    Im looking to do the headlight conversion on my blazer where you can use the H4 bulbs. I have a 88 blazer with the quad headlight set up. I have seen where a few guys on here have done this and I have a few questions for you.
    1. Do they make that big off a difference?

    2. How much do you have tied up into it?

    3. Where did you get yours?

    4. What wattage bulbs did you use?

    5. If you used higher wattage bulbs did you have to do any wiring to compinsate?

    Any links to pictures or where to get them would be muchly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Clint

    1. YES. brighter and easy to replace bulbs
    2. $80 (2x $40)
    3. JC whitney
    4. 55w (street legal)
    5. I think it would blind more people with higher wattage. My lights are at rearview mirror level :D

    Here's a link to a thread on how I did my conversion: http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175548

    That link should answer most of your questions. This is the best safety upgrade I've done to my K5 next to making my brake work well. The stock lights suck and my new setup is awesome to say the least. Let me know if you have any other questions.
