    Ya but regular halogens just suk to me. Draw a lot of power and don't give off enough light for me.
    After seeing these in person , i will never go back.

    The upper ones are the 1400 lumens, the lower ones are the 1000 lumens
    For a total of 4800 lumens.
    The picture of the area lit up does not do them justice. They are probably the brightest lights I've seen at least
    You can see the 55 watt hella's under my bumper in the pics. they look like candles compared to the led's.The hella's will be coming off and ill be mounting led grommet into the rear bumper.

    My biggest worry would be that they become ineffective when covered with snow, I don't think they get hot enough to melt it off or am I wrong?

    don't know yet, i can feel a little heat, well, warm. they do have an aluminum housing with cooling fins so i will assume they get warm.

    Yes and no. I agree 400 bucks is a lot but, I've spent more than that trying cheap inexpensive ones time and time again and have not been happy.

    so over the years i just buy once and cry once.

    Im a stickler when it comes to me being impressed. I research everything to death for days.
    I have been wanting to buy these for awhile, but couldn't find a good video of how they lit up an area, i finally did and ordered them.

    Everyone who has seen them can't believe how friggin brite they are, Again the photo does them little justice.

    I have them on the back of my truck and they never became ineffective on the back . 2 on the sander that turn on in reverse. 1 for the ground to see salt spray and 2 on back rack controlled from inside when I am out working and need light. They have 5 year warranty and they are great. You will be very happy.Thumbs Up

    They put out just enough heat to keep any snow melted off of them. I have 2 mounted underneath my rear bumper and have not had any issues with snow sticking to them.

    Thank you. I keep hearing this fallacy about LED's becoming ineffective because of not enough heat but haven't seen any problems yet. Glad others are having the same experience.

    I have LED worklights and flashers on several of my vehicles and never had a problem. Even taillights and marker lights.

    When doing 4 lights like that is there any reason not to mix floods and spots? Or do you get enough "distance" lighting from the flood that you don't need spots?
