A recent addition to the lineup of modifications available for the Nissan Frontier is the PlasmaGlow Igniters LED Headlight Bulb Conversion. You can never have too much visibility driving at night, but supplemental LED lighting can get expensive. Besides, they require brackets, wiring, and did we mention expensive?
The PlasmaGlow conversion puts out over 2400 lumens of 5000K lighting, using CREE LEDs, that are made in America… and they’re super-easy to install!
I ordered this kit from AutoAnything, one of our long-time forum sponsors here on NICOclub, and delivery took just a couple days.
My first impression of the product was great. Everything is nicely packed and secured. The LED units look great. They even have a fan and cooling fins built-in to extend the life of them. In fact, at a 30,000 hour lifespan, these should easily outlast the truck!
Here is everything laid out before the installation (click for larger images):
Here’s the best part – The install process is a piece of cake! It’s as simple as replacing your headlight bulbs. The main thing I want to focus on is how the light beam itself looks. In my honest opinon, this is a high-quality lighting upgrade, so as you will see I have several pictures of the light quality compared side-by-side with the OEM bulb with different types of lens exposures.
