Hella high performance 100/80w 9007 bulbs

Does anyone with an upgraded headlight harness have the Hella high performance bulbs "for offroad use only"? I'd be curious to hear what you think of them and if youve had any problems frying the headlamp housing. Are they worth it over the 65/55 +80 bulbs? I just got the LMC headlight harness and am looking for the brightest non-HID setup possible.

People with stock headlight wiring need not apply :) These are 80 low/100 high bulbs that are off limits to those with stock headlight harnesses

btw they also have a $10 version of these with no blue coating. lol. that IS the right choice if we're just talking purely light output but im not a fan of yellow/gold. or blue for that matter lol

Haha was just about to post up the cheaper ones. Im not a fan of the yellow bulbs either but im also not a fan of $80 for bulbs.So if i do make the switch im down with the yellow.Plus i think they will be better in this dam fog we have been having.35w 6k hids suck in the fog.

I do know that those types of bulbs put out ALOT of heat and can sometimes can melt plastic lenses. Seen it before with a Chrysler 300. I think those were 150w though.

Don’t forget to rewire the OEM wiring for the headlights.
Get one of the adapter harnesses that just plugs in and reroutes the power directly from the battery.

I use the 100/55 watt bulbs, still have the lows at OEM level and the highs are great.

JC Whitney has them...

The heat isn't a problem, my housings are designed for 100 watt bulbs.

LMC has them, also Summit, others too, search the Site and the Web.

are you talking about stock ranger housings or something else?
I really want to run these but an 80w low beam scares the hell out of me. I don't want to f*** up my lamps. But if someone can convince me that our lamps can handle that kind of heat then I'm sold.

I replaced the 03 Headlight Housings with black aftr mkt units and the new Housings are rated for the 100 watt bulbs; OEM Unit may not be.

Not sure what will happen, never had a melt down so I can’t say, all I am thinking is more heat than OEM and same with the harness.

Luck with the project.
