Morimoto Ford F-150 (18-20): XB LED Headlights - LF501.2-ASM
NO SUBSTITUTES: If you're still running oldschool halogen headlights on your 18-20 Ford F150, then you're just behind the times! If you're running a set of different aftermarket headlights, well, these should make you second guess that decision. The second gen Morimoto XB LED F150 headlights: Look amazing. Are well-built. Have a virtually infinite life span. An unbeatable warranty, and out-perform all of the alternatives. Easily making them the best LED headlights on the market today for the F150.
SECOND GEN UPDATE: The 18+ F150 XB headlights broke the internet when they came out... and while they were the undisputed king for quite a while, other options from brands like Alpharex came out that offered a little more light. In true Morimoto fashion, nothing gets left alone for long and now there is no question: The XB LED Heads for the F150 are back on top, and will be hard to top, period!
MORE LIGHT OUTPUT: The original F150 XB heads used two projectors on top for the low beam, and two on the bottom as a dedicated high beam. The new setup utilizes all four projectors for the low beam and has a dual Bi-LED setup for the high beam. The results? 200% more light output and a better distribution of light for improved visibility in the distance and off to the sides of the road. Asked and answered!
START-UP SEQUENCE: And if the optical upgrades weren't enough, the badass start up sequence has been added too. When the Daytime Running light kicks on, the projectors illuminate in a two-stage sequence before turning back off. A video is worth a thousand words here... so make sure to watch the one embedded in the listing to see that in action! While it does absolutely nothing for performance, you can't deny the cool-factor!
DOT APPROVED: Make no mistake, these will produce a much different [better] result than slapping some LED replacement bulbs into your stock housings. Their quad-projector optics meet & exceed all SAE, DOT, and FMVSS108 regulations when aimed properly...and that's easy to do with their integrated vertical/lateral adjusters. US market lights are equipped with amber side markers.
PLUG-N-PLAY: Wiring is easy too! The Morimoto F150 LED headlights are designed to work on your truck without any modifications. They will plug into the factory connectors for the stock headlights and each assembly includes all necessary connectors, rubber seals, and pigtails for a plug n play install. No error codes, no flickering, hyper-flashing, or radio interference. They can easily be removed and will not void your factory warranty.
SEQUENTIAL LED DRL: Game Changer! Their LED daytime running light is powered by Osram 5000K LEDs and is insanely bright, easily visible during the day. A separate optic that's dedicated to the turn signal function uses amber LED's to produce a full sequential turn signal. While that feature will cause others to mistake your truck for an Audi; for those who are a bit more traditional they can also be setup to run as solid on/off style signals too.
WELL-BUILT: Their UV-coated polycarbonate lens will resist the test of time, ensuring your truck's new headlights will look good as new for many years to come. The PPS plastic housing is light-weight and much stronger than comparable alternatives. The die-cast aluminum heat-sinks inside the housings provide more than an adequate amount of cooling for the OEM grade Osram LED chips that produce the light. These use the same external housing / lens from the gen one version, and those have held up like OEM after a few years on the market.
OEM PLUS: We live, eat, and sleep headlights. While the F150 LEDs from Morimoto cost a bit more relative to other options in the aftermarket; as the saying goes "you pay for what you get". We've seen it all, and their fit and finish is far superior to everything else out there. Guaranteed.
THEY LOOK: Amazing. At least in our opinion! The design of the second Gen F150 LED heads was inspired by the OEM LED headlights from the new Ford Expedition. The subtle elements incorporated in their design are more than enough to make them stand out, but they're clean enough to be considered top of the line original equipment to those who don't know any better. The piano black trim and smoked gray diffusers keep the color scheme neutral, and the quad kuria-optic projectors are as modern as it gets.
Headlights turn yellow after a year , the lens isn’t completely seal proof , dust seals in and lens becomes foggy . Too expensive for the problems they have , and to get a hold of morimoto is impossible
