    Yep. Everything I've seen so far is that any aftermarket LED bulb doesn't perform as well as a proper HID kit. They might look brighter up close, but have bad throw compared to HIDs. I am running LED highbeams, because they were free and I never use my highbeams...auxiliary lighting > highbeams.

    Factory LEDS are a different story though...

    I run the Saber Pro led high beams and they are monsters. They seriously are just as bright if not slightly brighter than my light bar.

    The factory headlights for Shaunas IS350 F are $1200 a side so I'm guessing the quality is higher than the pair of LEDs I got for $80 on Amazon.

    My buddy actually gave me this one, and he had it mounted where you said. So I couldn’t copy him.

    Also, everyone needs to know I have a Yeti product. Did you notice it’s a Yeti product? Because it is.

    Shameless plug for my buddy Lance... He's running a booth for Ram at the Mule open house. He's got access and knowledge of a lot more than the standard mounts, so if you have any strange needs, look him up.

    Strange needs, eh?

    There's a part of me that wants to check out the open house, there's a bigger part of me that hates crowds. Have fun for those that are going.

    I've been using the Propex a bunch. I used it Montana a bunch, and now Nevada.

    Doesn't smell like a Mr Buddy, seems very fuel efficient, and heats up the camper pretty well.

    I definitely recommend it.
