Light It Up: The Best LED Car Accessories

May 03, 2018



LED lighting accessories are one of the most exciting upgrades that can be done to any vehicle.

Lights both inside and outside a vehicle generally get a lot of attention because most likely, they make themselves known during any routine mundane driving excursion. But, for some people, these lights can quickly lose their shine functionality wise and even fun wise. Not to worry, there are a few exciting accessories to bring the “lights” back into your vehicle’s lighting system. Let’s look at some of them.

Wsiiron LED Multicolor Car Interior Lights



Stopping short of letting you turn your car into a makeshift disco hall, this interior lighting kit can do so much more. A plug and play easy to install process first gets you on your way. Then, an integrated music and voice sensor enables you to toggle through eight different color options dependent on music rhythm and voice pattern. For more traditional functions, a handy remote control can adjust the brightness and also can be used to quickly select a desired interior light color. All this for under $20.

Nilight LED Light Bar



These set of unique lighting systems have a flood LED technology. Several reflector cups help emit a wider beam of light and eliminates unsightly shadows. Depending on your preference, there are six configurations available including a 54-inch curved version. For protection against the elements, this lighting set is certified to be waterproof up to 3.3 feet. Things to note: These are for off-road use only and they are also not DOT approved.

Philips Vision Upgrade Headlight Bulb



Sometimes, your normal headlight setup may slowly begin to fail you and provide insufficient lighting for safe driving. Philips has a simple and cheap solution with their Vision Upgrade series. Apart from giving you thirty percent more vision after being tested against a standard low beam bulb, these bulbs are also DOT compliant to avoid you from breaking headlight regulations. Prices start from $12.73.

The Best Off-Road LED Lights

The Best Off-Road LED Lights That Won’t Break the Bank

Jun 08, 2018



Off-road lighting is an essential part of the off-roading enthusiast toolkit. Like winches and lift kits, spotlights and light bars are useful when out on the trails. Here are some of the best off-road LED lights we could find.

While no light pollution provides some of the most stunning night skies, it also covers trails in complete darkness. Standard headlights often don’t cut it. Unfortunately, many might think a good set of off-road lights can be expensive, particularly a new set of LED-based lights. Now, thanks to how common LED technology has become, light bars and spots are brighter, more efficient and lower maintenance than ever before. Best of all, there is now a big selection of LED powered lights for any budget.

When looking for a set of LED lights for off-roading, you should consider what you’re currently driving and the places you have to mount them. You should also look for lights with a good waterproof rating, so they can handle getting a little dirty when things get going. Also, consider the materials that make up the light; plastic may be resistant to rust, but it can be brittle when cold. Aluminum is typically more durable and rust resistant. Compare the lumens output the unit is capable of and make sure the power requirements aren’t more than your wiring can handle.

Depending on the size of your vehicle, or the kind of off-roading you will be doing, a light bar may be the most efficient solution. A single strip of LED lights in a variety of length, they can cast a lot of light lumens down the trail ahead. Liteway’s 12 inch 8640LM LED light bar is fully waterproof to the IP68 standard. The universal fit means it can be attached to the bumper, hood or grille. Light beam both floods and acts as a spot on the trail ahead. This all aluminum LED bar puts out an impressive 8640 lumens of power. Need more light? There are also 33″ and 50″ options available.




LEDs can be used in a traditional pod style light as well. These smaller individual pods allow you to customize the shape and layout. They also fit in places light bars won’t. Stick them on bumpers, grilles, roof racks; just about anywhere you can safely mount them. Because LEDs use a lot less electricity than halogen bulbs, and last many times longer, LED pods are a great low maintenance, low cost option. With three rows of LED lights, Liteway LED pods are waterproof, dustproof and only four inches wide.



One of the key elements missing from LED bars and spots, like the ones above, is that classic round shape. There’s something about the classic ribbed glass, rounded off-road lights. Look no further than these traditionally styled LED pods from SafeGo. Choose from either flood or spot configurations; or both, depending on what you need. These add a modern touch to any classic off-road machine, but at a cost even a tight budget can fit.

