I love mine, best $450 I have spent to date. I hated the stock headlights and the truck-lites light up the night without being offensive to on coming traffic.

I like the DDM's. Put a kit on my TJ. But I have a lot of aiming to do. I keep getting flashed as well. Personally I hate being blinded so I try not to do it to others.

Also my lights are making others flash me, which blinds me too. So nobody wins with that. Oh well, just gotta get em aimed below level a bit and that should solve most of the problem.

I think the Trucklite LED's are a great idea, especially for bulb longevity, but I just can't see paying $500 on some lights. I only payed $6,000 for the jeep, just doesn't seem very cost effective to me.

DDM tuning. They make HID kits. Crazy bright, something like 5,000 lumens on the 55w kit. But no DOT approved stamp anywhere.

So these, like most HID kits, probably not street legal. So I would suggest a headlight housing that IS DOT approved and stamped as such if you get these.

Bottom line though,
Plenty of light? yes.
legal in europe? yes.
legal in USA? doubt it.

That's another argument for the LED headlights i guess. Lots more light than stock, legal, but way too expensive.
