Headlights for trucks

Headlights for trucks are responsible for illuminating the road ahead of the vehicle and giving warning signals to other road users. These headlight units often consist of a combination of high and low beams, marker lights, turn signals, and daytime running lights. The lighting is located on both sides of the truck. Good lighting is essential for a safe ride. At the same time, damage to the headlights is quickly made in the event of a minor incident. At BAS Parts we have a huge selection of headlamps in stock to safely get your truck back on the road as quickly as possible. Both new and used.

Types of headlights for trucks

There are several types of headlights available for trucks. The first type is the tungsten lamp, which requires little electricity and is inexpensive. However, their light output is quite low and they have a short lifespan averaging about 1000 hours. The most commonly used variant is the halogen lamp, which is more powerful than tungsten lamps and lasts longer, up to about 1500 hours. Gas discharge lamps generate a powerful beam of light by heating xenon gas and have an average lifespan of 2000 to 3000 hours. LED lamps are compact, wear-resistant, and economical and ensure optimal lighting levels. Their lifespan is 3000 hours and more, but they are less powerful than HID xenon lamps and have a higher price.

Shape of truck headlights

Truck headlights can also be classified based on the shape of the reflector. A parabolic reflector has a higher light output the larger the reflector is. Lamps with a complex reflector consist of different sections that reflect the light in a certain way for even illumination. Elliptical lamps are used in projector lighting and produce a sufficiently intensive light output.

Cause of defective headlights

Defects in headlights can be caused by mechanical damage, damage from high temperatures, or improper installation. Too powerful lamps can melt and glass can crack in an accident. Light bulbs can burst due to a short circuit, moisture can cause contact oxidation, and worn cables can break. In most cases, replacing the damaged element is sufficient, except for sealed LED headlights.

How to recognize defects?

Defects in headlights can be detected by weakening or lack of light, an abnormal light beam, or flashing lights. During an inspection, cracks and chips can be found on the diffusers or traces of melting. During maintenance, electrical cables can be analyzed with specialized equipment to measure the resistance, voltage, and power in the circuit.


Headlights have become increasingly complicated with different types of lighting in recent years. Daytime running lights or cornering lights are being used more and more. In addition, trucks are nowadays equipped with halogen, LED or Xenon lighting. 

New after-market

In addition to the original headlights in used condition, BAS Parts also sells new alternative headlights. We have chosen the DEPO brand because of the good quality. DEPO is a major supplier of aftermarket lighting in the luxury car industry, where it is seen as an A-brand. Recently the Taiwanese manufacturer has started to also make lighting for trucks.
