Hey everyone, I purchased a 21 Lariat which came with the 501a package which included the reflector LED headlights. I was wondering if there was anyone to interchange the projector LED headlights?
Does it show how much they are?I have the Halogen lights and was hoping someone would figure out the swap to the projector LED’s myself. I am pretty dissatisfied that I couldn’t order the lights I wanted with the regular cab.
I looked on eBay and there were some OEM LED projector take-offs already for sale. They all had broken tabs, so who knows where they came from, possibly rejected or damaged during install at the factory.
I have also bee checking parts.ford and it looks like they are available new now.
https://parts.ford.com/shop/en/us/electrical/switches/headlamp-levelling-control-act-13292675-1steering position should be on every trim and I know that I can access tilt/inclination on my XLTs information screen. How the headlights get the information is another matter, it for sure isn’t as simple as bolting them on. Perhaps, even an extra module will be needed to compensate for missing wiring on lower trims.
The dynamic bending and leveling features will be too much to ignore for some enthusiastic hacker to mess with on their own. Hopefully they will share their experience.
As for the halogen to reflector LED, that will likely be much more simple and accessible option, there’s already a multitude of tutorials, parts lists and other support for the previous generation.
Makes sense how much these units cost. I have disassembled one of the 2021 F-150 ADB lamps for benchmarking purposes where I work. They are very complex on the inside with lots of moving parts and active cooling.I found them. Holy cow they are expensive. Screenshot below. What’s also interesting. The projector LEDs are only $70-$80 more than the reflector LEDs. I wish I could pay $160 more for these headlamps at order!
