My 1998 Dodge had aftermarket HID lights when I bought it. They were awesome bright. After realizing they weren't legal, I replaced them with original bulbs. They allow light up high and blind other motorists. It was bad. Oncoming traffic would pull slow down and pull onto the shoulder as I approached. It was gonna cause an accident and kill someone.
too many o them here.
drivers manual in 70s used to say "dim your lights, the driver you blind may be the one that kills you". not pc, but troof. should be in there now.
one o my peeves bout work/drivin anymore...


jesus loves you.
everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

Eye found cheap head lite assemblies for the GWH, the old were beyond restoration, one was actually holding water on the inside with the reflector grey/black.
Exact fit, standard bulbs, easy to aim/adjust, cheap, Taiwan plastic, 65 clams delivered. Even if they need replaced every couple years, it's worth the price of admission.

Nothing but the best for GWH.

If they're the Dorman ones, they'll last every bit as long as OEM. Between headlights and taillights eye must have 2 dozen of them going up and down the road

Clumsy mf'ers
