I really don't have any complains with the stock bulbs, but this seems like a cheap mod/upgrade... Are you worried about any possible melting from the extra head/amp load on the wires?

Rated at the same specs as stock, just different filaments I belive it is. I'll have to check with my dad on that though, he's the operations manager at the Sylvania world headquarters.


Looks good man.

Yes, they use a thinner, high temperature filament that burns hotter and whiter at the same current. They are somewhat more "fragile" than standard bulbs, but they put out whiter light at the same electrical power as stock lamps.

Silverstars are a must. I had them on my old 2002 Ranger EDGE in headlight and fogs. I plan to get them and Silverstar signals for my 'Rus after I get the LX crystal headlights.
