When it comes to full sized sedans, the Nissan Maxima ranks highest among the likes of the Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Azera, and the Chevy Impala. Straddling the line between practicality and luxury, The Maxima is a premium-tier car that offers standard luxury elements for a comfortable ride. Heated leather seats make for smooth entry into the spacey cabin, and an infotainment system rounds out the comprehensive and practical interior. At the front end Nissan created a “V-Motion” look that makes its curbside presence hard to ignore. But there’s always room for enhancement; just when you think you’ve been wowed, the RGB demon eyes LED strip module engages and you get blown away.
Last month, I wrote a blurb touting my admiration for the Lexus IS series as well as its upgradability when it comes to LED lighting. Coming from a Toyota background (my parents have been driving Toyotas for many years and has passed down their RAV4 to me), my adoration for the Lexus IS 250 comes from brand loyalty, the luxury vehicle’s sleek design, and the thought that I can see myself driving a Lexus well into my adulthood. And though I don’t really see myself adding aftermarket parts to it if I do come to own an IS 250, I can’t ignore its upgradability when it comes to JDM style LED fog lights. I discovered some pictures of the JDM style LED fog lights on a Lexus IS 350 that was featured in AutoCon 2016.
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.
One car light that many people don’t give much thought to is the rear license plate light; outside of looking at our rear view mirror and side mirrors, we don’t pay much attention to what’s behind us nor can we see it. Since the 1970s, every manufactured vehicle in the United States come equipped with rear license plate lights. Because this is standard equipment on our vehicle, we put it by the wayside in favor of other “sexy” car lights. But that doesn’t mean license plate lights can’t have flair either.
Occasionally, we rent GMCs from U-Haul to transport our products because we find their service to be reliable. We can always count on them to provide clean pick-up trucks with no issues. This time around, we discovered an opportunity to test our new LED light bar. The opportunity especially worked out because the GMC model we rented was a Sierra 1500, which was exactly the trim we wanted to test on. And so, we decided to take liberties with our rental truck to install our new behind the grille 150W LED Light Bar for the 2014-up GMC Sierra 1500.
