While your question has merit, be aware that it does not fully take into account the general brightness of the LED units themselves under the lens which is what others will see... while the light output on the scale won't reflect the internal brightness which is what these lights "bring to the visibility table". In other words, they are brighter in output, but the numbers will not do justice as to just how bright they appear when you look at them. On our early 110 the brake lights are factorial in visibility.

Hope this helps.

What are the lumens output(s) of all of our stock lights?

There are some shots of my LEDs in my registry entry.

That's why anyone serious about this will measure and publicize both Raw and Effective Lumens.

Raw is the output without loss occurred by lenses, etc.

Effective is the actual measured output after all losses.

I just think its a bit of a pointless discussion if you don't have numbers to compare products with because 'similar' products can range from $200 to $2000. If specs aren't publicized you wouldn't know that one puts out 1500 lumens and the other one 20 000 lumens. A world of difference. You won't have accurate apples to apples comparizon by saying 'they're bright' or 'they're really bright' There's tons of cheap crappy LED's out there and of course they won't publicize specs.

That said I really like these RN LED lights as they appear close to stock and they are fully waterproof. I replaced all my stock lights with drop in replacement LED bulbs from superbrightleds and they are very bright (my parking lights are 220 lumens) but that didn't fix the crappy waterproofing foam seal the stock lights have. The foam seals degrade and compress and will eventually let in water.

Could you imagine comparing motors (etc, etc) without referencing horsepowers or torque?

Specs matters that's all I'm saying. Otherwise you'll never be able to make educated decisions when comparing products and price points.

Are those before/after photos of stock vs RN LED?

Nice steel wheels Josh! I must not have paid attention as I thought you still had boosts.

Looks really great.

What size are those tires and where did you get them.

I have a set of steel rims waiting for install.

I'd be in for a complete set of 8 in the proper colors (red/amber at rear and clear/amber up front).
Assuming they are plug-n-play (no relays or other wiring required).

Is there a validation code for this deal, or should I call?
