    Anyone have a good source for LED lights that are just a general work light. Need some back up lights, and will run them constantly at times. Don't like the amperage draw of the halogens. But I've had a tough time finding LED's that won't break the bank. Thanks, Nick.

    A problem with LED is they do not generate enough heat to melt the snow that gets on the lens. the Halogens draw about 8 amps each for a 100 Wat, too much?

    Halogens were a problem on my old truck. 3 pairs of lights going at once plus the plow and it was not happy. I'll take my chances with the LED's and icing up I think.

    I have a pair of the DDM Tuning LED lights with ZERO complaints.


    I've never had an issue with them packing with snow or anything either.
