LED headlights


Recommended Posts

Our 1997 Monaco Windsor has the 87-91 Ford F150 headlights. I used a headlight restoration kit to remove the yellowing and replaced the bulbs with Silverstars last year, light was better but still very poor. I finally switched out for LEDs, I used these from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QNNH28X  The light pattern is great, good cutoff and the road is lit at least triple the distance the Silverstars could manage. Glare is not bad.

I also replaced the plastic retainer rings which were missing almost all the retaining tabs with these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000COB65M but I had to file the 3 locking tabs a bit for them to work.

I replaced the driving lights with https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B081DTRC46 which make a lot of light, but a lot of glare. I would turn them off for oncoming drivers on a 2-lane road. They light up overhead road signs perfectly, which is great when you get close to the sign and your headlights are no longer illuminating it due to the cutoff pattern. They are a bright fill for the areas the headlights don't cover but you just have to be careful about oncoming drivers on 2-lane roads.
