    I have purchased a new 990,it has the led aux. lighting. I would like to have a super white bulb to match the Led light look,and output. What should I use?

    European Headlight with HID is the only way to match probably. I have the highest powered GE bulb in the current light and it's still way more yellow than my LED spots.

    If you're going to use a "legal" wattage bulb, try the Sylvania Silver Stars.

    Piaa's will be suggested shortly too, I'm sure. :D

    I'm running a 110/85 bulb in the Toomer, with power coming straight from the battery through a relay kit. Whatever you do to the light, be sure to install a relay kit and fat wires. Amazing what a full 13.5+vdc does for the light output. :evil
