: Thanks! I'm going to run right out and get a pair ASAP. Anyone know a cheap source?

: RE: stoneguards, I have never in 22 years of driving ever had a stone take out one of my lights, so I'll pass for the time being on those. Having said that, I'm sure tempting fate will prove counterproductive and I'll take a stone in the eye as soon as the new lights are in. :P

You should be able to find the upgrade locally. Look for a parts source that stocks Hella parts. It really is a two part upgrade. Change your low beams to H4's and your high beams to H1's. You will need the new headlight lense and the halogen bulbs themselves. I stuck with the stock 55/60 watt lows and the 60 watt highs, but as mentioned previously, you can go higher on the wattages. The wiring is a little different than stock, but it is all plug -in. You'll see it immediately when you get the parts and take apart your stock headlights.

The H1/H4 bulbs make a huge difference! I love mine!
