This is a set of 2 LED Headlight housings that will fit into the 7″ Round bucket that came stock with 80-85 Vanagons and are also used on later model Vanagons that have the SA Grill Kit. These lights are very bright but they are DOT approved, and they also have a illuminated “halo” ring that will glow white for running lights, or flash yellow along with your turn signals (additional wiring required to get the “halo” feature working though). You can pretty much just plug and play these if you don’t care about the “halo” ring feature.
LED lights are very bright, and use about half of the amperage of the stock lights (even less if you are dealing with high wattage halogens). The advantages are long life, bright, white light, and the lower amperage unloads the electrical system so that you don’t need relays to save your headlight switch.
The only slight modification you will have to do is bend one of the three indentations of the headlight bucket where the light sits in the bucket. It is just a hair too big to fit as is. I used a set of grips and then just picked the indentation that was the easiest to get to, and tweaked that about 1/32″ until the light fit in snugly. Takes just a minute and no special tools. Watch our video to get an idea of what they are like installed:
