would these bulbs fit i have a 2008 ridge line and i definitely know they will fit on the passenger side headlight but the driver side seems a little tight since the air filter box is right behind the bulb.

I've got $5 that says those bulbs out of Hong Kong are counterfeit CREE LEDs.

As I understand it, the issue is not whether the bulbs will fit into the housing, but that the housing is not designed for LEDs. LED headlights consist of multiple LEDs. The regular bulb is a single filament. The reflectors and the housing is designed for a single filament, not multiple sources of light. Hopefully the next generation Ridgeline will have LEDs available as an option, but the current Ridgeline is simply not designed for LEDs, even if they happen to fit into the back of the housing.

Oh deffinately, I know there fake, me and my friend were just curious to see how different fake led bulbs are to real one and in this one were comparing the REAL GTR lighting led headlight bulbs to fake look alikes, hence the bulbs from Hong Kong.

I have these and love them.

Light distribution is cleaner than aftermarket hids. Even without retrofitted projectors, I still have a "cutoff" as if they were. Albeit not as defined...very similar to halogens. Also No ballast required. I've had them for about a month and have not been flashed once.

Do you have a picture of the brightness of the lights in the dark installed on the truck?

Lightning never captures well on a conventional cell phone camera.

Halogen (w/ yellow halogen foglights):


Vs.

Led (w/ yellow halogen fog lights):


Keep in mind these are standard ridgeline sport headlights. No projectors.
