    I'd like to find some LED lamps that aren't so bright my truck looks like a fishing boat on Deadliest Catch.

    It can definitely be hard when you have a lot of irons in the fire!

    The end result for me is that after the very long conversation with Diode Dynamics, where we decided that the Ranger just isn't the best fitment for their current products, I went with another mid-tier brand that ended up installing pretty easily. They work reasonably well, with a reasonable beam pattern and a decent cutoff for the low beams.

    For the low beams, the original dust covers still don't fit, so instead of trying to mod them with a dremel tool, I have gone with these for now:

    I'll keep an eye open for newer models from Diode Dynamics, and possibly upgrade when they have something that is a good fitment.
