Docking Lights
 
Has anyone attempted to replace their docking lights?
I have a 2007 Supra ssv24 and I do not have room on my tower for forward faceing lights, wondering if anyone makes a hid or brighter lights for them.. They are very dim...

Another thing, anyone know if anyone makes single tower lights, maybe I can squeeze 1 between and 1 on each side of a pair of pro 485s facing the rear... I do not have the z-cargo rack so i can't put them on top of the tower...

Most of the new docking light are LED.
Here is an example of one on the market, I am sure that there are plenty more.

I have an 07 22SSV. Here is a pic of my old light setup ( amber lenses to cut down on bugs). I've since switched to all true HID lights.

You can failry easily replace the bulb in the factory lights ( under hte bow) with an HID bulb....it should fit. May take some trial/error. The HID bubls are tradtiionally a tad longer.You'll haev to mount the external ballast ( not a big deal) but you'll get much more light.

I live on a lake, my tower lights are priceless to me.

I used a bar from boss acessories, monster tower clamps, and titan lights ( pilot brand).

My 08 Supra owners manual says the docking bulb is an MR-16 50W 24 degree

Would the MR16 LED replacement bulbs from one of hte LED providers (like superbright.com)

GX5.3 base MR16 bulb with high powered LEDs
12 Volt AC/DC, 330~100 lumen, 24 or 60 degree beam pattern
Available with Cool White Natural White Warm White LEDs
MR16-W6W-C24 White 6 Watt LED bulb

GX5.3 base MR16 bulb with one 6 Watt CREE LED, 12 Volt AC/DC
CREE MC-E LED 330/250 lumen, 24 degree beam pattern

THIS IS OUR BRIGHTEST MR16 BULB

Todd which docking lights do you have ?http://images.westmarine.com/large/2613461.jpg

My lights are these, and I can tell by looking in there, it is for sure an HID-style bulb in there.

these are the lights you need. Make sure you get the lights and the ballast. they are a direct replacement.

OUCH ... $$$ -- has anyone tried the LED lights? Are they any brighter than the stock bulbs I have?

I don't use these enough personally right now to justify this cost, but thanks for the pointer. I have other things higher in the
"bling/upgrade" list to spend money on first.

acurtis_ttu 04-01-2010 1:18 PM

Any HID or LED lights worth upgrading too are gonna cost $$$$. $200/pr is cheap for HID's. Bright LED's are ridiculously expensive. check out xvission xmitter lights ( bright LED's.)

the ones from superbright you have listed will not work. You woudl prolly get more light from a bic lighter.
