Nop, considering I have four 1800 (4 x 1800 = 7200) lumen led lamps on mine I don't think it's overkill lol. Well, my setup certainly is. But the price on the ones you linked is a bit cheaper than what I paid for my sets individually. Just keep in mind that higher output led lamps like those are designed for air cooling so to help with longevity I'd run them on a switch or off a relay activated by the high beams to shut them off in slow traffic.

But they will get some extra light down the road as the output is comparable to a halogen lamp per light. It would be similar to having a pair of 55w halogen driving lights.

You might want to look at these also. http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hstria ... Detail.bok

They are 1500 lumens each (more!) and cost less. If you use the code "inmate" at checkout, you get 10% off.

I've been using them for over a year and I like them. The beam pattern is probably 90% spot light, with perhaps 10% flood light. In other words, almost all the light is tightly focused. There's a little halo effect you see in a dark area as it hits objects to the side, but not much. With that tight a beam, you can use them more in traffic than you can a flood light that will blind everyone around you.

I just bought 3 EACH remote control type dimmers for lights from a Ebay vendor for $27.90 with shipping. Not the exact same as these but VERY close http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hstria ... Detail.bok

With a wire from the high beam it will bypass the dimmer and give you full power then automatically dim on low beam. These are PWM dimmers that will dim 99% of the aftermarket LED and the older OEM Incandescent bulbs. Two of Daboo's lights and one $6 dimmer box would make daylight at night for less than $120 USD.

PWM = Pulse - Width Modulation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation
