Re: FS: Colorado / Canyon Fog Light LED Bulbs! Several Model Options! New XML2 Added!
A quality 35 watt HID conversion kit will still produce more overall lumen output than a plug and play LED setup. Also, yellow may not be road legal in all 50 states.But y tho
Of course it's possible to install LEDs in the factory socket, but it's not going to utilize the housing as effectively due to the placement of the LEDs and other factors.It's possible to have LED low beams. I had LED low beams in my 2015 Colorado projectors:
They were rated at 2200 lumens and were just a hair better than halogens.
However, when I put the exact same bulbs in a fog light reflector housing, they showed to be better in the reflectors than projectors. Better light, better throw.
LED vs stock halogen comparison
Funny you say that because their advertising states this right in their ad:Of course it's possible to install LEDs in the factory socket, but it's not going to utilize the housing as effectively due to the placement of the LEDs and other factors.
A rounded 2,200 lumen "rating" is not the same as a measurement. It's a calculated total, typically over-inflated to mislead potential buyers.
While they appear bright, the output pattern won't be as effective as a halogen bulb or even HID conversion kit
LEDs are ideal for auxillary locations like fog lights, but aren't quite there for low-beam use yet.
Just for a reference, here's how we measure our products:Funny you say that because their advertising states this right in their ad:
"Designed in USA by GENSSI(TM) Real Engineering! True (Not Over Hyped like others) 2200-2400LM light output. Beware any higher noted by others is a false advertising."
They did out perform the stock halogens but are obviously no wheres near the 55W HID kit I've upgraded to.
They plug directly into the factory socket, and mount into the factory housing with minimal effort. As some have mentioned, you may need to make some adjustments to account for the base of the bulb on the XML2, but it's all fairly straightforward.
