In 2009 Truk-Lite introduced the FIRST 100% LED HEADLIGHT replacement housing for all 7″ round headlight housings. This headlight is called the “Phase 6″ or part number 27250C and uses 5 LED chips for high beam and 5 LED chips for low beam and drawing a maximum 4.5amps at 12 volts DC, all working together to produce up to 1,350 lumens of output light! This is very impressive, about 400 lumens brighter than most stock headlights and a plug and play LED alternative. We recently did a video review on this headlight and you can watch it here:
As you can see from the video it has good light output, but it is dwarfed by the performance of the JW Speaker #8700, 7″ Round LED headlamp. The Truck Lite brand LED headlight has been a popular favorite in the Jeep and classic cars community for years because of it’s lone place in the market until recently and it is still a great option. The headlight has a plastic/polycarbonate lens and an H4 style wire harness to make installation simple and efficient.
The final review of the Truck-Lite 7″ Round LED Headlights concludes that it is a very cool product, it is half the price of the JW Speaker counterpart, it looks great and is easy to install, and lastly the light output leaves something to be desired, but for the price you cannot beat it.
