Default Best option for LED headlights for 2017 F250?

I need some better lights on my truck.

Found these (I installed the same brand in my Kawasaki mule and thought they were pretty good).

These are what Iíve been running on my F250 for about 2 years. Iíve been very pleased for the money and have had zero issues. Installed them in my Mule Pro as well.

That 6500K color temp is going to fairly ‘blue’ appearing in color.

I would shoot for 4000-5000K range if it is an option (unless you like the blue color).

Iíve been running those Beamtechs in my f250 for a couple years now and theyíre a huge improvement over the stock halogens.

Iíll have to look around when I get home, but Iím pretty sure I have an extra set of them still in the box. USPS lost the first set, Amazon sent another, then both ended up showing up and they told me to keep them. Iíll let you have them cheap if interested.

I put these in my Sierra about a month ago. World of difference. Make sure that you clock them the correct direction L/R and NOT Top/Bottom.

do the rest of us a favor and re-aim them a bit lower -- and if you have a lift on the truck, a good bit lower

Wish state would put the light alignment back on the yearly inspection.

Most of the problem with this that Iíve noticed are on trucks that are leveled with no lift on the rear. Makes the rear end squat and lights aim too high. My LED lamps were a huge improvement at a cheap price, but my truck is stock height. Folks definitely need to adjust the aim of their headlamps on modified trucks, IMO.

I've heard good things about the Beamtech. Although some "experts" say the light is not as clean in standard halogen housings just with led bulbs. I'd love a set of Morimotos, but for like $1600 not a chance.

Are these plug and play or do you have to wire in some sort of chip?

Plug & play. Takes longer to access the back of the housing than it does to unplug & plug.

I have had these for a year or so in my F250 and love them. I got the entire kit for front and rear lights + inside the cab. Awesome and my fav is the reverse lights, they are like headlights back there.

I did the same with the Beamtechs. Not sure how I saw anything before when backing up at night.

I'm going to. But only after I squat the rear end about 6".
