Proudly manufactured in the U.S.A., these custom headlights are available across North America to International® Truck dealers.

Truck-Lite and Navistar engineers partnered together to develop the sleek and highly efficient ProStar® custom LED forward lighting assembly. The strategically designed visibility system is the industry's first 100% LED lighting assembly. A LED headlight, a LED turn signal, and a LED daytime running light will be standard equipment on ProStar® Class 8 trucks in North America. Truck-Lite's innovative optics are designed to create a smooth beam pattern that meets all regulated safety standards and places the light on the road without glare to oncoming traffic. The new ProStar® custom LED forward lighting assembly boasts a long and efficient life cycle that is rated at over 30,000 hours.

Brad Van Riper, Truck-Lite's Chief Technology Officer stated, "With the new LED forward lighting assembly, Truck-Lite and International are delivering more white light on the road, adding significant peripheral road clarity and increased forward visibility which enhances the drivers feeling of safety."
