    Lots of money, probably well spent. Are you doing the conversion yourself?

    The newest ones are much better in my opinion. More light output (dual burn), better mounting style, and turn signals in the main housing. It’s all good, well since the bulb diffuser issue has been corrected.

    I've got both the newest style lights and the older style and the older style definately produce better/more light than the new ones. I've got 2 plows with the new lights and I am not impressed by either.

    I used the lights from a FEL. 1 H-7 bulb (55 watt HID conversion), 1 DRL and a third bulb in it as well as turn signals.

    I might be done with Boss lights if these work out.

    Here they are Jewell1386,

    The third bulb is a 100 watt H3. I had no idea what it was at first until I took it out and looked at it.

    There is. But they don't work worth a ****! LOL!

    FEL is an acronym for a Front End Loader. A Komatsu, I believe.

    I hear ya, though. My whole plow set up is old school, and ugly, so it's a good match!

    They mount like they are sitting on the desk.
