Because they don't throw enough heat?

I was thinking the same thing to. Next month I wanna Truck Lite highlights to my truck. I like the way the look and I think you'll be better than what I have. I was hoping and wishing that they had a group buy on the headlights.

P'raps their owners haven't figured out how to turn the heater on....

In real cold, washers won't do anything. You need heat.

Is this group buy actually going anywhere or are we all just drooling over the mythical LED package that is never going to happen? I'm just asking for all of the guys that continue to be "In" on the deal...

My question exactly. I'd want to do the fronts as well for my 1993.

Sorry for the hijack but can someone who has bought these tell me if they are less deep than a stock headlight? I'm looking for options where I have reduced clearance behind the headlights.

Thanks,
charles

Yes, not enough heat to prevent snow accumulation.

Brad, those look sharp! Those look like the Trucklite LED's. Have you noticed a problem running them in snow? Practically speaking. (I'm from Northern Michigan and been through storms that would cover halogen lights, so I guess I'm looking for degree of concern.) I'm about to buy a set this week or next, and still haven't settled on Trucklite or the JW Speaker (at almost twice the price). Thoughts?

Yes Michael, these are the Trucklites. I have been extremely happy with them and the light output is a thousand percent better than stock. These are the best bang for you buck by far.

As for snow.... The second picture was taken after I had been on the road for an hour and a half in a storm. If you look closely, the bottom half of the lights are covered by snow/ice, but this is the high beam portion. I can't say they wouldn't get completely covered, but I have not experienced that yet.
