    Drive Bright Edge LED Tail lights (07-10)

    We both mostly did. She was fine, I got my shin all beat to hell hitting it off the passenger dash on the way forward. No air bags, though, which is good.
  3. Well, my wife totaled her '08 Edge a couple weeks ago and we didn't replace it with another Edge of this generation, so I have two Drive Bright LED tail lights for sale. They have been absolutely wonderful for us and I just wanted to see someone else get some use out of them. I'm also sending the backup LED bulbs I bought with them. $150 shipped for the set. Same as the below: http://drivebright.com/home/shop/ford-edge-led-tail-light-set-lh-rh-complete-replacement-tail-light-assembly/
  4. I hate to be that guy, but a lot of this is incorrect. First off, HIDs are not a new lighting technology, arc discharge lights have been around for a really long time. They've been used in cars since the early early '90s, and LED tech has been used in cars since the early aughts. The reason HIDs are not used as DRLs is only in small part because of low voltage application, the reality is that arc discharge lighting doesn't have a long life to begin with, less so than halogen and much less so than LED, so it doesn't make sense to burn them all the time. Any and all retrofits you stick in place, even high quality customs are technically illegal. A lot of Ford models are coming out with LED equipment as an option, very few offer them in the base models. There are LEDs being made that have the same base and relative characteristics as HIDs. I saw it mentioned earlier, and again, that there are none, that's simply not true. Unlike arc discharge lighting, however, they do not have the ability to burn in 360*, therefore they've not really been used in projectors. They are being made, however. You can either add load resistors, which are terrible because they draw current and dissipate it as heat, a horrible design, or you can add canbus adapters to lie to your PCM. In my F150, nicely enough, I didn't need to add load resistors to anything, just replace the turn signal relay from a resistance design to a timed design.
  5. Ya know, I forgot all about this. I bought an F-150 instead and am modding the heck out of it. :-) My wife is keeping the Edge, she's gotten used to it. Thanks guys!
  6. You'll get the tail lights. The good luck is the small modicum of skill required to replace them properly. It's more a thumbs up type situation than a worry.
  7. One thing that I did was unhook the socket from the dangling wire and wrap it against the elements.
  8. Maybe, the rewire you did was that to the headlights themselves or the harness that your bulbs are being fed from? Hit me in PM with a price point.
  9. Huh, they're not bad looking. All the shots of them by themselves don't actually do them justice. And you say you've had no problems with them in seven months of ownership? Do you do a lot of night driving? What about high beams, how often do you use them?
  10. You have a picture of how they actually look on a real (not showroom) car?
  11. That, right there, that's helpful. Very, very helpful, especially after seeing your application of the kit, extremely helpful. Are you going to do a write-up of your particular install? If not, I'm sure I can go about finding all sorts of information on retrofits, I was just wondering. The square lens and shrouds look really nice with the squareness of our headlights. If I do the retrofit myself it's about $400ish, that's not terrible.
  12. That's a damn good looking job. Which projectors are you using for your retrofit?

    2008 Edge, heating strangeness

    lol, checking the hoses now wouldn't be worth the struggle considering the weather, even in the garage since it's only about 20* warmer than outside. I ran it tonight and sitting still it stayed warm, so I think it was just the low coolant. So now to watch and see if there was actually a problem or it was just a low coolant situation the entire time.
