    Update on the LED headlights... I purchased two of these (https://www.superbrightleds.com/vehi...1943&year=2006) and just tried to install them. The heat sink sticks out of the back of the headlight housing to the point where the rubber cap on the back won't close. Any thoughts on this?

    The instructions state that the LEDs need to be well-ventilated bc they heat up so is not having the rubber cap on it ok or even a good thing? Or will the heat sink and back of the unit being exposed to the elements potentially cause damage to it?

    Has anyone installed these specific LEDs or had success with different ones?

    Here are some pics to help show what I'm talking about:

    I do not know, I would ask the seller.

    oh ya? we'll chalk this up to a miscue by a FNG. TEABAG is a self-absorbed, argumentative buffoon. sadly he's been trolling this board for years and has now zeroed in on you.
