Looks really nice mike. How does the down road visibility compare between the stock bulbs and the beamtechs?

Sorry no pics but, the light output is (no pun intended) night and day from the stock halogens. Nice bright white light now. No flickering, no error codes, DRLs work. So far very pleased and the price can't be beat! Fog lights are next!

In my opinion, I say they’re brighter than stocks. Had my wife check them out and she agrees with me as well. Haven’t seen any flicker. Highs are horrible but so we’re the stock so I’m ok with that. Happy with these so far.

I say the output is excellent for the price.

That is good to hear. Maybe it’s just my peepers but my trucks lights just don’t light up the road very well. Very little difference between low and high beam.

My other concern would be if new LED lights would be too bright and blind other drivers.

I'd say it's normal. It's probably just the draw that the starter is putting on the electrical system. Mine does it too. I'll bet if we'd been paying attention that they did it with the factory halogens also.
I never had my lights on auto or had DRL activated in FORScan when I had the halogens, so I wouldn't have seen any flicker when the starter was cranking.

As far as high/low beam difference - I can see where it throws the light further down the road. It's just not as intense as the low beam. That was also the case in my experience with the stock halogens and a supposedly better Sylvania halogen. These Beamtech are much better than those 2. Can't compare 'em to factory LED because I've never owned or ridden in a truck with them. But for $74 for all 4 bulbs I'm happy as hell with them.

In the month or so I've had the Beamtech installed, I've been flashed exactly one time. If it ever becomes a concern, the lights could be adjusted downward a bit.

Obviously an advertisement for Headlight Revolution. Probably not the most objective opinion.

Don't care who is advertising what. They showed 15 pairs and you can see it with your own eyes on all the different beam patterns. Some of those are just horrible.

It just goes to show what results are when putting a bulb in a housing that isn't designed for that bulb.

Several guys here have had problems with their products. Several have no problems with them.
I used their LED reverse lights myself. They work as they should, but HR isn't as forthcoming about what they have on hand to ship and what's backordered as they should be. I waited 10 days with no tracking information or updates. When I contacted them my bulbs had "just come in and will ship today". Others got the same reply when they inquired. HR is now off my list of places to buy.
I don't care what they're advertising either. How hard is it for them to manipulate what gets put on a YouTube video to put their stuff in the most favorable view?
I'm happy with what I bought and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than HR.
