I use AuxBeam on my truck, because Rigid is EXPENSIVE. I sell Rigid/AuxBeam/Baja Designs but even at my cost, it's expensive. AuxBeam work great I've found. No issues leaking, some of the same features as on Rigid. I'm looking to add more though. I want to add some Baja Designs lights on the hood but can't find a mount for my 2015 F-150. I also use my own branded (I work directly with the manufacturer) LED Headlights and LED Fog Light bulbs.

If you guys want to put one together I'm down for it. I can't advertise one however as I'm not a forum vendor, but yeah I'll extend a discount. Just let me know what products you are looking for and I'll let you know the #'s I can do.

Brand? AuxBeam is the cheaper line, but gets great reviews. Rigid are the best, but they are expensive. I have the 54" AuxBeam. I could offer you guys a few sizes and if we can do local pickup I'd be able to save you even more rather then drop shipping each bar. Figure out what sizes you guys want and let me know and I'll see what #'s I can work out. Maybe one of you can head up this "group buy" and just let me know what you guys want and i'll pass the discount #'s on to you.

I don't need a light bar but how about headlight LED bulbs? That might be easier as there would be less models to come up with a group buy. I would be interested in 9006 and 9005 headlight bulbs for my S-10 and H7's for my Honda GoldWing.

I have a question regarding LED headlamp bulbs. My truck ('06 Trailblazer) runs the headlamps at 50% fit DRL's which has prevented me from installing HID's thus far; is that an issue with LEDs as well?

Seems like you get what you pay for when it comes to LED's, so read reviews. I bought some off-brand (nilight?? on amazon IIRC). They worked great initially, super bright but condensation got into the lights and trashed the reflectors. Once it gets fogged up inside it's too late. So now I'm looking for replacements. Will probably go with LED again.

One thing I didn't see mentioned is that the LED's pick up eyeshine really well. Lot's of deer on my ride home and I credit my lights for giving me an early warning on a few occasions.

I had HIDs on my Trailblazer with no issues. Just need a relay harness.

I know it can be done, but I don't want to give up the DRL's

relay harness will just give them full juice. Should still work as DRLs just wont cause any issues with the ballasts due to being under powered.

I forgot there are two mods; the original one killed the DRL's... I'll check it out.

Another question about the bulbs (I think mine calls for 9005); how is the heat output? My concern would be melting the housing? Do they run hotter out cooler than HID's?

No, I don't sell AuxBeam headlights. I sell all of their products but don't list their headlights. I sell my own headlights that I work with a manufacturer overseas to obtain. Best on the market that I've seen honestly.

Heat output is fine. LED's run cooler then halogen, even with the heat they do generate, it's still cooler. No issues melting housings and I run them in my fog lamp housings.
