Default LED Headlights

My factory headlamps have always left much to be desired. Now that the lenses are beginning to haze up, I'm thinking it is time for an upgrade. I see that Maxxima has come out with a line of led replacement headlights that fit semi-trucks, has anyone had any experience with them?

Oops! I also see that GE has a product called Nighthawks that gets good reviews. Anyone tried those?

I did an upgrade and I am super happy! Here is where we talked about lights.
"fog" lights

Anybody ever put an led light bar in between the tow hooks? Looking to add one for some auxiliary night lighting.

I'm running Rigid dulley (6 LED per cube) - i use a relay and wired 'em to the factory driving lamps (really would like them to be on a sep switch).

calling them BRIGHT (and a good addition) would be a serious understatement.

I added a nice 13" bar on the new pickup truck too (really bright, and much cheaper than the Rigid's

Check with David Dixon from Deep Space Lighting. He is the headlight expert as far as I can tell. I don't see anything on his web site for the Coronado. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't be able to help you. He is very accommodating. He goes by NukeE here I think? Great guy. He full times in a Showhauler Truck Conversion.

David has been working on Coronado headlights for over a year. No success yet, I assume.

you cold always try LED "bulbs" as replacements for the OEM Halogen's

These GTR's are highly rated - https://headlightrevolution.com/led-...adlight-bulbs/

I would, but the housings are starting to haze a bit. In truth, David started this whole LED quest/obsession. He sold me an excellent set of LED fog lights to replace my factory lights. Now, I don't think I'll be content until all lights on the front end are replaced with bright white leds.

The coup de gras occurred last week when I drove my wife's new car in the dark. The stark clear white lights sure made the roadway ahead a whole lot easier to see than the warm yellow glow of my freightliner's headlights!
