LED bulb in projector housing?

I searched all over for this and cant find an answer

On the 14s with the hologen projector headlights..are you able to put a ..(for example Lifetime LED bulb) in the projector housing?

instead of using a HID kit and ballasts..I like the look of LED bulbs.

An hour and twenty one minutes is hardly enough time for one to determine that this forum is not knowledgeable.

You are requesting whether or not a LED bulb will fit in the projector headlights. The answer is yes. If the LED bulb is designed as a replacement bulb, then it will fit. Meaning, if the LED bulb has a H11 base, then it will fit in the H11 housing. There are plenty of people here that will tell you that the output of an LED bulb doesn't compare to a halogen, yet. If all your looking for is "look", you can get HIDs in different temp ranges. I'm not sure what "look" you're going for.

Personally, I think that 12K is the best light output you can get. The higher the better!

For sure. 12K is for amateurs. 25K is what all the cool kids from the city are running now. Personally I like the new laser lights.

Aaaactually, I think I read here that those type of LED bulbs extend too far out the back (heatsink/fan) and won't clear the crap in the engine bay right behind the headlight; so you need to pull out the headlight to install it or something along those lines?

But I know that's not even what OP was asking about, lol.

Besides, kelvins are overrated, I prefer gamma rays myself, makes everyone in front of you glow and much more visible at night!

Were you too busy being offended to read my response? I said, you might run into clearance issues because those bulbs stick out too far on the 10'-13' models. Might need to take the headlight off to install it, or maybe it won't fit at all on the 2014 since the headlights are shaped differently, no idea because I don't have one.

Why don't you just chill out and research yourself a bit instead of running straight to the forum to ask every single question on your mind? We all start somewhere yes, but we all are also capable of doing some of the leg work.

FWIW, I looked at that brand's website you want to buy the bulbs from. IMO they lost all credibility when they stated that the H11 LED are DOT compliant, when that's absolutely a bald face lie.

Believe what you want, but I'm fairly certain it's going to perform like shiat, unless you don't actually care about the light output, lol.

I'm sorry you feel that way. If you noticed, I specifically answered your question as accurately as I could. And @eddiebx specifically mentioned another thread where someone had trouble with the depth of some bulbs.

I merely mentioned the other 2 members as an ongoing joke. You're going to have to have a better sense of humor and/or thicker skin. Maybe it's just because I have some rapport with the other gents in this thread, but all the teasing was more intended for each other.

The problem with a few of the new guys every now and then is they come here thinking they are "entitled" to an answer even though they have done nothing to help themselves first. Many guys one here have spent countless of hours documenting mods and answering questions just to see that same question asked a few days later. You asked in another thread you started about price. Never mind there is a huge thread on the same page discussing best price out the door for 2014 models! It was on the same page! It's easy to ask, not so easy sometimes to answer. Good luck.

I did research quite a bit..could find no answer..Im talking about Lifetime LED light.Yes I do like a HID look over a halogen bulb...I was thinking maybe a LED bulb would look good though...Ive seen some pretty good quality ones

.I shall call them..its too late now to do so.

Is this not what a forum is for? I mean really after awhile you will run out of topics if its not for helping others especially newer owners.


Good luck n thanks anyway.

Ill bite

I research things on my own first / always. from A to Z...I am a detective so I think I do a pretty good research job....I just don't blindly log on with every though / question I have and expect an answer....n yes I saw the price thread but numbers where all over the place and most sr5 were from 12/2013

Like I said if topics aren't ask you will run out of things to discuss on a forum.even if it has been covered..not that big of a deal to help someone.

Yes actually I was...I believe that's a very good quality LED..( from what Ive read)

was thinking it could be an alternative to an HID kit in the projector housing?
