Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Alex from americanmuscle.com, here today with my quick review and breakdown of the Black Dual Projector Style LED Headlights, fitting your 2009 through 2014 F-150 without HID lights. So, in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kit's going to appeal to, what you should be expecting in terms of light output and performance, the construction and materials that went into these, what you should expect to be spending, and then what it's gonna take to get these installed, where I'm gonna be giving these a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor to get these onto your truck. And I'll have a little bit more for you on that later.So, the Black Dual Projector Style LED Headlights that I have here today should definitely appeal to any F-150 owner out there that's not too thrilled with just how mundane their front end looks and wants to get into something that's not only gonna be a little bit more aggressive-looking, but budget-friendly, that's not gonna hurt your wallet at the end of the day. So, these dual light projectors that I have here today are gonna be a sure-fire way to ensure that your F-150 is gonna be getting a nice dose of modern styling, as well as throwing a considerable more amount of light. Some of the cool features that I really like here, first and foremost, we're gonna see that the entire housing here is gonna be black, but the lens will be clear. Additionally, we'll see that you're gonna have three LEDs right here, two LED halos, and then your main projector, or your low-driving beam, will be right here. I do wanna call it out that is gonna be an LED dual projector style. You're only gonna be getting one projector right here. Your high beam's gonna be a standard style.So to piggyback onto the construction and materials here, guys, we're gonna see the main focal point, in my opinion, is going to be the lower projector here, or your low beam, which is then gonna be accented by both the LED halos. Now, you can definitely get away with running these during the day, if you're looking for that daytime running light look, or if you wanna run them during the night on an auxiliary switch to make it a little bit more individual and personalized, you can definitely do so. And I'll talk about that a little bit more later.So, in terms of the configuration here, guys, we're gonna see that both the low and high beam is gonna feature in H1 style configuration. And if you're looking to custom-tailor the look of your truck that much further, you can mix and match different style bulbs, be it a standard incandescent or an LED style. But for what you're gonna be getting here, I personally think those are gonna be much brighter than what you might find with a factory incandescent bulb, as well as being a little bit brighter if you were to pick up a set, say, off of, like, an FX4 or any other style trim F-150.So, in terms of the pricing here, you should expect to be spending only about $200 for this set, which in my opinion is definitely gonna be a steal. These are gonna be very budget-minded for someone that's looking to overhaul their front end, as well as get away with some really cool accent lighting. Now, on the flip side here, there's gonna be a ton of other styles out there, and they could easily surpass $1,000 in price, or if you're just looking for a used set of blacked out headlights, like off of an FX4, you're gonna see that they, too, can easily get really up there in terms of pricing.So, switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're gonna be looking at a very simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about an hour's worth of labor to get these onto your truck. Now, the ease of install here is definitely a huge selling point for me, as a 2014 F-150 owner, as it should be for anybody else out there that's gonna be after this style of look for your front end, as you're really not looking at rocket science here. You're mainly gonna be pulling three different bolts here, two up here, one on the side, and doing a little bit of wiring work here, and this is definitely one of those instant gratification style mods. To get these onto your truck, you're gonna need a basic socket set, a little bit of patience, and maybe a six-pack of beer. Now, I will add that the LEDs, as well as the halos, will need to be wired in, and if you're uncomfortable with doing this, there's absolutely zero shame with taking this down to a local dealer or a body shop to have the work done. The cool thing that I really like about the LEDs, as well as the halos, is that you're gonna have the ability to wire them into either your parking lights, or, like I said before, if you wanted to pick up an auxiliary switch to further customize that look, you can have the ability to turn them on or off individually.All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts, if you're the '09 through '14 F-150 owner and you're just not too happy with how your front end looks, you're looking to get into something that's not only gonna be a little more modern-looking that's gonna feature the LED halos, but more aggressive, as well as throwing more light with the projector, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit for your rig. So, that's my quick review and breakdown of the Black LED Dual Projector Style Headlights, fitting the 2009 through 2014 F-150 without HID lighting, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
