Led Lights

I've been pondering the idea of putting on a led auxiliary light on the 98 tw. Anyone on here used the LEDs or have an led headllight? Been thinking about one model 30 which is a 1500 lumen 10 watt or one of the 44's which is 2000 lumen at 24 watts I believe. I have a single led 200 lumen headlamp that I use for caving/hunting and it's amazing how much of a difference it makes at night. If I don't do the led auxiliary light or led headlight I'm might just try out the silverstar and see if the harness doesn't melt. I did do the switch mod so I can turn of the light if not needed.. Oh another question. If you run the switch in the middle with the stock bulb I'm guessing it's putting out 70watts? I have done this at nights few times on the tw and alot on the sv with no dead batty or melting. Input and ideas are welcome.

The fuse for the headlight is bigger than the use for several other systems implying it uses more power. I'd like to do 2 things. Build an LED headlight myself. (Who cares if its 100% legal or not) Also add a switch to disable it during the day. I want tail lights during the day, but the head light seems useless. Although I haven't been on one yet, maybe it does really help make you more visible.

If 4000watt hours - 40 miles then 100 watt hours = 1 mile. At 50 watts, in an hour you could gain an extra half mile. Doesn't seem like much, but its 1025% increase in range. When you drive 50,000 miles you didn't pay for over 500 miles. It all adds up.
