So those you out there with different headlights Led /halogen 2021 F150 . How bright are they not looking for lumen or candle power .How bright is it do I need to look for aftermarket lights . Ford has never had bright lights. I'm in a pretty rural area full of suicidal dear and need to see as far as I can. Off road lights will come in the future after I figure a configuration I like. For now all thought and pictures are welcome

Best headlights on a vehicle ever. Lariat with the LED projectors do a great job of lighting up the road. I do not think you would be unhappy with them.
I did have crappy halogens in my '19 and had to go aftermarket to get road sign melting LED's. I will not need to make any changes with the '21.

completely agree, I have a lariat 502a (Canadian spec with glare free), and they’re the best oem headlights I’ve had on a vehicle.

So the Lariat comes with led lights or is the 502a package needed . I know 502a has the cornering beam which is cool but not a big deal for me just looking for the brightness. There was thread about reflector vs Led light but left it unanswered

How are the lights on the lower trim Lariats?
I have the 501A Lariat and it has the LED reflectors. Great headlights. Far superior to the halogens that are in the 2020 XLT I had.

502A has the LED projectors, others have LED reflector headlamps.

So. I guess I will need to get the projector led after it comes in
Definitely buy/order a truck with them from the factory. I would guess adding them in would be a nightmare.

The halogen headlights are garbage and there's no discernible difference between them and my old '06 Silverado's miserable headlights. Unfortunately, the halogen are the only option on the regular cab trucks. It's pretty shameful that my $50,000MSRP truck didn't get LED's as standard when the $20,000 Maverick does!

I was hoping that with the redesign, the base halogen headlights would be okay but they aren't, most cars in my city have LEDs and if there's a car behind me with them, I can't even tell whether my lights are on or not. Typical Detroit behavior of using trim levels upgrades that are tied to safety features, since things like passenger side mirrors, windshield wipers and seatbelts were all features unavailable on base model vehicles. If kids weren't getting backed over by their grandparents, reverse cameras would still be unavailable on XL trims. Yet somehow, the worthless and troublesome capless fuel fillers are standard across the line!

If you get stuck with halogens, I recommend upgrading to Morimoto projector lamps when they become available for the 2021s. They‘re not cheap, but they are probably the best upgrade I made to my 2015 F150.

I replaced my 2013 platinum HID projectors with the morimoto projectors. Night and day difference. Buy once cry once they say.

These are cost saving measures that I are shit at the trim level should get a garage door Opener and led lights not Led reflectors leading you to believe that thats what your getting . As for the capless fuel fillers I just want to be able to lock it . Not afraid of fuel theft but of some shit head pouring something in

Any pictures any issues ?

I plan on keeping the truck for 8 years at least so no issues with water or any malfunction ?

Should I just put a Led lightbulb in place not trying to be cheap just a question ?
