Default LED Head Lights

Can I put LED head lights on my 2000 Ranger, if I can do I just plug them in or do I have to do something to make it work?

Check out SuperBrightLED.com. They have some LED headlights that are supposed to fit a Ranger but there are no reviews from buyers and I suspect they'd be a tight fit. Have no idea about the brightness or even if they're legal but they want $100/set. I suspect that it's too early in product development for these to be great options yet. If you try them make sure you post with pics...

I have led headlight it was a simple installation other than trimming down the twist collar holding the headlight in. They are pretty bright.

I lights up anything reflective in front of you. Usually I just put my light bar on when there's no one around

Once these HIDs kick the bucket I'll be getting a set. By then SeaToughLED should have some too. Until then superbrightleds.com is probably the best bet.

They will improve as time goes on I'm sure. And HIDs have minds of their own, so it is only a matter of time and some money before I make the switch.
