Portland, OR, June 9, 2014 – PIAA has introduced two new kits for mounting LP530 LED lights in 2014 and 2015 Toyota Tundra pickup trucks. These kits allow for the installation of PIAA’s LP530 LED lights, and feature the Reflector Facing Technology (RFT) that PIAA pioneered. The LP530 lights come in either 20° driving pattern, or 70° SAE-compliant fog pattern.
Each kit includes all the parts needed to install a pair of PIAA’s LP530 LED driving lamps (kit is part number 5362) or LP530 LED SAE fog lamps (part number 5360). Each kit includes a pair of PIAA LP530 driving or fog lamps, 2 mounting brackets, wiring harness, and mounting hardware, along with simple installation instructions. MSRP for each kit is just $379.00.
These kits from PIAA (pronounced pe’-uh) have been specifically engineered to replace the dim OEM lamps in the bumpers of the new Toyota Tundra. These new LED kits provide roughly three times the light output of the stock lights, and feature easy installation which gives the front of the vehicle a premium LED look. They are also easily installed in trucks that were produced with no OE lamps in the bumper, requiring only the addition of factory bezels readily available from any Toyota dealer. Plus, these kits offer truck owners the choice of driving or fog lamps depending on the nature of their night time driving.
PIAA’s LP Series LED lights all feature PIAA’s exclusive Reflector Facing Technology (RFT), in which the LED bulbs are oriented back toward a computer-designed multi-surface parabolic reflector that concentrates and focuses the beam pattern more precisely than other LED designs on the market. This provides greater light output while maintaining the low power consumption characteristics of LED lights. The result: more concentrated light exactly where you need it. PIAA invented RFT technology, and was the first company to offer fog and driving lamps using this design.
The LP530 LED lamps in these kits each use two 7-watt LED bulbs that provide extraordinary illumination without the very high current draw associated with halogen lamps. PIAA’s LEDs have a nearly unlimited lifespan, and are covered by PIAA’s two year warranty.
PIAA’s LP530 lamps, with a nominal diameter of 3.5 inches, along with PIAA’s LP550 (5 inch diameter), LP560 (6 inch diameter), and LP570 (7 inch diameter) all share common construction features that include a cast aluminum housing, high strength polycarbonate lens, and protective grill. All of these lamps provide a 30-degree driving beam with a sharp white beam of light with a color temperature of 6000 kelvin.
Justin MacLauchlan, Brand Manager for PIAA, notes that these new vehicle-specific kits are an important addition to PIAA’s growing LED product line. “We continuously monitor vehicle sales figures in North America and adjust our product mix to match the growth patterns of popular vehicles. The new-generation Toyota Tundra trucks have already been shown to be a major sales success, and it’s important to us to offer the lighting products that will enhance the visibility of drivers of these vehicles.”
Continues PIAA’s MacLauchlan, “These two new Tundra kits are an important addition to our vehicle-specific kits for cars, trucks, motorcycles, and powersports vehicles, as well as the universal-fit brackets and lamp bars we offer for these same types of vehicles. And it makes our RFT LED technology available to drivers who prefer this enhanced illumination over that which is offered by the OEs. The fact that LP530 fog lights are SAE and DOT-compliant will make them a popular choice throughout the United States and Canada.”
In addition to PIAA’s new Toyota Tundra vehicle-specific kits, PIAA also offers high performance halogen headlight bulbs to match the brilliant white output of the LEDs. Pair those with PIAA’s new Aero Vogue premium silicone wiper blades, and you have the perfect combination for maximum vision in any kind of weather or driving situation.
