Hey, guys. I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and this is my quick review and breakdown of the LED Projector Headlights and Smoked for the year 2009 through 2014 F-150. So in this video, I'm gonna give you guys a good idea of who these might appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then, last but not least, we're gonna take a look at the install. But right off the bat, we're gonna be giving this a light to a moderate one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, as there's going to be some minimal wiring involved, and you should have these on your truck in about an hour and a half tops.
So if you're the F-150 owner that's not too thrilled with just how aggressive your front-end looks, and you're looking to make a bold statement as well as drastically improve your driving lights, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit, as you could throw that much more light than you would see with the standard factory incandescent bulb. So the headlights I've got in front of me are definitely going to make a big and bold statement, be it on or off road as they're going to feature a dual-LED halo design, as well as featuring a projector. Like I said, this is going throw that much more light than your standard factory incandescent bulb. Additionally, we're gonna see directly underneath, you're gonna have two different banks of LED lighting, which, in my opinion, actually match pretty well with the existing halos. Now, I do want to say that it's definitely tough to get a decent idea how these are gonna look online, or in a magazine, but they're actually not that bad looking.
So taking a quick look at the construction here, these are gonna be manufactured utilizing OEM CAD data to ensure that you're gonna have a precise fit. Not only that, you're gonna have the dual LED halos like we mentioned previously. They're gonna give the front-end of your truck a little bit more of a modern and aggressive flair. Last but not least, you're gonna have two different banks of LEDs directly underneath, which I do think are gonna match pretty nicely with the design here. So the projector is gonna be the main point of this setup, and it's essentially what you're gonna be paying for here. Again, I can't stress this enough, that your factory-style incandescent bulb is gonna be actually an older style, outdated design, despite just how new these trucks are. Again, a projector is going to throw that much more light than you would see for any type of off-the-shelf bulb that you would buy at your local parts store.
Now, in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending right around 400 bucks for this set, which in my opinion, really isn't bad, but I might suggest taking a look at the CCFL style as the halo rings are gonna be a little bit brighter, and the difference in price here is only about 30 bucks. So when you use the comparison with some other options out there, what you could do is pick up a set of FX4 headlights which might charge you a little bit of an arm and a leg, or pick up a replacement set of headlights, and then throw an HID conversion kit in there. Now, while HID conversion kits are definitely on the bright side, there's a ton of different brands out there, and I would definitely be cautious if we're looking to go that route. Not only that, if it's an inferior-build quality, it might have bad effects on your headlights, like maybe even melting your harness, or even the housing itself. So, again, for the money here, you ought to be getting a projector, which is going to be that much brighter than that of your factory bulb, as well as hovering some nice LED halos, which are gonna be accented by the LED strips on the bottom of the headlight itself.
So in terms of the installation, just like I had said at the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at a light to a moderate one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and about an hour and a half to get these onto your truck. Now, I say that because there's gonna be some very minimal wiring that's gonna be done here, but you're gonna have instructions from the manufacturer, as well as a ton of different install guys that are gonna be online, to get these onto your truck. You're essentially only gonna need a ratchet as well as a 10-millimeter socket. You're looking at three bolts here, and then you're essentially gonna move over your turn signal, and then the tricky part is gonna be the wiring. Now, I say tricky just because if this isn't in your wheelhouse, and if you're uncomfortable with doing it, there's absolutely no shame with having somebody install these for you. You'd only be looking at probably about an hour's worth of labor, maybe a little bit more. But, when it comes down to it, what you're gonna have to do is take these two different banks of LED wiring, and then run them into your parking lights. So that's gonna be so that you can utilize the halos as well as the lower-back LEDs, and then turn on your projector when you want to. So the install here is definitely gonna be another huge selling point for me as, if you've ever put your headlights before, or if you have replaced a bulb, you know just how easy it is. You're looking at three volts, but there's a little bit of guesswork with the wiring, but again, you're gonna have some very detailed instructions from the manufacturer, and again, you're only looking at just a little wiring into your parking lights to get these on. Again, about an hour and a half in the garage, and a light to a moderate one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter.
All right, just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the F-150 owner that, again, is just not too thrilled with how mundane the front-end of your truck looks, and you're looking to make a very bold and aggressive statement, but not only that, you want to make sure your headlights are throwing that much more lighting in comparison to that of a factory incandescent bulb, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit for your truck. So that's my quick review and breakdown for the Dual LED Projector Headlights and Smoked fitting your 2009 through 2014 F-150, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
