I replaced my low beams with LED's a few months ago for the reason you stated. I notice recently when driving after dark that they need to be aimed though, but do light up the road nicely. Not sure why they are so far out of adjustment, but it is on my punch list from the last trip and will get to it before next trip.
Not sure the ones I have fit since you have a later model. Easy to cross ref. anyway.
Had to replace the low beams on my Ford Edge with LED's also as they were not suitable to drive safely. Ford dealer said they were ok. Guess he had never driven at night with a late model Ford.

I have these in my axis and am happy enough with them.


I have these in my f150 and I think I like the pattern better.

Check your bulb type before ordering either unit.
My axis is 9007 bulbs, yours might not be.

If the light assembly is like our Windsport aiming might be hard.
Ours have 3 are pieces of angle aluminum with one bolt through each, I think you could adjust left to right and a bit of up and down ( top is bolted to the lamp assembly )I just took some pictures
Looking from the back the blue tape marks where the bolts. The plastic housing is slotted so you can move it about 3/4" at each location .
The 1st pic shows the lower mount, 2nd the back side of the assy.
Hope it helps

It's just the bulb you change to correct brightness. The housing/lens need not be removed or realigned.

Throw another vote on the LED pile from me!
On top of potentially throwing a much "whiter" light: they also use a whole lot less power...

The low beam headlights are not the best for sure. I purchased the high beam, low beam and the fog lights from the "Headlight Experts". I have a heard time seeing at night when I drive so I wanted to make sure I could see.

LED replacement for 2017 Thor Outlaw 38RE

Iím afraid to drive long distance after dark with my stock headlights. At 60 mph Iím outdriving my view.

I see a bunch of posts for ACE replacements. Has anyone done this on an Outlaw? Does the Outlaw use the same bulbs?

The BULBS ARE ALL YOU CHANGE.
Take out a bulb, read the designation, h5, 9007,something like that.
Then order the BULBS with the same number.
They're a quarter twist to take out and a quarter twist to install.

I think there's a picture or two in my thread, If not it's in one of timmy's.

You tube is you best bet for instruction on bulb replacement.
