Whether you are heading to the job site early, or loading up after nightfall, if you work or play long hours your truck needs to be equipped with dependable truck lights. As winter approaches and the nights get longer, it is especially important to have a set of high-visibility truck lights. Winter is also when the toughest weather hits. The right truck lights will allow you to navigate the harshest weather conditions including rain, snow, sleet and fog.
When choosing truck lights, there are a number of important factors to consider. There are a wide range of truck light types, designs, and sizes to meet virtually any job or requirement.
Types of Truck Lights
The three basic types of truck lights that are available include halogen, HID, and LED. Halogen lights are a more inexpensive option, but tend not to last long due to filament breakage. HID and LED lights offer a longer-lasting alternative because they are not as vulnerable to damage from vehicle vibration. HID and LED also provide a bright, whiter output than halogen lights. While HID lights tend to be more expensive, LED technology advances have made LED lights a more affordable and cost-efficient option.
Truck Light Designs & Sizes
When it comes to truck light designs, there are many different options to meet specific needs and match desired style. Look for truck lights that offer the highest visibility and are engineered to withstand freezing temperatures and other extreme weather abuse. LED light bars are one of the most popular options, available in a variety of lengths, styles, and configurations. A wide variety of brackets options allow these lights to be mounted almost anywhere, from spanning the top of a vehicle windshield to a bumper or grille insert. LED bar lights add a rugged and sporty look to any vehicle and have the advantage of using less energy, generating less heat, lasting longer, and being more durable and waterproof. But most of all they generate much more light.
Snowplow Lighting Kits
If you are planning to invest in a snowplow for the coming winter, consider purchasing one with a lighting kit package, such as BOSS Snowplow’s SL3 LED headlights with Ice Shield Technology. This light system was developed specifically for use in snow and ice conditions with features like heated lens technology to prevent ice build-up, concentrated light pattern to improve visibility without distracting oncoming traffic, ultra efficiency, and extended service life.
