LED Headlight Bulbs
H13: Morimoto 2Stroke 2.0B-LHB-2SH13
[ In Stock: pieces ]
Dime a Dozen: Everybody wants H13 LED headlight bulbs today, but for all the wrong reasons. The diverse marketing tactics and the numbers war that's pushed onto ill-advised consumers is only getting more and more amusing to guys like us who actually know better. 100W? 10,000 lumens? Top-secret LED chip formula with seemingly exotic blend of rare materials or fancy coatings? Cool story, bro, but how do they actually work on the road at night? Isn't that what headlights are for? Check out our Comparison Video on YouTube.
2Stroke 2.0: Despite the fact that we haven't really had anything to offer in this niche, well, at least without risking our reputation selling our customers something that we truly didn't believe in: We respect the fact that Morimoto stood on the sidelines for so long, simply learning from everybody else's mistakes. In testing the brand-new 2Stroke 2.0 system side by side with a multitude of other designs, we finally became excited about LED headlight bulbs for the first time. Against the odds and certainly our expectations; seeing is believing and we agree they actually work pretty darn well! Here's why.
Safety: You won't be putting yourself at risk while driving at night with the 2Stroke Bulbs. Prior to this, we could only ever comfortably recommend LED bulbs for use as auxiliary lighting, high beams, fog lights, etc. Here, we test a lot of automotive lighting products. (really, a lot) Until now, there were literally no options that would translate their luminosity out onto the road into a useful-enough beam pattern (and measured lux at a distance) to really call adequate for on-road use. The optics for the H13 2Stroke bulbs are unique compared to other sizes in the range in order to produce the best possible results in H13 headlights.
Modern: Relative to the original 2Stroke that used massive & powerful CREE XHP50 LED chips, the updated 2.0 version now employs the latest and greatest Z ES chips from Philips Lumileds. Their small footprint allows for maximum lumen density and precision perfection when it comes to the bulbs ability to re-create the output of the original halogen bulbs they replace. Many other LED headlight bulbs are now using small LED chips lined up in a row, but nothing compares to the Philips Z ES.
Pretty Cool: Heat management is crucial for lumen maintenance and reliability. The 2Stroke bulb's internally opposed 1.5mm copper boards extract as much heat as possible from the area surrounding the LED chips and transfers it to the radiator at the back of the bulb. The one-piece radiator housing is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, and conceals a magnetic levitating fan inside. This is the most compact way to house an effective yet compact cooling system.
Size Matters: Due to the extra depth of most LED bulbs, they won't fit inside headlights with solid plastic rear housing caps. The 2Stroke 2.0 is undoubtedly one of the most compact (yet still actively cooled) LED Bulbs on the market. Morimoto paid much attention to this throughout development, and it's not such an easy task given the need to balance size, power input to the LED chips, and thermal management to keep them running within safe range.
Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars, trucks, and bikes. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact Us

I purchased these on the recommendation of TRS staff. I'm very pleased with the quality of light these put out. The bulbs produce a very white light, not blue or yellowish. It looks very factory. Once installed, I had to adjust the bulbs so I could get the right pattern and then adjust the angle of the headlight housing so I wasn't blinding oncoming traffic. I've used other LEDs in the past, they were extremely bright, but I couldn't adjust the beam pattern and was constantly getting drivers flashing the hi-beams at me because I was blinding them.
<br>The staff at TRS is helpful, but took some time to reach.

I installed this kit in a 2014 Chevy Cruze. The output is definitely better than the Sylvania silver star bulbs I had been using.
<br>Very simple install, the only problem I had was one H13 adapter was clocked 180 degrees out on one of the lights. Once I figured out how to re-clock the adapter everything was good.
<br>I will likely be purchasing additional kits for my other vehicles.

If you're looking to make the switch to LED over your halogen bulbs or your cheap hid kit look no further. Installed these bad boys in my truck as well as a few buddies of mine and they light up the road like no other. Easy to install - if you have a dodge ram you'll need to also purchase the anti-flicker ballasts for 20$ cause the Canbus system is lame like that. Back to the lights, the cut-off line with halogen headlight buckets is also better than cheap LED bulbs you can get off amazon and other Chinese websites. So basic moral of the story is add these puppies to your cart and purchase them. You won't be dissapointed!

These headlight bulbs have surpassed my expectations . Very easy install. Plug and play was it. Only thing I had to do to install on my 06 ram was to break to little tabs for the red lock clip and plug in.
