Also the guy above you said they are h3 bulbs? Can you confirm that??

That's correct. Those metal clips on the side pop off. I'm not sure how you'd mount those without brackets, though.

Cool. Just as a safe measure I asked the seller if they have replaceable bulbs and he said they're sealed so idk what to believe now. I need em to be replaceable because I want to run yellow led's on em. I'll ask him to take another look at em.

curious, if you think $36 is "so damn expensive" what do you think a reasonable price would be for one?

Maybe I'm ignorant but I paid $50 for a new pair of headlights with halo's on em. So I think $20-40 would be fair for 26 year old 2 x 8in fog lamps.

The size of your extra lights is not as important as how much light you actually get out of them. Most states these days allow two headlights and two running lights. For the running lights, you should go WHITE. They can be bumper-mounted, or no higher than the level of your existing two main headlights.

Four is better than two. Fog lights work better if they are mounted lower. You can add fogs on a separate switch by mounting your yellows on the underside of the bumper, or INSIDE your bumper if possible.

After that if you wish, then it's just anything crazy above the windshield level you want to mount for off-road use on ANOTHER switch.

If you start adding more power sources like a three-way 12V outlet below your dashboard, with a USB port on it, then consider a higher-capacity alternator. But that's expensive. You can get around all that by installing a Bad Boy battery in your rig, top of the line, whatever. Go to LED's when possible on your dash lights, turn signals, interiors, brake and license etc for better results and less energy draw.

Funny Side Story: Many years ago, I had a friend who rebuilt his own version of a Jeep truck. He went to a Boeing public auction and bought a pair of 727 landing lights. He had to get a specially-made alternator to run them. But he could light up a field for football with them. Without the engine, his battery went totally dead in less than five minutes running the lights. So he always kept the engine running. That's the most light I've ever seen on a truck. His wife ended up divorcing him, though. He spent way too much and went way too crazy with that truck.

There is no space behind the reflector, so most LEDs won't fit in the housing.
