Fiercer, More Impressive Truck Lighting: What to Know
Truck drivers are often expected to get down and dirty, to revel in their trucks’ rough riding capabilities
and not care about what their trucks look like after all is said and done. But
this is stereotyping at its most pervasive. Many truck drivers, in fact, care
a great deal about the aesthetic appeal of their trucks, and lighting is among the most critical aesthetic components on any
vehicle. If you’re looking to light up your truck in some unconventional
and impressive ways, consider several of the options below and decide which one is best for you.
you’re focusing on the headlights, standard halogens are fine and all but they don’t do much to make a visual
impact. Since most cars and trucks are equipped with halogen headlights, they
don’t really stand out. HID headlights, on the other hand, are hard to
ignore. They may take a little extra installation time (potentially a lot if
your truck’s an older model), but they can illuminate the road up to 3x as brightly as halogens, and can last multiple
times as long. For truck drivers who value durability and longevity as much as
style and performance, truck
may be the way to go.
Maybe we should call this category under-truck lighting so it’s more accurate. Trucks are often raised off the ground quite a bit higher than most cars and passenger vehicles, which
makes them primed for undercar lighting add-ons. Neon tubes, LED strips, and
all sorts of other lighting attachments can make a truck look race-ready, visually impressive, and simply fun. If your truck’s just as much a toy as it is a workhorse, undercar lighting is an option to consider.
LED Tail Lights
If you’re leaving other cars in your dust, you should let them see your truck
drive off to the bittersweet end. Many conventional tail lights simply don’t
illuminate very far, but LED tail lights certainly do. If you want a bright,
ultramodern, and visually appealing set of truck tail lights, LEDs will certainly make a positive impression. They should be relatively simple to install, and can even put some resale value back into your truck.
