DB, where did you get the blue light next to your hibeam bulb. Noticed when I was working on getting the moisture out of my headlight lenses theres a spot for a bulb. Just curious..

Ohhhh. The high beam bulb is a "super-white" bulb that is made of blue glass. The intensity of the HID in the lows make them glow like they're on.

Even when the lights are off, you can see the blue glass of the high beam bulbs color the reflectors

If there is it would be behind the chrome light reflectors if you saw it on the back-side.

If I disassemble it agian, ill take a pic of it. It looks like itll show through on the left side of the hi-beam bulb.

Btw, I ordered some amber silver coated bulbs on Ebay for my blinkers. I have them for my bronco and they are mint. Best part is they don't show any yellow relection but they light up amber. Ill have to get a pic up when I install them.

Goodluck with those bulbs, they don't stay chrome for ever and they burn out frequently. Make sure to get a few backups just in case.

The super-bright 60LED bulbs were made by Supermodularion who is an admin here. Try PMing him.

Not sure if anyone ever got back to you and I'm too lazy to go through the entire thread, but I'm using the red bulbs in the tail lights for the turn signals (second bulb from the bottom) and they work great. Had a little problem with the bulb socket tension, but that was easily fixed using a dental pick and pulling the contacts out a bit.

As far as performance, they look great and are much brighter than the standard bulb.

The 60 LEDs we just got from David are awesome. Haven't much really notice catching anyone inside back of me involving guard when braking. So It's my opinion they are the great setup. Also noticed that this LEDs are a truer crimson!

I have some similar 3157's, but I use them for reverse lights. They do pretty well for me. They have 24 SMD LED's, found them on ebay. I have a nite pic also but its pretty shotty lol, nothin but glare.

I also put up a pic of the chrome/amber bulbs that 04z71rado had mentioned way back, had them for just over 5 months now.
