    I want to put some of the blue colored headlights that the rice racers use in my truck. They really light up the road. Is this possible? Would I have to do any mods to put some in? My lights now SUCK!.

    I believe kits are sold to do the conversion. I think they are called Hella lights but that may be a brand name. Oh, and it isn't cheap. The kits I saw were in the $300 range.

    well you can by sylvania silverstar replacement sealed beams, they're really bright and good quality...pilot sells a kit (autozone) where you can convert to composite headlamp assemblys, its a really easy kit to install and you can run any brand bulb of the correct series (9004, etc)...

    The best way to get GOOD light for your K5 is to purchase an H4 conversion kit. If you want to run blue lights you can buy blue-tinted bulbs, although they actually throw less light than the clear bulbs.

    I don't want blue, or sealed beams. I want a conversion kit so I can put regular bulbs in. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    yes tim I have seen those on ebay too, they fit the 4666(or is it the 4656?) size lights. best way to find them online is go to s-10's since that is the normal light for em. Just type in 4666 (or 4656) conversion.
