    89\' - \'91 Headlights

    Does anyone make an HID conversion for the dual sealed beam headlights on an '89 Blazer? what size are the lights?... I know they're smaller than the 6"x9"

    NEVER been stuck... *yet*

    With those super small head lights, we're out of luck. I've asked many speciality light shops about them and found nothing. I'm wondering how hard it would be to install newer Chevy truck rectanguler headlamps which have the interchangable bulbs. With the bulbs, you can run some really nice PIAA super white bulbs. The older Blazers with the large single headlamps (round or square) can benefit from Hella units which have interchangeable 9004 bulbs. I did this with PIAA super white bulbs in my Typhoon and it made a huge difference driving at night. If you really want true HID, expect to pay over $1000. The bulbs and the ballast are just too much $$$. Thats half of a NV4500 tranny or Atlas t-case!

    Do you knw the dimensions(sp?) of the light? I was thinking of putting a small driving light in, from Hella or Piaa, into the Highbeam side.

    When I ordered my parts for the conversion to the '91 grille, they are listed as 3"x5".
