    Boss dealer told me to stay away from the New Style headlights. He said they fall apart internally when plowing. I don't know though I have the last model year headlights on mine and they look great.

    the inside did have a recall. when the plow would hit something the reflector would pop off. there is recall notice and if you have the problem it is replacable by warranty. they fixed the problem around Feb/March. the newer light have more out put and have a mounting system is being for stable and more reliable than others.

    they hid from boss have been discountinued, well atleast the old style pre 08. they worked, but they we very very very very very very expensive. I think if you search the forum someone did an aftermarket hid kit and retro into the pre 08 boss light system.

    Do a search under BOSS Forums under smartlight and you will find a listing of the BOSS parts required to do the complete conversion.

    DO NOT convert . back in feb of 2008 when they came out I had purchased one of the last loads to come out of the factory before the change over feb 13 2008 A DATE that will last in my head forever. The new lights did have a repair to deal with but BOSS fixed it and the new lights are awesome . Sell your blade and by a new one with the new lights . If you where local to me I could show you that by the time you buy everything to convert over you should have sold it and buy a new plow ? STAY away from the HID 's look awesome BUT its like a hot blonde looks great but it will cost you in the end .

    basically you are looking at $395.00 for the parts and $30.00 for S/H. I already included our 10% plowsite discount to Plowsite.com members. This includes wiring, new 08+ headlights, new lightbar, and new mounting brackets w/ hardware. We have everything in stock.
