Anyone switched to LED Headlights?

I'm contemplating a switch to LED headlights on my 2006 Sportsmobile Sprinter.. I've never loved the illumination capacity of the Sprinter low beams, even the upgraded halogen ones. And, as you all know, the bulbs tend to get bounced around and burned out fairly quickly. LED seems like a better idea, but I'm wondering if there are any downsides I haven't anticipated -- the way the replacement kits fit, for example. Anyone made the switch?

3+ years ago I switched to Truck-lite 5x7 LED and couldn't be happier. But this is on my E350

Forum search is your friend. LEDs in general blast, but don't throw forward. Problem is getting the focal position to work with existing lenses....it generally doesn't....But there are lots of posts....

My Express has the sealed beam units and I did switch them out for LED. Significant improvement, but the bar had been set pretty low by the factory units.
