LED DRIVING LIGHTS

23Globetrotter 4 x STEDI Type X Sport

For those making the long overnight hauls, we understand that good lighting is essential. That being said we find that for the big rigs, you will never find yourself short of real estate to fit a vast combination of auxiliary driving lights to help you on your adventures. The photos are shown above display a few of our customer's setups that are both fitted with 4 of our Type X™ V1 LED Spot Lights which have been replaced in our range for the Type X™ PRO & Sport models. For most heavy road vehicles the harness in the box with our driving lights is suitable but will most likely need the 12v Relay swapped out for the 24v Relay alternative.

COMPLETE LED HEADLIGHT UPGRADES

STEDI Carbon Iris 7 Inch LED Headlight

We offer a small range of complete LED Headlight Conversions that will completely replace the globes and housing which are also ADR compliant. With the 7 Inch Carbon and Iris offering a complete upgrade for most trucks with 7 inch headlights, they are a complete unit with the LED, Reflector, and lens being manufactured as a single unit and parameters of performance well within the guidelines of ADR so it's as simple as to fit and forget. To check the full known list of compatible fittings via the specific product description.

In the near future, we are planning to expand into the square style LED Headlight Units, as they are a wider category it will require a little more homework at our end.

LED HEADLIGHT CONVERSIONS

As to just upgrading the headlight globes to LED, we offer a wide range of headlights, interior, or exterior globes. Our internal database on which globes suit which vehicles is ever-expanding but at this stage, our knowledge of trucks is a little limited. As we always state, if there are things regarding which globes you need throughout your vehicle, feel free to give us a call and we can help you identify the required globes.
