Re: 1 Owner 1976 SWB

Well, I finally got to drive at night with the new headlights.
They worked out pretty well, a definite improvement from what I had.

I did not get lights flashed at me once & I did driving on 2 lane back roads as well as 4 lane highway.

The high beams are a little different though. When I turn them on I notice more light on the ground in front of me (like turning on fog lights) then I do light higher like a normal high beam.
For me it was actually kind of cool though because I could kick them on and see the road in front of me better to watch out for potholes, etc.

Overall I am pleased.

Been looking at these for my 4 headlight 85 C01. How hot do these get and are those fans at the bottom of the bulbs? How much noise do those produce?

Re: 1 Owner 1976 SWB

UPDATE ON THE LED HEADLIGHTS WE'VE BEEN DISCUSSING ABOVE...

So, I noticed a while back that the drivers side headlight lens/housing had a haze to it kind of like it was fogging or a dirty pretty much all the time. Although not that noticeable it drives me nuts. I tried contacting Stark about it & never heard a single word back.

Then Saturday, after arriving to a local car show I discovered that the passengers side lens was cracked all the way across. There was no "point of impact" like a got hit with a rock or anything so I don't think that was the issue.

So, with these 2 issues & the lack of being able to get customer service, I plan to remove these lights & go back to old school lights until (or even if) I find another set that I like enough to try.

I was happy with the look of the lens in the beginning with them not having any wild designs or company logos all over them & even the performance of the lights but I just don't think they are all that great of quality of product.
(And take in to consideration my truck is not daily driven or even driven that much all)

Just wanted to give an update since so many of you had posted or messaged me about these.

I ordered them from their eBay store shortly after you purchased. After payment they sent me a message saying the sealed beam was defective and it would be approximately 6 weeks. They refunded my money and I planned to go another route. After waiting and never found anything that had that classic look I noticed they were available again. Hopefully I won't have any issues.

Thanks for the update. I was also considering these lights. I guess I will look at another route.

Justin, very nice job! Have you thought about the lights from LMC - http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/cc/full.aspx?Page=101?
