The Ford Superduty is a popular truck for those who need to tow heavy loads, carry lots of passengers or do work in the dark. However, there are many people who have been frustrated that they couldn’t convert their vehicle to LED lights. This article will teach you how easy it is!
The first thing is picking out your color temperature of light bulbs for the headlights and fog lights. You can always change this later on, but you need to pick a good starting point. I recommend white or bluish tinted LEDs if you want more visibility during dawn/dusk times when there are many types of other lighting sources around (streetlights, car headlights, etc.) If you have an older truck with yellowish interior lights that has been burning up faster than it should be due to age then go ahead and use blue LEDs in those areas as well!
The next would be finding what type of brightness level suits you best through changing the power draw of the bulbs. This can be done by using a resistor to lower the power, but I recommend doing it with an LED controller board instead so you don’t risk overloading your vehicle’s electrical system or frying one of your headlights!
Lastly wiring up your lights and installing them in their new location. It should take some time for installation. Don’t forget that there needs to be an appropriate fuse added between wires when connecting multiple LEDs together too – this is one of the most important steps that people often forget to do.
So, let’s start step by step:
Remove the headlights and taillight lenses from your Ford Superduty truck.
- Install a LED light controller to control when the lights turn on or off, which type of color they emit, how bright they are, and whether or not they blink at regular intervals.
Mount the LEDs in place of where you removed the old lights. They work best if you install them with adhesive mounting strips that won’t damage any paint jobs.
Connect all wires between each headlight and tail light so that both functions operate as one unit. The front can stay connected by itself; it does not need to be hooked up to anything else for now since there is only one set of bulbs needed per vehicle side rather than two.
Reinstall the headlight and taillight lenses to cover up or protect your new LEDs.
How Do LEDs Work?
LEDs give off an intense beam of light compared with a conventional filament bulb because they emit much more photons per square inch. These beams are also directional so it’s possible to produce brighter lighting without increasing power consumption or heat emissions as long as you have enough surface area in front of the lens from which these beams can be emitted. This makes them perfect for use in traffic signals where high intensity spots aren’t needed but the lights need to penetrate fog and rain.
What Are the Benefits of LED Headlights?
LEDs emit a powerful beam that increases visibility, reduces glare, and cuts down on light pollution by directing more light downward onto the ground and less into other objects, such as your eyes or those of oncoming drivers. They’re also much brighter than conventional bulbs with up to twice the intensity without consuming any additional power. LEDs use about 25% of the energy required for halogen lighting systems which can help you save money on fuel costs while reducing emissions. The life expectancy is typically 30 times longer than incandescent lamps; this means higher-quality illumination over time because they don’t have fragile filaments like older generation bulbs do so you don’t have to replace them every year.
