They sold for $16.50 plus $1.99 shipping including insurance.That is dirt cheap for just a set of regular bulbs I gave $28 for the set I have in there now but don't want to buy another set if they aren't any brighter.

Trip I think you would be ok but 90 on low is bright, if you get 100/55 you should be better they will cause less cops to look.

100watts is pretty much the limit on the stock wiring harness, 110 might be pushing it, if you do go 110 make sure the sockets are clean with no corrosion or 'green stuff' in there, then put a dab of dielectric grease on them.

just upgrade to HID's. I use to use them bulbs in my wifes car until they melted the harness. Spent the loot on HID's and never looked back. HID's are only 35 watts, much brighter and last longer. Them bulbs are no where near as bright. Just remember, the bluer they are, the less you'll see on a rainy night. The greater the number of k's, the bluer the bulb. I run 6000ks and couldn't be happier. Look blue coming at you, but light up the road like a halogen light.

The 55W low beam will let you slide by the cops. I got popped a couple times for "not dimming" my high beam with 80W lows.

Then again I ran Hella 500s behind my grille in my Ram AS my headlights and never got stopped for that. Depends on the cop I guess.

you want to run 2x 110W with these funny small cables?
wire it up with better cables and a relay, then 2x 110W will be ok.,

I thought about the melted pigtail deal also.I melted the plugs on my altima from just a set of 60/80 H4s in euro houseings. So I am getting ready to order 2 sets of these.One set for car and other for jeep after I figure what bulb I go with.I just don't like the bluebulbs or the blue that HID produces.

Well I just read a PM from autogyver.He said he had the same light and asked about brighter bulbs from the seller of the lights and they said it would melt the housing so I guess I will just get by with my driving lights or bite the bullit and buy these.They are black reflectors also but I have seen these in person and they are brighter than the stock jeep headlights.even though they are driving lights I think if removed from the houseing they will mount in the headlight housing of the jeep.I may try it.http://store.classicgarage.com/helblacmagla1.html
