For me I got Lasfit LED's for both low and high beams. For me they work perfectly, nice white color and so far no sign of lose of power. I too questioned LEDs in my 2017 LT reflectors but just aiming a bit lower seemed to do the trick. Haven't gotten flashed or anything, even driven past many officers without question.So I keep finding conflicting info about LED light in OEM reflector housing like the LT and WT trim and was wondering if it is a good idea or do they not work?
Not want to argue. . . but all aftermarket LEDs are the same and most will not have the LED "stalk" and light emitting elements in the proper position to mimick and focus correctly in a reflector housing.
Most LED after market H11 bulbs will shine into on coming drivers eyes in a reflector housing even if "aimed".
More than that, some have the emitter at the wrong spot on the length of the stalk or have the wrong type/shape of emitter. Sometimes the 9 & 3 issue cam be negated on some by clocking the assembly. Headlight Revolution discusses these problems on their website....However, the main problem with the LED stalk in those bulbs is that they should have the elements facing at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position in the light housing. That does not produce the same light emitting as a halogen bulb.
Yes . . ever have one behind you? I have seen some . .maybe LED factory equipped(?) . .. . that were OK and seemed aimed properly. But many others have the lights up so high that they blind a rear view mirror a mile or so behind me.Ever see our big rig truck driving friends and their leds? OMG WOW talk bout blinding
Agree. . . clockable is best so the emitters can be indexed. And as you say, there are different emitter shapes and the position of them on the heat sink stalk.
Last year during hunting season, I had a jacked up in the front truck with tail draging behind me several times heading back to hunting camp in the evenings, even his low beams were blinding people, saw him at the gas station one evening and mentioned it to him, he just brushed it off.Ever see our big rig truck driving friends and their leds?

But...but...they even got their name from the state.Last year during hunting season, I had a jacked up in the front truck with tail draging behind me several times heading back to hunting camp in the evenings, even his low beams were blinding people, saw him at the gas station one evening and mentioned it to him, he just brushed it off.
I heard NC was going to outlaw those trucks, they will have to be level or nose lower then the front...
