Housings or bulbs? Bulbs are available, but I personally, am not a fan of LED bulbs in a halogen or HID housing. I am considering however, changing to OEM LED housings.

Honestly I’m looking more for a direction of how to brighten my low beams. I thought led was the way to go but I’m open to all recommendations. Currently my lights are standard from the factory but don’t seem very bright. Would you have any suggestions?

What's important to know about standard headlights is that they use a halogen light technology. Halogen lights operate at a high temperature, which requires a more complicated and expensive design in order to keep them properly cooled. In contrast, LED headlights emit light from individual LEDs, work at low temperatures for better efficiency, and require no maintenance or replacement costs. A car can also have both its headlamps set on different kinds of technologies for additional customization!

The conversion process itself is done with three main stages: removing the old bulb type from the vehicle's bumper; installing brackets for your new headlight's housing; installing your new bulb through these brackets into the front of your vehicle.

My concern is lenses icing up in the winter with LED, much less heat. I’ve noticed the F150’s ice up significantly more than my halogens

I swapped to Lucas lighting hid to led conversion and it’s way brighter only alternative I’ve found.. perfect cut off no scattered light. I wish I got these first and didn’t waste money buying a different hid bulb

which series did you get and did you have trouble with install?
H2L to Led. Only one they have for ds3 hid. Install is easy. You need to tuck the wire inside the housing to get the rear cap back on. But seriously I spent 250 on Philip extreme Hid and they stunk. I bought the Lucas Lighting led. Beautifully crafted. Feels premium unlike the Amazon versions. And no joke they work amazing but people don’t wanna pay the premium. Price but still complain they can’t find anything. So all I can say it if your willing give them a try if you don’t like em I believe they do money back.

Yea I’m going to purchase them now. Really appreciate the help! Oh yeah, did you get any warning lights in your dash about it?
