    Is there a way to update or upgrade my sealed beam headlights. They are very anemic.

    Maybe the lights from a later year, when did they get rid of the sealed beam?

    Look for a 200mm H4 conversion, I’d highly recommend those by Hella, it will convert your truck from sealed beams to H4s and vastly improve output. From there add some Philips GT200 series H4 performance bulbs, or follow the upgrade linked above for a huge output improvement.

    Ya sorry, I’ve gotten used to calling the 95.5 trucks 96’s because everyone else seems to. 95.5 to 97 had sealed beams.

    Did this a couple weeks ago, and was a HUGE improvement. Well worth every penny.
