I have a few of these if anyone needs them.

$20 shipped.

I have the truck lite LED headlights (plug and play from stock harness). Would this harness upgrade yield a noticeable difference?

I know it does on the stock head lights but the Truck Lights are top of the line so I am not sure. The thing these do is keep the power from going all the way to your head light switch and send it straight to your lights.

For a $20 upgrade it can't be bad, up to you though.

How do you like the Truck Lights, I have been thinking about it but man that is a lot of money for head lights.

They are amazing. It really spoils you when compared to other options. Literally the only downside is that they don't generate any heat so in winter you may have to wipe them down if there is heavy snow. But beyond that I think for the price, considering it is a rugged sealed unit that is plug and play and DOT approved it is a good value.

Yeah I guess for $20 couldn't hurt. Installation pretty easy?

Regarding the Trucklites, I doubt you'll get a noticeable difference in light output. The LED's draw significantly less than the halogens do. The heavy draw from the halogens is why people like to go to shorter, heavy gauge wire.

But, with that said, there are still benefits from upgrading the harness with LED's. You still get the benefit of not having high draw wire coming into your cab. You'll know for sure that you won't burn up any headlight switches. All this results in less draw on your alternator too.

For $20, I'd still do the harness with Trucklights. And FWIW, I could be wrong about marginal gains being had.

I have the quad headlights on my '89 Woody, one harness would take care of the low beams but my problem is I would be stuck with my stock plugs due to the two prong sealed beams. Any chance they would be damaged?

Thanks

To be honest I don't think I would use these at all. these are designed for two lights so it really isn't going to do you much good. However I believe there are 4 light sets available on ebay.
