There are actually DOT street legal LED's out there. I get the whole LED upgrade. I did it. But before I bought a single LED bulb, I made sure I had a little insight to the "finer details" of what all was involved with an upgrade like this. I know high end halogen DOT approved bulbs run roughly 2300 lumen output. And cost like 70 bucks for a set. Yet anyone can grab a set of 2000 - 2500 lumen output low beam LED's for like 20-30 bucks. Makes sense, crisper white light at a fraction of the cost. And with an extended life cycle to boot. Believe me, I get it. Other option, headlight assemblies. There are a good number of them that are LED and DOT approved. The price tag tells that tale too. Bottom line, to do it legally, it's not cheap. To do it smart, is not expensive. To do it right, just takes a little understanding, which is still absolutely free.
