The million dollar question - WHY?
Mostly because I hate the nasty look of the lens and of the light. I really like the crisp LED look of the lens and the crisp light that the LED's throw. It's not safety or power consumption. I just really like the LED light and how bright they usually are; if you buy the right ones.
I have not removed the lens yet, as it's been too cold to mess with it. I'm not so sure I'll be able to use drop in truck stop replacements, but maybe. I hope it's that easy!
Keep the ideas coming and hopefully it'll warm up a little and I can get out and tinker with it.
