Just installed my Diode Dynamics SL1 LEDs last night..still needs some adjusting but great output!
SL1 on passenger and OEM halogen on driver side:
OEM projector lense may be producing the blueish tint since these are a pure white normally. I will do some testing and make some adjustments and see if it is the lense or bulbs. Overall..great bulbs and worth the money.
Nothing needed besides bulbs. Dust caps do not cause any heating issues with the fans. I used Forscan to setup headlight DRLs so they are on constantly and no issues whatsoever. Let me know if I can help with these bulbs!
Looking to upgrade my '15 limited. many good options in this thread for bulb choices, but some time has gone by and the technology keeps changing. wanted to see what everyone is currently running for LED bulbs, and what is a good choice on brand vs reliability vs brightness.
9005 are the bulbs for the headlights and H11 are the fog light bulbs....correct??
Trying to decide between these also.........LED and HID Headlight Bulbs & Conversion Kits
The ones on amazon show the H11 don't fit the fog lights though??
The ones at xenonhids.com have an option for Warning Cancellers / Capacitors for $10 each set. Are these needed?
Welcome to the Forum Patrick.I would love to know which ones you picked?
Your thread was merged with this existing one found with the 'Search' feature. There are threads on HID as well. Keep in mind to do a correct HID conversion you have to replace the entire headlamp unit. There are plug /& play kits but they are actually illegal for on road use although many are using them.I'm going to be picking up a 2015 explorer limited with the halogen headlights. Ant recommendations on headlights? I do a lot of traveling and would like bright headlights. Looking into HID and LEDs. Thank you!
Welcome to the Forum Patrick.
Keep in mind that you have a shutter that shields part of the bulb for low beam and retracts for high beam. You would want to make sure that the bulb you chose will accommodate the shutter.
FYI, the member you quoted hasn't been active here since March 17, 2017.
lots of them on ebayLooking to upgrade the stock head lights on the 2011 XLT non-HID.
After reading several threads/pages of years of LED trial and error from other forum members, is there a proven LED replacement bulb?
OR, what is the best halogen bulb I can install into the 2011?
Looking for white light, don't want any tint of blue.
