    Absolutely, since you never said what 810 you have. What's wrong with the lights you have now. Or how much yout willing to spend, I feel I answered accordingly to your vague post

    Hey John how you doing? I have put several sets of H IDs in the stock blizzard capsules and been satisfied for a cheap upgrade. If you want to spend more money I would go with the night saber 2s

    OK I have a blizzard 810 they all came with basically the same crappy headlights. 6" X 4" sealed beams. A few years ago people were using Meyer light Sabers or the saber II. I was just wondering is there were some new lights people were using. If you upgraded you lights what did you use, how do you like them? I was looking for peoples experiences and what they all liked. Then I can look at the options and decide. Any one using replacements for the sealed beams in the original housings? Just looking at what options are out there.
    Thanks

    I have been good how have you been. You want to by your old plow back for parts or another project? LOL I just picked up another plow to replace it.

    Any particular ones you have used. How do the the Night Saber II's install. Just replace the plugs on them or the truck. Which is better replacing the light side or the truck side.

    Get Hinikers verson of the night saber 2, they are plug and play and a great improvement over the arrow lights. Ebay usually has the best price on the lights.

    Hinikers or LED both sound like good options.

    We have put the Hinikers on a few of ours. Plug right in. On a side note do the Hinikers now come w a different light? Have seen them w the same lights Curtis and Sno Way are using.

    Wait just a little longer on the Hiniker headlights. There is a new version coming that I will bet most dealers don't have yet. Seems even more robust and brighter. Same type of mounting.

    Do you have any info on them I can't find anything online? On the Hiniker web site it shows all the plows with what look the the ones which have been around for several years. Any ideal of a time frame. Thanks

    They appear to b the same as used an Curtis and Snow Way plows. I see Mill Supply is also selling them as Night Saber II replacements.

    Watch LEDs as they may not get warm enough to melt the snow off the headlights

    I have never run a set of the night saber's but i would say they are atleast equal to if not better then the new boss lights.
