I don't doubt the company, the theory for the LED headlight caught my attention but the real-world workings of this light even though they were manufactured for longevity (which is the real reason I bought into these), they just don't perform worth a S**T, I mean even if they were remotely better than a stock halogen I would be entrigued. I am only speaking for myself here so if there are others that want to give it a try, then go for it. If they do a lot better in the halogen projector then that's great, but if we are talking only another 450 lumens above what I had, if that is the only difference, then they just plain suck.......that's the facts. I was reluctant to even write this but if its your hard earned money like mine was I was sorta pissed that they advertise these lights they way they do. Rant over.

There are several factors to consider such as the Wattage of the bulb (higher wattage higher cost) and if the bulb uses any sort of reflective optics to help maximize the light output. I am not sure what bulbs you used but we are not going to sell anything that does not meet our customer's expectations (another reason we are taking a while to officially release these). Will have some before and after photos and other info very soon!

I am sure there WILL be better lights offered over time, and I am still interested in what's coming, if and when you have feedback in the form of pictures of night shots I am definitely interested what the potential is still. I am sure the ones I ordered and received were like a first generation set, I believe the potential is there to be a great option for those that don't want to wander down the HID road, so please don't take my fueled comment as an insult, I was merely venting after spending money on a set of lights that were played up as a step up from stock halogens. They were honestly dismal in performance. My kit was an H11 low beam kit. (6000K)

Did you move the truck? Because the LED headlights are a garage door section higher than the halogen. Mega piss off other drivers then, wouldn't you?
And how much are those bulbs you just used?
