    quite a few options according to this Products page:

    https://www.jwspeaker.com/products/c...es/headlights/

    I would also search for OEM replacement bulbs (HID or LED) or an LED conversion kit. I can't imagine that the F450 lights would be any different than another F-series truck of that same year, but I am not a Ford guy, so I am not sure.

    Call them and ask what they have, they are a great company to work with.

    Thanks!

    They are the same headlights as every other Ford of the generation. I've seen the led replacement bulbs, but haven't been super impressed. They won't melt snow off!

    I do love my HID projector retrofit in my 4runner....

    Don't waste your time or cash on LED bulb replacements. Don't gain enough.

    Lumen makes a nice projector replacement headlight. Considering for my 2005.

All that to say bumper lights are better IMO.
    The lower the lights the better for getting contrast on bumpy surfaces. If the lights are too high they fill in the lighting in the holes making it harder to see the bumps.

    Now for me to be a hypocrite I am leaving the big light bar on my Ambo just because it does work well for area lighting and Iím a lazy bugger.

    Damn they are proud of those! I would DIY a retrofit if I go that route. I did my 4runner, it's pretty straight forward.

    Agreed, I would definitely do it myself. Pretty much any HID retrofit is quite pricey if you're paying someone else.
