    I bought LED DRL's from that guy. Nice product but too bad the light they put out sucked.

    Here's a good comparisons. The stock halogens were way better for the DRL application.

    It might now but it didnt when I bought them. I dont even see where it says that. I'm not worried. It was a huge waste of $35 bucks anyways.

    Look down the page to Installation of LEDS:
    It says

    Never use leds in GM truck and SUV Daytime Running Lights (DRL's) postions. The other bulbs positions are fine, but not the DRL postion.


    Hope this helps

    Ha, I wonder why? I ran them for 2 years straight in my Avalanche and didn't have 1 problem.

    Maybe for excessive heat or something.

    Could be, if you are using his bulbs that he makes with the 1w LED on them. I had them in my Rear Fog light spot on my S60R, and they did get just hot enough you couldn't hold them for too long, just like a Halogen. But other than that, any other LED isn't gonna produce enough heat that you are going to have to worry about it.

    Well, I have 2 sets from 2 different sellers I'd give you if you wanted. I ran both for all of 10 minutes before I yanked them out.
