So today we did the head light MOD . first we re-pinned low beam so we could get hi beam bulb 60W in its place. then added a relay so all 4 lights will be on at one time . while we were in the lights we drilled the side corner markers and put in a small LED. So now he is a little safer rollin down the road . and dare i say BRIGHTER . this is a cool upgrade take that 30-40 foot hole out of you high beam lighting he is out in the van i will post pic and how to wire it up when its back home. Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays to all.
