    Did a search and can't find anything with real world experience.

    Thinking of pulling the trigger on a set of OEM LED headlights, but want to hear from folks in snow regions about their ability or lack of in regards to keeping themselves from getting covered by snow while driving.

    They seem to work just fine in MN. Haven't had any problems or even thought about it. I park outside and it sees plenty of snow/ice

    Can vouch that they do quite well! My Parents haven't had any issues with theirs, and us starting our Company in Bemidji, MN gave us PLENTY of testing in the Snow/Ice and never had an issue!

    Haven’t had any issue here in Alberta, Canada. Have had the TSS disable itself from snow covering the Toyota logo

    Lost track after #1.
    Drove thru a couple of snow storms on I-40 on my way back from AZ over the Christmas break and had some accumulation around the edges, but nothing around the main light projection.

    Yep. Agree. No issues with the headlights collecting snow or ice. The precollision system and auto high beams are worthless once the front of the truck gets slushed up tho. And the parking sensors go crazy and have to be turned off too.
