LED Driving Lights- A must have upgrade for any 4WD!

June 12, 2021   |   By Brendan Seymour LED Driving Lights- A must have upgrade for any 4WD! - image 210407-9-Lethal-Driving-Lights-HighCountry-Toms-79-Resized-260-of-295 on https://www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/news

If you’re debating whether or not to grab a set of spotlights for your 4wd, and you’re not sure if it’s worth the upgrade- READ THIS! I’m going to take you through why I reckon every single 4wd needs a set of LED Spotties and which ones would best suit your individual set up.

Factory Headlights/ High-beam

You’d think by now (being 2021), car manufacturers would have it spot on when it comes to light output on a factory set of high-beams, which would negate the need for a set of 4×4 Spotlights. In my experience, driving long distances at night in modern vehicles without added light from a set of spotties is an extremely taxing task.
When you’re out driving at night without a set of 4wd LED Spotlights and relying only on your  factory lights, whether it is in thick scrub, windy roads or even far out west where the roads are seemingly endless and straight, your eyes are constantly straining to make sense of what’s in front of you. This in turn makes your eyes tires, which makes you tired, which dramatically increases the effects of fatigue. No doubt anyone who has done this for an extended period of time would agree- after a long drive with average light output on a 4wd, you feel absolutely buggered and no doubt you’d be online straight away to buy a set of Driving Lights!

According to Transport for NSW- Fatigue related crashes are almost three times more likely to be fatal than crashes not involving fatigue.  
This is just one of many reasons I am a strong believer in the fact that installing a set of 4wd driving lights to your 4wd is a safety feature that everyone should consider. Brighter 4wd Driving Lights = less strain on your eyes = less fatigue = safer travelling!

Toughest Driving lights ever??

When it comes to adding a set of Driving Lights to your 4wd, it’s near impossible to go past a set of the incredibly tough and unbeatable value 4×4 driving lights offered by Adventure Kings. We are committed to providing high-quality and cost effective driving lights for people who might be on a tight budget but still need a set of affordable spotlights for their 4wd.
Take our brand new tried and tested Lethal LED Driving Lights range for example. I have personally put these spotties through the ringer and I’m willing to say these are by far the toughest LED Driving Lights Adventure Kings has EVER offered. I was behind the camera when Brenno dunked them in a freezing cold river for an hour, then took them out and tossed them off a 100ft cliff. It didn’t end there! He then tied them to the back of the 4wd and took off on the tracks and thrashed them about for kilometre after kilometre. No matter how hard he tried to break them, they honestly kept on working. This is all thanks to a few key components in the design of the Lethal Driving Lights.  The IP69K waterproof rating, the ultra-tough die cast alloy housing, the polycarbonate lenses- which by the way is the same stuff used in riot shields AND fighter jet canopies!

Of course in the real world your LED Spotties are never going to be faced with such barbarism, but we really wanted to push these things to their limit and we still haven’t found it yet!

What to look for in a set of driving lights

When purchasing a set of LED Driving Lights for your rig, pay very close attention to 3 things which every set of spotties need.

The LUX & Lumens on your driving lights should play a massive role in your decision to purchase a set of driving lights. Our 9” Lethal LED Driving Lights have a lab proven 21,840 real world lumens and 1 LUX at a whopping 1,342m. In my opinion, this is the perfect combination of LUX and Lumens. To put it simply, LUX is how far the light will go and Lumens is the amount of visible light in front of you.

Colour temperature is also a big deciding factor in a set of LED Driving Lights. Our range of Adventure Kings Lethal Driving Lights has a colour temp rating of 5185 kelvin. Again, this is near perfect when it comes to relieving stress on your eyes. Ever been behind the wheel of a 4wd at night when you flick the spotties on, only to be blinded by the reflections bouncing off street signs? I’d be willing to bet that those driving lights had a Colour temp of around 7,000k to 9,000k. The closer to 10,000k you get, the more blue the light will be and the closer to 1,000k- the more yellow the light will be. To give you an idea, sunlight is around the 5000k mark and this is exactly what you want the colour temp to be on your spotlights to minimise eye fatigue. Again- this is why the Adventure Kings Lethal Driving Lights are the perfect combination of every aspect required to make a practical LED Driving Light.

The build quality in a driving light is super important when it comes to longevity of a driving light. Look for a set of driving lights that have a tough cast alloy housing and make sure the lens is made from a ridiculously strong material. Our Lethal Driving Lights have both of these things which again is why we haven’t been able to break a set yet- despite the amount of torture we have subjected them to. The other key feature is tough as nails brackets to secure your driving lights to your 4wd.
The Lethal LED Spotlights from Adventure Kings have new 3mm folded steel brackets and twin m8 mounting bolt system on both sides of the housing which keeps them adjusted perfectly and keeps them rock solid on your bulbar.

Using this guide, you’ll be able to pick the perfect set of driving lights to suit your individual needs.
