Trust me, I want them on my truck bad, its just the money that has me wanting to see a real test to convince my to pull the trigger. I know you are busy at the shop, but if you could post a comparison stock to LEDs that would be awesome!

I've been running twin LF's up front for a few years. I upgraded to the HIDs two years ago. You use filters to diffuse the light to your conditions. You can choose 'no diffusion' (clear), 'full diffusion' or 'combo', which spreads about 50% of light laterally across the road, and leaves about 50% for the pencil beam. Blue filter set is great in snow. I run the 'combo clear' filter except for blizzard conditions in the Sierras.

BTW, I spent the night at a Baja 1000 pit stop north of La Paz a couple of years ago. (We were flying over the race but all helicopters were grounded at sundown.) Standing next to the course, I could tell the Lightforce trophy trucks from the others, their light was so bright. (Can you tell I've been an LF fan for years???)

Great looking 110's, the green is great, though i think the tyres look odd
definitely worth a double take.

I've been looking at all the HMMWV's over here with the LED head lights. I've been trying to decide if it would be cool or tool to put them on the 110. I think I'm convinced I want them. I think they're still probably toolish to put on, but I still want them.

We'll do some side by side tests in the next few weeks and put them on the ECR site.

Do you need an upgraded wiring harness to use these like the hella lamps? Will it burn out the switch otherwise?

There are two different 7" LED headlights on the market. Which ones are you looking at? From what I can see the JW Speaker ones are better.

Glad to help. Now I just need to see the comparison so that I can justify in my toolish mind how they really are a superior lighting system for my application (driving around).

It would be interesting to see an unbiased evaluation. The comparisons I have read on the lighting forums (for the Trucklites) says they are on par with a decent halogen for brightness and don't have a a very good beam pattern and that a proper 7" HID (Osram or similar) is much better.

No, a benefit to LED is a lower draw. No changes to wiring needed.

Geez, if I would have known this was going to become an LED debate due to one picture of a 110, I sure would have thought twice.
So how many folks have actually sat their ass behind the wheel of a truck with LED headlights? (other than JimC as I know he sees them all the time)

Not me, but I'd be willing to pay a visit if that's an invite to take free rides in ECR 110s.

One reason we use the LED's here is that you can shoot out a pair of halogens really easily. I'm going to claim that I'm concerned about people shooting out the headlights on my 110.

I see them on the newer UPS trucks in the city. Though UPS never delivers packages at night I never get to see them used! And they are the same 7" size I believe!

I really like the low draw and how they will last forever. Just need to see them in a side by side comparison.

Not sure what is worse. The design of the light or the truck it was installed on:

Notice the trans cooler in the second pic.

Video of the light in military application.

Are you going to compare them to E-codes?

I saw them all the time, in Iraq. I think they are the way to go and the wave of the future. Halogens and tube tv's are in their final chapters.

BTW, for non-subscribers, Overland Journal's last edition just did a very robust comparison of off road lights to include halogen, HID and LED market leaders.

Also remembered another con for LED. They don't generate heat, and so extreme cold/arctic weather they will not melt off snow/ice. I'll stick with Halogens until they solve for that, since I want to travel in those conditions.
