For some time now, LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) have been replacing incandescent bulbs as original equipment on new vehicles. They’re used in tail lights and many other applications, most notably as the running lights seen in the headlight housings of many new cars and trucks. If you want to upgrade your lighting, just punch in your vehicle’s year, make, and model and see the huge selection of LED lights we have for you.

LEDs, which are semiconductors that produce light when current is applied, have many advantages over incandescents for a motor vehicle. They’ll last the life of the vehicle; they’re insensitive to vibration, which makes them great for off-road use; they run cool, which makes lighting easier to design; they’re more energy efficient, and every bit helps for better fuel economy; and they light up faster, making them particularly appropriate for brake lights.

But to take full advantage of LED lights you have to go beyond just replacement. LEDs are available in a wide range of additional lighting designed for fog light and off-road use, and the customizing options they provide are almost limitless. For off-road use, LED bulbs are commonly grouped together, with multi-faceted reflectors, to provide powerful illumination and precise beam control. Because of their small size, they can be arranged in lamps of many different shapes and sizes, so you can fit lights in spaces you never thought possible. LEDs with different beam pattern reflectors can also be included in one housing.

If you want to get the latest LED looks, you don’t have to spring for pricey headlight housings. We offer standalone LED daytime running lights in compact housings that can easily be installed in the smallest of spaces, as well as LED light strips that can be tucked in between the headlight and the body. And our PlaZma LED Halo Rings are the affordable way to give any headlight assemblies a distinctive appearance previously exclusive to luxury cars. We also offer headlight and tail light bezels that incorporate LEDs, for a unique, yet inexpensive custom effect.

Our LEDs for trucks range from practical to decorative. You’ll be able to see what’s in the bed under a Tonneau cover or on the darkest night with LED truck bed lights. These bright lights install along the bed rails for maximum illumination, so you don’t have to fumble with flashlights or rely on dim cab lights. LED tailgate light bars will make your truck more visible, with a memorable eye-catching appearance. These bright LEDs are available in versions that illuminate as running lights but also scan side-to-side when you brake, or scan sequentially with your turn signals.

It’s obvious, upgrading incandescent bulbs to LEDs is a smart move. We have LEDs for every application, including exterior lights, headlights, tail lights and dash lights. LEDs also come in various colors, so it’s easy to customize your interior lights. And LEDs can increase safety when used for stop lamps because they light up 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent bulbs, which at 75 mph, gives drivers behind an extra 21’ of braking distance.

    LED Underbody Lights Give Your Ride an Other-Worldly Glow
    Throughout history, light radiating from the inside of an object or person has been associated with otherworldly levels of power. In fiction, it usually indicates the presence of extreme levels of good or evil. When it comes to reality, such light usually signifies intense levels of heat and/or firepower. But make no mistake - regardless of whether light is emanating from the innards of man or machine, the source of it is looked upon as a force to be reckoned with.

    What Are The Differences Between Euro And LED Tail Lights?
    To define a "Euro tail light", it's important to first define a modern "Euro" headlight assembly. Dating back to the 1950s, headlights on European cars were distinctive for their flush, aerodynamic glass surfaces, a design not permitted in the U.S. until 1984. At first, these Euro style headlamp assemblies did not feature a great deal of distinctive styling other than a smooth, one-piece glass outer surface. By the end of the last century, as high-tech xenon headlight assemblies grew in popularity on luxury vehicles, OEM Euro style headlights began to imitate their technical projector-beam look. Frosted glass lens covers were replaced with clear plastic ones, allowing a look at multi-faceted mirror pieces shaped in a variety of patterns. Today, Euro headlights have become associated with those complex shapes as well as circular cutouts that look the part of projector beam lenses. Euro tail lights (sometimes called "Altezza lights" or "clear tail lights") pay tribute to this look with designs modeled after modern Euro headlights.

    What do I Need to Know About Installing LED Bulbs into my Car?
    When you decide to install LED bulbs into you car, you need to know the right size and select the desired color. Next thing to know is that most vehicles use a Thermal Flasher unit to control their Turn Signals. Most Thermal Flasher units are generally not compatible with LED lights without a resistor installed with them. Why you Ask?

    Automotive LED Lighting Explained.
    There is now LED lighting technology available for every conventional automotive lighting purpose. The incandescent bulbs haven’t really developed that much in the 140 years they have existed, while the development rate of LEDs is very rapid, with LED performance being doubled every 36 months, a development rate that is similar to the fast pace of computer development.
