A quick plug for Rigid Industries LED lighting products.
They are outstanding! There is a premium price, but you will realize why the moment they arrive. These things feel like you could drop them off a building and they would still light up.
And that is helpful — because LEDs that are cheap often take just as long to mount and fit and wire and test— then the cheap things fail 4 weeks later. What a waste of time and money!
I have these LED Dually lights as my Subaru Legacy GT’s high-beams and they are so bright it really is indescribe-able. Much brighter than any bi-xenon I’ve used to far.
My one recommendation is this: get the “Spot” beam pattern. I selected the “Flood” pattern and lose too much light up and to the sides. Spot is perfect for automotive applications.
Second recommendation, actually? It is cool to have them under glass in your OEM lamp units, but it is a huge pain in the butt to do. If doing it again, I would just put these behind my grille instead of inside the headlight.
The Dually pair at $199 are definitely worth the price. This militia-member’s Ford Expedition in Atlanta definitely has the right idea!
But be warned, adding Rigid Industries LEDs can be somewhat addictive….
Here they are on my Subie as replacements for my OEM highbeams.

Big Power in a Small Package – The Rigid Industries D-Series LED Light is one of the most versatile lighting products on the market today. It produces extremely high output while consuming very little power. Its compact size and shape allow the D-Series LED Light to fit almost anywhere and be used for virtually any lighting application. The D-Series Duallys have gained steam in use as fog lights, scene lighting applications, as well as marine spreader lights. The Duallys with Amber LEDs have proven that when used as fog lights they help to cut through the fog, dust, dirt, or even water.
Hybrid Optics – Our patented Hybrid optics system is the most powerful, most efficient LED optics system on the market. Utilizing a combination of lens and reflector, the Hybrid optics system captures the maximum amount of light emitted from the LED and projects it exactly where you want it.
10º Spot Pattern – The Spot version of our Hybrid optics system projects light over great distances in a concentrated beam. It’s the most powerful spot-style LED light in the industry. This light is perfect for high speeds or any situation where you need extreme distance. The Spot offers a wider beam with less waste than the competition. While maintaing higher center intensity than any other system available.
Quality Construction – Our circuitry is designed in-house to be more powerful, be more efficient, and generate less heat. Our durable aluminum housings feature custom, over-sized heat sinks which keep the temperature down and allow our LED’s to run cooler and brighter.
