    I have never seen LED bulbs for headlamps but I have seen headlamp assemblies that you could use to replace the nighthawks. They are not cheap, as I understand they cost about $300 Cdn. We have been putting them on the big belly scrapper municipal trucks. They recently tested them and claim that LED light penetrates the blowing snow better than original incandecant bulbs.

    Samjr.... I checked out those bulbs on ebay. I wonder how bright they are. No information on candle power as compared to regular bulbs. Do they generate any heat at all? Do they ever burn out?
