    I've seen a thread on here that has green LED Halo's within the headlights. I've already searched it up, even went on eBay for pricing.

    The problem is: Just for the Halo LED's (pack of 4 halos) is $199.99. I know the Explorer headlight ring is huge and and the Halo’s would make it look sweet, but i dont think ill want to dish out $200 JUST for 4 Circle LED’s??....Is there anywhere else where I can buy them?? say under 100? (Just for the LED Rings)



    My Future Installation…In the next 2 months:


    1. Black housing headlight with clear corners

    I have those exact tail lights you pictured.

    bought them online for 140ish

    very bright, and they look great...
    had to make a small spacer for the mounting screw, But only because my tailgate is tweaked from an asian grandma.

    i wish the difference between just being on, and break lights, was a little bit greater.

    Maybe cheap LED's within the taillights?
    One friend of mine bought a couple led bulbs from http://www.superbrightleds.com/ .... Expensive but way better & brighter than the "china/ebay" bulbs I bought online

    Sorry, haven't started on the project yet. I bought my Explorer just about 3 weeks ago, and doing an engine swap. The current one is knocking, but hopefully I can start by Nov.

    ... 4. LED TailLights (Lightly Smoked) ...

    I have those on my 2007 (needed a little coaxing since the mounting holes don't fit a Gen 4 quite right). But they do look great.

    ... 5. SwitchBack LED Turn Signals (White/Amber) ...

    Watch out for those, they don't last too long (year, year and a half). I'm on my 2nd set, and one of them turn on when it wants to (the white section). I'll be going back to regular chrome bulbs when I get around to changing them.

    Someone else mentioned SuperbrightLEDs. I used their LED rings with 3 HID Retrofit projects and they do last. Of course that assumes you're going to tear into the headlight assemblies and do a projector retrofit rather than a Plug-and-Play kit. They have them from 60mm (pic below) to 120mm: LED Angel Eye Headlight Accent Lights.

    8000K HID may look cool (to some), but they do reduce your visibility substantially over the "normal" 4300K or 5000K.
