I would be interested in the LED tail and side marker lights. I'm getting sick and tired of my tail lights being intermittent because of a bad connection and also of the sun fading my lenses. For headlights I upgrade the housings to IPF 7" and install PIAA H4 super white bulbs. A world of difference.

I saw that Rovers North starting selling an Xenon headlight kit. I think that would be a nice upgrade, probably a lot better than LED.

I'd love to hear from someone that has fit an Xenon kit on their truck

Xenon upgrade

I was running H4s in my 90. Recently installed a xenon kit. Very nice upgrade. Incredibly bright....I can actually make out the outline from the mesh brush bar in front of the lamp on the pavement
