jdhallissey Just 4in white leds. Get some really bright bulbs in them and bam your done. Less very little power so you can tie into your old harness. actually if you find the hot wire you can tap off of that and run a wire back to the cab for the switch and then you have a switched light without to much work.

seems like an install error.... or driver error ... or probably both.

im sure if you put some thought into it you will be fine.

jdhallissey well depending on how you want them running. Do you want them on to trail ride too? If yes then I would wire them with a relay and a new switch.
