Put in new LED headlight bulbs today and HOLY CHIT what a difference! I was sick of seeing the halogens with the led light bar. Now they match and look great!

Thankfully Idaho is one of the fewer states that allows them on state/county/city roads but they still are not allowed on any federal highways unless to cross/make very short runs to a trail. I am less than 25 minutes from probably 30 different trail heads. 99% are open to everyone but in winter its almost exclusively restricted to snowmobiles etc. We went to Lunch Peak over the weekend and probably next weekend a small camping trip. we had to cut the last ride short to let the dog out of the the house so yesterday I removed the rear drivers seat and cut a piece of plywood to cover it/floor openings and put some foam and pleather type fabric so the dog has a platform to come on the future trips. window nets are in the mail too. but this was a couple of pics I took. My wife always takes the better ones lol. We went with my dad and my buddy from church. Ours is the orange 4dr. Im gonna take out the current foam next summer and use a single thick piece.

Who did you go with? I have been considering opt7 and xenondepot they seem to be very popular with us based customer service etc. Also plug n play or mods?

Plug n play. I was afraid of flicker per the instructions but they are working perfectly high and low beam. $40 Amazon. I try not to buy from them but you just can't beat the price. One problem though, the plug for the bulb won't fit through the round bulb retainer so it will have to be trimmed. This may only be a problem with my aftermarket head lights. Anyone else have this issue???

Now, let's see how long they last
