I’m sure that you have seen Silverado trucks and the like drive around with an LED light bar on top in your area, some less than others like me who live in SoCal. But they do pop up every once in a while! Whenever I see one drive by, generic rock music plays in my head as I think about how macho and freaking big the truck that whizzed past me was. And then I see the LED light bar set on top and I think, “Man that must be super bright. Would I get blinded looking at it?”
So a typical LED light bar gives drivers the visibility they need for mountain driving, dark, rural areas, and construction sites while giving the truck a rugged, manly, and macho feel to it right? What about the lower bumper grill mounted 20″ 100W LED light bar for the 2011-2013 Chevy Silverado 1500? Perhaps… not so much.
Toyota officially scrapped its Scion line in August of last year in response to young adults’ changing attitudes about the Toyota brand as a utilitarian brand for their parents. They have become more and more practical in the past few years. I fall in this demographic and despite being disappointed about the Scion brand being buried, I actually agree with this decision. As a high schooler, I thought Scions were really cool looking but as I grew older I slowly changed my mind about them; I didn’t see myself driving a Scion for too long cause I felt I’d outgrow it before long.
While the brand scrapping is still fresh, this still means that Scions are becoming rare and vintage, qualities which are pillars of the JDM world; it doesn’t matter how old a car is as long as it’s a decent enough body to work with right? Scions have a sleeker and sportier look than most other cars which makes for great bases for aftermarket parts such as the brilliant red LED 3rd brake light DIY conversion kit.
Last week, I posted a few pictures of a red Dodge to feature our Dodge RAM 1500 dual CREE LED fog lights. When I got this assignment, the pictures given to me certainly caught my attention. These aren’t ones that I made, found, or photoshopped. Whereas most of our pictures are mostly untouched, these photos show use of filters to look stylized and otherworldly. I could just ask my boss, “Why these Ram truck pictures in particular?” But I think speculating would be more fun. I’m sure he’ll tell me once he sees this blog.
When it comes to trekking the great outdoors, there’s nothing quite like the Jeep Wrangler. Everything about it just screams outdoors, from the shape of its frame, to its all-terrain tires, to the lighting utility it provides. Yes, you can always count on a Jeep Wrangler for any and all offroad occasions including mountain driving, camping, and so much more! And while it provides a sufficient amount of light for rural areas or nighttime occasions, there is always room for more lighting, including the A-pillar mounted 40W CREE LED pod lights.
While I can’t imagine adding aftermarket parts to what to me is the perfect car to have, its hard to ignore the upgradability of the Lexus IS. Besides a new set of rims, one part that can be easily upgraded is its set of fog lights. Fog lights add to the lighting capabilities of the Lexus’s head lights and daytime running lights. And even though the stock fog lights are decent enough as it is, wouldn’t it be nice to change its color? With the JDM style 15W high powered LED fog lamps, you can.
