Round LEDs

What is current state of the art LED?
I'm thinking about some auxillary lights for the RR Hunter but these square LEDs just don't look *right* on a RR Classic.
I'm keeping my stock 7" headlights(actually IPF euros with relays), I just hate the look of the LED headlights.

I like the Rigid Industries, but in my brief search I only found square housings...

Any good looking round lights out there?

Jeff, have you seen the trucklite LED headlights? They seem pretty nice but are very pricey.

I have Trucklite LED headlights on my Hummer H1, and to be honest, I'm a little disappointed. They don't put out half as much light as I want. However, the newer verson, that just came out a couple months ago might be better.

The old style RDX led lights with RDX protectors are also visible. Also available on eBay BTW.

Are the military lights dual voltage? Can you run them on a 12v system and will they run as bright?

I believe the Trucklite brand sell two different part numbers for the 24v and the 12v

Military lights (especially Trucklites) are NOT dual voltage. You need to specify 12V if you don't have a military setup. Lots of guys have pulled the trigger on less expensive Trucklites to find out they bought the 24Vs...then they're out a couple hundred $.

Be careful what you buy!

The OP is NOT asking about headlights....

He is asking about auxiliary lights.....

Haven't checked the rallylights website in a while.

My sense is that as work lights LEDs are good but traditional halogen etc type lights are best for fog/driving etc

Yep, I just don't care for those headlight LEDs.

I did see some Trucklite auxillaries; in the 4.5" size I think.

You can check out Vision X, they make a few different round led aux lights.

My IPFs are hardwired with relays.



I'll check some of those links out.

Wow...those ARBs are expensive! But, I don't like all the red...

Were you able to get them? You can search for lights in ebay or amazon. I think it is the best place to get lights in cheaper rates. Try your luck

Haven't gotten anything yet.
Ideally, I'd like one that looks like a Hella 1000 but is LED.
I didn't care for the looks of those square housing/round light combos.

They need to compliment the RRC's aesthetics.
