I don't see so good any more and the stock back up lights leave a lot too be desired , So I set out looking for more light and here is what I came up with . started off trying a 50watt bulb ,it gets some hot and draws a ton of power ,more of a load than what should be placed on the circuit IMO , then tried a set of HID h7 bulbs and ballasts I think this is the ticket !!!
photos to show how I did it .

this is the stock bulb with the Grange lights turned off , hard to tell because the camera wont take a photo with out turning its light on it was jest way to dark in there .

now this is the 50 watt bulb .





here is the 50 watt bulb in the dark.



now for the HID set up.

Note let the RTV cure over night with the bulb in the socket too "glue the two together" and bond ..... before reassembly .
