OFF-ROAD REINVENTED: Since 2008, Morimoto has been building the best lighting upgrades for the automotive aftermarket… Consistently turning out products packed with more performance, reliability, and best in-class fitment & style. As a new player in the off-road game, we have embraced that philosophy big time, pumped up the Redbull intake, and now it’s time for the old competition to rethink their strategy. The brand new, patent-pending line of 4Banger HXB Off-Road LED lights were completely designed, engineered, and tested in the USA, and everything about them is truly next level.
FORM MEETS FUNCTION: The overall footprint of the 4Banger HXB is approximately 30% smaller than alternatives that offer comparable performance. This allows for an unbeatable OEM+ like fitment when paired with Morimoto’s fog light or A-Pillar mounting kits, which are available for today’s most popular trucks. Don’t be that guy with LED pods bulging out of your bumper.
PERFORMANCE: There are no “off the shelf” guts inside of a fancy housing here. Every element of the 4Banger HXB is proprietary. LucidShape was used to optimize performance around the most modern, lumen-dense LEDs from Osram. Thermal dynamics have been optimized using SolidWorks. The 4Banger HXB is available with three industry-leading beam patterns to suit every need. Wide/Fog, Spot, and Combo. Patent Pending Design.
ALL WEATHER: The white-output version is ideal for all-around visibility. For those who desire optimal output in rain, snow, or fog–the Yellow-output version will slay in shady weather. Morimoto has opted for LEDs that produce yellow light at the origin, which is the most effective way to penetrate through particles in the air without compromising output (Filtering white light through a yellow lens achieves the look, but no actual performance benefit in poor weather).
RELIABILITY: With power comes great responsibility. Extensive effort went into ensuring the reliability of the product. High power means high heat, which is why the 4Banger features a copper DTP (direct thermal path) PCB that maximizes heat-transfer to the radiator, which has been optimized through numerous rounds of thermal analysis. The cast aluminum shell is electroplated before powder coating to withstand flaking. The potted internals, over-molded input wiring, and main gasket are all designed according to IP69K standards for full weather resistance.
BOLT-ON: Each set of Morimoto 4Banger LED pods include a set of pedestal mounts for a universal fitment. Morimoto also offers a variety of application-specific mounting bracket kits for fog lights and A-Pillars that make them bolt-on for many of today’s most popular trucks. Check out the full lineup for details on what’s available for your application.
STREET LEGALITY: When aimed properly, the Spot and Combo beams comply with SAE J581 standards for an for auxiliary high beam. If you’re looking for a high-performance street-legal LED pod to use as a fog light, both the NCS and HXB Wide beam models are SAE J583 compliant for use as a street legal fog light. (See full test report here) . Some localities require auxiliary lights to be covered for everyday driving. To comply, the optional Blackout Covers are designed to fit all Morimoto 4Banger LED Pods, and are a friction + clip fit that installs with ease, and can be removed in seconds.
POWER UP: The Morimoto 4Banger LED Pods have been developed from the ground up to set a new standard in their segment, and the same goes for the optional wire harness. If you want the best, bingo. Not one component on the harness was overlooked for the sake of cost or simplicity. Triple sealed proprietary 4-pin relay with hanger. Proprietary over-molded inline fuse holder with 20A mini fuse. DT06-2S female outputs with dual seals. Stainless steel power and ground terminals. Proprietary M-Spec push button switch with Yellow-LED backlight.
