Default 80 owners, cheap and easy head light mod

Just ordered 4 from the local John Deere dealer for $10 each. The 9012 HIR bulbs from other sources are $30 each. He had never sold these before, but ordered them and they will be in on Friday.

I've had the HIR bulbs for a couple years now. Those, with Christo's harness, make a world of difference over stock. good stuff!

4 because I have 2 LX450's

I already ordered and paid for mine. $ 10 each vs $30-$40 for the same thing elsewhere. That's because here you are buying a bulb for a tractor and elsewhere you are buying a bulb for an expensive truck. Turns out they are both the same part.

High beam HIRs, 9011, came stock in the Avalanche, Viper and a few more. They are available from the GM dealer, Part #15094219. They are about 18.00 each.
