100 watt bulbs are pretty easy to find. You can get them at most auto parts stores for that matter. If not, the next and best bet is an off-road four wheel drive parts store. I'm assuming you have plenty of those in NH. I use to use them in my rally driving lights but found the elements easily broke from the pounding especially if turned off and on too quickly (they get way too hot). I replaced them all (FOUR) with 55 watts and little loss in light output doing so. A 100 watt bulb does not put out twice as much light as a 55watt bulb as some think. Its just double the power consumption for about a 25 to 50 percent intensity increase depending on the quality of the bulb and its efficiency.

yeah, im looking at the Noykea.. they say what... 55 wat draw but an output of 100 wats or 80 watts.

then theres PIAA's clame to draw the same as 55W and pump out 110W!!! thats a lot of light, im looking to replace the bulbs in the houseing i have.. there a steel and glass so its all good :)

i cant buy the 55W ones.. because the only ones the Auto zone has cost 40$ for 2... i payed like 20$ for the light kit.

^ like this, i stuck some in the lower grill. i couldn't find a good mounting location in the grill, besides the honey comb looked like it was going to block a lot of light. i can't wait 'till it rains again, i want to see what kind difference it makes. i can see a lot further now and more off to sides too

yow man!

thats Exactly what i did, mounted them to the fraim and have them hanging down. but mine have a blue blue tint and come out white :)

the new ones i have.. but dont have bulbs for.. are gona get in the honeycomb uptop.

make sure you aim them for about 20-30ft infront of you on the ground.. and they will fill the spot between your Highbeams and the car :D
thats how i have mine set to do.

like this? lol it was just too easy. mine are aimed straight ahead ________. helps me see further.
well not exactly the same mount, the screw that holds the plastic line holders upto the steel bumper, i got longer screws for that and used some washers for a spacer to drop it down so i wouldnt be shining directly into the grill. put them back up there with RED locktite

im gona take some pictures with my phone this weekend, and put them in the approiate places on the bords, then start working on my next location of in t he Honey comb grill. maby with some Hyper Yellows' once i get my Paypal acct straightned up with my bank.