Upgrade to USA-Made PUTCO LED Lighting

Why It’s Time To Upgrade to USA-Made PUTCO LED Lighting

May 01, 2019



If you’re like me, your OEM lights just aren’t cutting it anymore. Or maybe it’s time to add a little style with some custom LED lighting. Either way, when you’ve made the decision to upgrade, Putco makes the next step easier.

Over the last decade, LED lighting has come way down in price, which has opened the door for all kinds of replacements for older style halogen bulbs. While the market gets bigger one maker stands apart from the rest. Putco has been manufacturing high-quality accessories for cars, trucks, and SUVs for over 50 years. In this time, a great deal of research and development have gone into LED lighting, which includes everything from state-of-the-art headlight kits to direct fit LED badges, many of which are manufactured, designed or assembled at their facility located here in the U.S.


PUTCO Nitro-Lux™ LED headlight kits



With an ever-expanding list of accessories for your vehicles, it can be a challenge to know exactly where to start. When it comes to my trucks, the first thing on my list is improving down road visibility. Putco’s unique Nitro-Lux™ LED bulb features a patented woven heat sink with an integrated anti-flicker circuit built directly into the driver. The patented heat sink provides superior heat dissipation, fits in the limited space available in most modern headlight housing and is a solid-state design which means no moving parts and minimal parts failure. The Nitro Lux headlight kit is the culmination of all the experience and technological developments learned from previous generations of LED headlight kits wrapped into one cutting edge bulb. If you’re swapping out your headlight bulbs take a step to the next level and get the best kits available.

PUTCO LumaCore™ LED Bulbs




Upgrading OEM bulbs doesn’t stop with the headlights for this truck up-fitter. Brake lights, turn signals, and reverse lights are just as crucial and easy to replace. Putco’s LumaCore™ LED bulbs are a new and affordable option with a few added features that work with their existing plug and play resistor kits to prevent error codes after install. For a little extra roadside safety Putco added Quick Pulse LED’s to the LumaCore™ line-up which flash 3 times after engaging your brakes then stay on to simulate warning taps that so many drivers already do when coming to a stop or slowing in dense traffic. The lightning-fast signal response makes this new product a must have.

PUTCO Blade LED Tailgate light bars



While we’re working our way around the back end of a vehicle, I have got to mention the Blade® series light bars. These aftermarket additions are really popular on mid and full-size trucks for a good reason. They look great, and provide extra visibility when braking, signaling, or throwing it in reverse. The chip on board light bar has over 2,000 LED’s on the 60” version which kicks out 3,000 lumens of illumination, that’s Bright with a capital B. This Blade light bar is available in 3 different sizes 60”, 48”, and 36” in red/white/amber or red/white color options. Both the Blade® and Red Blade™ are IP69K rated and are backed by a stellar warranty program.

PUTCO Luminix® LED Ford Emblems



Now I’m going to step away from the realm of OEM upgrades to tip my hat to some Putco® LED products that are just plain cool. If you’re a Ford owner, this is a must-have… These badge replacements are carefully designed to guarantee a seamless fit and install directly off the OEM badge mounts. This also means they’ve undergone the rigorous testing to ensure there is zero moisture or dirt ingression (unlike some cheaper options being pushed under the radar). The emblems are equipped to function with or without a camera and lens washing packages. While they do add extra visibility on the road this more of a head turner than anything. Front and rear emblems are sold separately.



PUTCO® Luminix® High Power LED Fog Lights




Putco® offers a comprehensive series of LED options under its popular Luminix® flagship brand. This includes straight and curved aluminum light bars milled from solid billet 6061 aluminum, potted with Putco’s proprietary 2-part epoxy, all made here in the USA. Of the wide variety of mounting solutions, one of my favorites is their direct fit fog lights. The LED fog lights are equipped with OEM connectors and utilize existing fog lamp housing for a seamless look and straight forward installation. The black anodized finish gives it a sleek custom appearance while the 1,200-lumen output delivers a clean 6000K light perfect for cutting through fog. It’s the perfect melding of performance, functionality, and style… three traits that keep me coming back to Putco for my next LED install.
