Sounds like a short, or a power spike to the circit to that bulb. If you are running high power bulbs, without the proper relay, or upgraded harness you can have problems like that.

i always read that make sure that you are not getting any oil from your fingers on the bulbs, so i try to install em with gloves or a soft rag to keep that from happening.

I suggest replacing the light bulb again with a latex or nitrile glove on. Basically the type fo gloves worn by physicians this way you have no chance of getting any of your skin oils on the bulb. I am thinking that is your problem your skin is touching the bulb there for putting your skin oil on the bulb causing the ulb to blow prematurely.

yea i keep my hands covered placing them in. I've always known to do that. I put my stock bulbs back in the truck and they wont blow for nothing. I guess it was the wattage thing. I hate the stock bulbs. they are 65/55, what can i do to where i can run my 100/80 bulbs without blowing them?
