SEMA 2010 - Truck-Lite

Article written by MOABJEEPER Staff

Date Added: 11/07/2010

MOABJEEPER Magazine visits with Truck-Lite, maker of DOT approved LED Headlights.

Traditional headlights work. H4 replacements are better. HID is great but really expensive. But what about LED's? The latest generation have a purer, whiter light and are easier on the eyes (for oncoming traffic especially). LED headlights are available in a variety of modern cars, but are they up for the challenges of living on the front of a Jeep? Let's take a look at some numbers.

The average headlights last somewhere between (claimed expectancy) 950 - 1500 hours. Our observation, and others, is the more intense the light - the shorter the life.

Truck-Lite LED's; however, have a life expectancy far beyond any of the aforementioned lights. To break this down, Truck-Lite expects their LED headlights to last as much as 50 times longer. That is 60,000 hours, or 41 years when used 4 hours each day. Add to that the extreme durability, and it certainly looks like they're up to the challenge.

Final Thoughts

Aside from long life and the ability to take a hit, LED lights have a natural white color. But unlike HID conversions that require rewiring, these lights are truly plug-n-play. Oh and did we already mention they're DOT approved?

So there you have it. There is a good chance these lights will still be burning bright long after your rig has been returned to the earth by Mother Nature.
