Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

Did you buy a set of these from LMC and replace the bulbs in it with LED bulbs? How is light output compared to the stock halogen housings.

Re: 1991 ccsb duramax

The problem with sticking a LED bulb into a housing that was designed for a H3, etc... is that the light source is in the wrong place and you lose the light focus and you become one of the annoying a-holes that looks like your high beams are on all the time. Either buy a full LED housing or upgrade to a better halogen bulb.

Cool to see another Alaskan on here! I recognize the Texas Roadhouse in the background. Love the build so far!

You know this for a fact because you've done this exact conversion yourself? I'm just mind blown by all of your knowledge!!!
