I haven’t seen much comparison on this and even Google search comes up with a lot of nothing.
I have been looking at putting a pair of Hella 500FF drivinglights on the front of my 4Runner; but I wanted to research and see if LED wasa better choice. While I don’t have the money to spend money on the Ridged and Baja Design LEDs, I was looking at the cheaper imported versions (hopefully from Hanma or Totron). I every time I look I seeing something else come out with an even brighter LED, I now see 10w Cree single row light bars.
I have updated the stock bulbs in my 4Runner: low beams are Philips Xtreme Power and in the high beams I have Philips HIR1s. I do a lot of rural highway driving late at night and I want to see better and brighter.
If I go the 500 route, I am not going to mod them to fit HID. I need to turn the lights off for oncoming traffic, thus 'flashing' HIDs isn’t good. Maryland allows you to run bright lights as long at you dim them.
So which LED light bar is comparable to the Hella 500FF lights?
