Led pod in high beam spot

Yep I know you can get the pricey as hell stuff from rigid and all that bs but my question is can a led pod be put in the high beam spot In oem headlights? They have breathing fins on the back so would it be about the same heat as the 8k hids put out in the low beam or less ? To much heat? ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1404825576.931667.jpg I have them in my bumper for fogs and love them!!! Doing another whlm with tinted drl/side markers and trying to decide if this is possible thanks.

Possible, but the fins are there to cool with air flow, inside the headlight housing they won't get this flow, so won't cool as designed, and I imagine will overheat ....

I use the Rigids in my fogs and man are they awesome. I would love to see this get done and work. I would jump on this for sure.

I was throwing around the idea of doing an LED cube in the highs, but if you look at the light out put. the LEDS put out less lumens then the HIDs in you lows. so what would be the point of having a high beam that isn't as bright as your low beams?

it would look sick tho.

The high beams hids are prolly the worst decision I ever made headlight wise. They literally don't make a difference at least they don't for me. Which is why I figured why not throw an led cube in there lol idk I'm gonna look into it. May get a set and throw some in and see if they burn out or last. Would be great if they did

Just a thought, but if you want to see better with the high beams, how about removing the tinted covers from the head lights?
Like mentioned, they will have trouble keeping cool and the output will be less than the HIDs.

what you could do is retro a projector in the lows and wire it to do low and high beams, then put a cube where the high beams would normally go. but wire the cubes to a switch so you can have them on along with the lows or highs.
then do the anytime fog light mod and you can have all your lights on to light up the night.
