I've seen a couple of them at the store.
Don't want that yellow bulb look anymore.

Went with these. Big difference over what was in it, reasonably priced and good life expectancy.

Went to LED's on mine, much better light, brighter and much whiter. Changed both the headlamp bulbs and both fog lamps to high power LED's. :BANANA:

For the headlamp bulbs I used these: YITA- Pair 9007 Philips 160W 16000LM LED Headlight Kit High/Low Beam Bulbs 6000K
For the Foglamp bulbs I used these: 9005 80W 8000LM CREE LED Fog Lights Kit Lamps Bulbs 6000K High Power

I also installed a LED light bar on the front brush guard wired with a relay into the high beam headlamp circuit! :D
CREE 4INCH 18W ea.+ 5D 23INCH 336W LED LIGHT BAR SPOT&FLOOD 24"

I plan to go to LED's on all bulbs in the future except the turn signals due to the flasher issue...

When buying LED's be careful, lots of false advertising out there especially on eBay...do your due diligence... :wink:

WWDiesel, for turn signals you can install load resistors. I am currently running front led turn signals and they seem to be working just fine.

I changed mine to HID about a year ago. I love how bright and white they are.

X2 on the Phillips Vision Plus. They are a significant upgrade for the OEM housings and won't break the bank. (HID's will need special lenses to direct light properly.) I like the Phillips more than Silverstars because they are more white. Silverstars have a bluish tint in comparison.
