Guide: KD Swing Arm Assembly

Updated: Dec 5, 2018

Swing arm light assemblies have become very popular as of late. Many truckers choose a set of swing arms to give their truck an older-style look. Today, we are going to take a look at a set of swing arms from KD Lamp.

Believe it or not, KD Lamp is one of the first aftermarket manufacturers of the swing arm.

The idea came about after KD stopped manufacturing headlights for Harley Davidson. With a bunch of “Fat Boy” headlights lying around the warehouse, someone proposed that the light be modified for semi-truck use. After a few sketches and a new light bulb design, the swing arm was born.

The current swing arm sets come with ultra-bright replaceable halogen bulbs. They will also accept any 7” round LED headlight on the market today. Either way you choose, they are extremely bright and light the road incredibly well.

This guide will serve as a reference for those who want to know what they get when they purchase a set of KD swing arms. We will go over what is in the box and then put one side together.
