lights

I should say that my new wildcat sport has the worst headlights ever put on a machine......I would think that a 55 watt halogen bulb would be brighter,I took out my amber led bulbs,so I could try the factory ones,you can't even see after dark to ride it I do know my bumper does block some of the light,good thing for light bars,I got on the internet and found a set of led bulbs that are 3,800 lum's on high and 2,200 lum's on low,which would be perfect,but they have drivers and fans,and the supplier told me they are not for mud or water.......

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........

You are right. just like the lower pins on the Eagle snow plows. If they would hook it up, they would see their pins suck! GM headlight bulb replacement. Who the hell thought of this! See pic to replace the headlight bulbs on my GMC... This engineer needs needs his two hanging buds removed!

It is even more fun when you need to change out a bulb on an Impala, only the fenders stay on. Owners manual even states "lamp replacement return to your authorized dealer."

I just bought a set of these to try,I can tell these have a much bright white look to them,the factory ones had a dirty color look......and they do make a 881 kit for the prowlers.
