change the bulbs in the hellas to 100 watt bulbs.......alot brighter than 55watts that are in there now....and its cheaper than buying new lights.

you may be able to.....but the bulb bases may be different. only thing i can say is take one apart and see if they look the same. as far as wires holding the current and all....i think you'd be fine.

So for me it is what I can afford at the time.
Never thought about rust with the PIAAs...

I think what I'm gonna do is just replace the bulbs with 100w bulbs.

My Homemade Light Bar

Check out my homemade light bar. I had these Warn lights from another truck, so I thought I would try to mount them. I like a simple and clean look, so I made my own out of aluminum rectangular tubing and extrusion that I had laying around. The lights have a fog beam and spot beam, and they really light up the night. I have never had 4 on a truck at once so I am looking forward to trying them out tonight.
