Default LED H6054 Headlights

Hey y'all. Being in a very rural area, I find myself needing bright headlights.
I've been trying to search for some LED lights that plug directly into the factory connector.
I'm sure there's been a thread about this before, but I can't find any.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

so i have LED's in a halogen housing which is more like an H4 housing with a different bulb rather than a full unit like reserector posted. and here are some observations.



-the light is really intense for a short distance.

-the light does NOT project very far

-contradictory to the above, while the light doesnt project very far it does reflect really well off of road signs, reflectors in the middle of the road or those ones on barriers. its kinda like what i imagine a pilot sees on a runway from far away. its a bit odd at first but you get used to it.



-they run cool. cool enough they will NOT melt snow thats resting on the bumper.



-would i buy them again? probably not. the color temperature i have is 6500k and they are too blue for me. note that almost ALL factory cars run a 4300. 5000k is my personal limit for white vs blue but i was unable to find bulbs in the right color temp.





-what do i have now? H4's in E-Code headlamps

If you want serious lights do a projector retrofit. Read my sticky in the electronics section, it's there or the exterior I don't remember. I also have a thread on my headlight build. My off road lights pale to my headlights. Great cutoff and no blinding others. I'll see if I can dig up a link.

Otherwise the best bet is some hella or autopal e code H4 conversion housings. Both are glass and have a great output and light control.


For color 4300k is the best for maximum usable illumination.

yah the problem with that is the outright cost and the hours of labor. no one genuinely WANTS to do that.

I enjoyed the time it took. I've done a couple and had a blast!

I just bought these from amazon. On FoulMouth’s YouTube channel he did a review on them so I figured I’d give them a try. I had some nice Hella H4 housings so my son used them with the new bulbs and he says they’re great. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07G2...op_mb_pd_title

Those H4 LEDs have the 3-prong connector in the rear under that cuff?

They have a short pigtail coming off the back that has a 3 prong plug to connect to the factory wiring.
