2013 Las Vegas SEMA Coverage: The LED Lights – Part Three

SEMA is not all about the car builds and new car releases, it’s also about consumer product demonstrations and new products for enthusiasts. We at iJDMTOY have a keen eye on lights and especially LED lights; we saw quite a bit of LED products on cars that we thought we’d share with everyone! We saw LED angel eyes on other cars besides BMW’s, LED work lights, and other similar lights we carry at our store; we’ll share these photos to give you an idea of what you can accomplish with similar lights that we carry.

To start off, there are the angel eyes. There were a lot of LED angel eye lights on cars at SEMA that originally did not have them. It just goes to show you how cool these lights look on almost any vehicle out there. We are far from the old CCFL halo ring days of yesteryear and have now upgraded to brighter and better LED alternatives.

Since not every headlight is the same size so there are multiple LED ring sizes available that can be purchased. For example, larger headlights like on this Chevrolet Camaro require rings that are much larger than say a Honda Civic would.

One more example would this BMW. But most BMWs already come with angel eyes though, right? Yes, while this is true, the factory angel eye design is poor and does not allow the entire ring to be lit up evenly in most cases. This owner decided to put actual LED rings on top of his existing halo rings to create a better look for his car.

We’ll step away from the passenger car style and jump right into the off-road scene for a bit to show the LED work lights we saw on many off-road car builds. While you’re out in the desert, mud, or harsh terrain, regular city lights may not be enough light for safety issues. This is where high-output LED work bars and lights come into play.

Since LED work lights consume such a low amount of electricity, but produce a high output they are ideal for off-road vehicles that have other accessories such as winches, radios, and other important electronic equipment.

While we passed by luxury car builds, we spotted a similar looking LED setup that we sell on this Lexus GS350 with a particularly aggressive front bumper. The LED lights are arranged in an “L-shaped” pattern that can be achieved with our very similar 10 piece Flexible LED DRL kit on our website. Many of these lights are custom type projects so it’s not a direct replacement of any kind.

Any work environment – regardless how remote in location – need to have functional and energy efficient light systems. There is a variety of work lights, and light bulbs too, all coming together to liven up your day and night and productivity levels.
