    Ok Guys... I asssume it is easy to replace the lights but have not tried yet.. On my way home tonight my drivers side low beam went out.

    It looks like everyone is running an h4 for the headlights? Does it do both High and Lows?

    Also does anyone have DIY on replacement? Does the headlight have to be removed or just the bulb? I did a search and didn't find much.

    Also lastly what bulb do you guys recommend?

    thanks in advance:D

    Its easy to remove and put a new one in.
    Pop the hood, pull out the big round black rubber backing to the headlight bulb. Unplug it too. You might not be able to see it, but feel around as theres a clip that hold in the bulb.. its just a shaped clip that you can pop open by squeezing. Take the bulb out, put the new one in, clip it, plug it, and put the rubber backing back on. It's pretty simple.

    Luminics bulbs are by far the best. www.luminicsusa.com

    Dont know what color you're looking for, but they had two shades of white, blue, purple, and yellow.

    They're great lights, I have white heads and blue fogs. Thinking of getting some blue headlight bulbs. I'll sell you my Luminics Hyper White H4 headlight bulbs if you're interested. They've been in since the beginning of November.

    To get it fixed quick over the holiday, just get a standard 55/60 H4, but if they are hard to find, a 9003 is a match also.
