The words street legal and DOT are not found on the retro solutions website. You may have assumed otherwise, but those headlights are not legal for highway use in the USA. If you're going illegal, the 9007 80/100W off-road bulbs are about $15 ea and just as rude. The stock DOT lighting pattern is maintained, unlike aftermarket HID conversions:

PS: a $5 ebay relay with 12or 14 ga power feed wire will be necessary. The stock 16 ga wiring will melt and the switches may fail unless you run a relay with proper cable fed from adequate amp fuse.
