Now that you said something about it possibly smoking, that's what I bet it is.Nick, my guess is the base of the bulb. look at this picture of my factory one. Looks like it heated up to the point of smoking at one time.
Are they LEDs or filament bulbs? I'm assuming if you spent $2 on them, they are of the filament type. When you say ''scar'' do you mean fog the clear lens?Same reason people run amber fogs or aftermarket driving lights I guess...
I think amber looks so much better. It sets it apart and makes the truck kinda unique, all for spending 2 bucks for a set of bulbs.
I found a set of plastic bulbs, amber lense, that didnt scar nearly as bad when used all the time. They're el cheapo's but seem to last forever.
Agreed. ''True'' daytime running lights would be of better quality. This crap installed on our trucks I believe is a federally mandated thing, so naturally, they installed the ''bare minimum allowed by law''. These are practically the same bulbs used for back-up lighting. True driving lights would be more powerful at projecting light.Daytime driving lights on these trucks are not worth much. On the long stretches of hwy you'll see the oncomming vehicle before you see the lights. Best thing is just to turn the headlights on when you're on the road.
