I think they are led. Read a review awhile ago. Insanely priced.

I don't know about those specific ones, but truck-lite makes a 7" 12V LED set for ~$350/each

If someone could put together a group buy on these to bring the price down a bit, I'd be in for a pair!

I think these are cool but they might be too futuristic for a defender. At least the others look stock

Thanks folks, mystery solved. I kept seeing them in LRI and LRM and it struck my curiosity.

How much longer until your truck is in your driveway?

Also, hilldweller did a great little write-up on them over on ExPo:

I love the beam spread. When he directly compares them to some others in the competition, you can see there really is no comparison.

We're still waiting for the truck to pass customs, so no real knowledge of when they will be releasing the truck. Lots of life stuff to take care of on my end in the meantime, so fortunately I'm not dying from the wait

Wow, those truck-lites didn't look so good in that review...

good thread - thanks horesey - the JW's seem to be the clear choice even though they look techno.
