Question LED headlight kit question

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I posted. I have a question for everyone who might know if there is a LED headlight kit available for the MK3. My brother in law purchased an LED kit for his 03 to 04 lightning for a month prior to Christmas. We installed them in the truck a day after and let me tell you those bulbs are massive and FREAKISLY bright.

I have tried to search for a set from the same company to see if they were available, but no dice. I figured you guys would be the best chance to assist me in locating a company that makes a set for my car.

Which lights are you trying to change? I've got bulbs and load resistors for each front signal, as well as the sidemarker/parking lights on the way from superbrightleds.com.

I was looking to do the headlights. The kit he bought was the New Brights by CREE. if I'm not mistaking, the factory bulbs are a dual configuration.

Well I got my new LED bulbs put in. All I have say "what a big difference they make. Here are some pics of my car with the new bulbs in.

Here is the front of my car



Here is what they look like in the parking lot



And here is pic of them driving down the road (sorry the pic is blurry)



The brand of bulbs are from CREE and they are the New Brights 6400 Lumens LED headlights





They were on sale on Amazon for $149.00 for prime members about $400.00 for non-members. The low beam bulb part# H11 and the high beam part# H1. Best buy I have made, but there might be some trimming on the housing to fit the cooling fan the mounts to the bulb.

Can you get a picture of them shining on a wall? I'd like to see the light pattern. Be interesting to see how long they last too.

I can get you a pic of the light pattern tomorrow. They have a five year manufacturers warranty on them. I will definitely keep you posted on their performance.

Did you put them straight into the stock housings/reflectors? They seem really bright!

Yes, I used my factory headlight housings, reason why is because of the last dealership that serviced my car. I had them detail my car, the detail guy got his buffer to close to my headlight housings and burnt the top portion of the lens .

At that time I couldn't afford a new set of aftermarket housing to replace them. So I figured i would them to run these bulbs as a test bed to see what the pros and cons were. So far I have been amazed on how bright these highlights are.
