Morimoto FORD RAPTOR (16-20): XB LED HEADLIGHTS
If you don't have LED powered headlights on your Ford Raptor, then you're just behind the times! Thankfully the new Morimoto XB LED headlights: Look great. Are well-built. Have a virtually infinite life span. An unbeatable warranty, and out-perform the alternatives. Easily making them the best Raptor LED headlights on the market today.
SECOND GEN UPDATE: The 16+ Raptor 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 Raptor are back on top, and will be hard to top, period!
MORE LIGHT OUTPUT: The original Raptor 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.
At Morimoto we live, eat, and sleep headlights. While the Raptor 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.
PERFORMANCE: We've always been blown away by the fact that the other brands don't even consider how well their headlights perform on the road at night. Most often, they're a downgrade compared to even the standard halogen setup, and that's a shame. The good news is that Morimoto's XB LED headlights produce a well-defined beam pattern with a great amount of width, intensity, and a proper distribution of light.
OEM+ 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. PLEASE NOTE: On the Amber/Raptor edition, the LED DRL is extremely bright and DOES NOT DIM (just like the OE LED headlights)
PLUG-N-PLAY: Wiring is easy too! The XB Raptor LED headlights are designed to work 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 LEDs and is insanely bright, easily visible during the day. At the top of the housings, a row of LED's provides the turn signal function. You can set them up to run as sequential or solid signals according to your preference.
WELL-BUILT: Their UV-coated polycarbonate lens will resist the test of time, ensuring your Raptor 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 complete headlights may be new to the market, but Morimoto's XB LED fog lights have proven themselves perfect after 5+ years out now, which is confidence inspiring.
THEY LOOK: Amazing. At least in our opinion! The subtle elements incorporated in their design are more than enough to make them stand out, but they're clean enough to be considered original equipment to those who don't know any better. The piano black trim and smoked gray reflectors keep the color scheme neutral, and the quad kuria-optic projectors are as modern as it gets.
CUSTOMIZABLE: Thinking about paint-matching some OEM LED headlights from Ford? Forget it man. Those things are nearly impossible to open up and then reliably re-seal. Going that route, you'll be facing hours and hours of labor and a high probability for "hack job" status in the end. With Morimoto's Raptor LED headlights, that job is painless! Since they're sealed with Butyl Rubber, they are much easier to open, customize/paint and then reseal!

Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up.
Got these shipped super quick, and installed them just as quick. Plenty of videos on YouTube to walk through the install. They are super bright and the DRL is super bright. The start up sequence is neat but I hardly see it. Do notice when the engine stop start kicks back in at a light they do flicker a little. Doesn't really bother me but is noticeable, will most likely tune stop/start off on my truck.
