You can get thoes super bringht led bulbs that they sell on ebay for your headlights. My frined had them and they really wore bright.
My headlights are euro depos so they are 2 peace and i can open them easy your factory ones are sealed units ( they went from 2 peace to sealed when they got the angel eyes). I love the CCFLs they are reall bright and light up fully not like the led where you see each led individually when you get close to the headlight.

So the Euro Depo comes with the CCFL installed? I've opened mine a few times... to fix the adjusters.

I custom made a trailer hitch for Rusty today. I think it turned out pretty nice. The tongue swivels to the side when not in use....to save my shins.

I popped out the studs on the bumper energy absorbers and replaced them with 1/2" bolts to mount my hitch. I guess I should have taken pix with the bumper cover off.
