Thanks for the info Ken...Saw the John Deere tip over on MUD but I was coming up 'dry' in my search for any local places to buy these...Now, let's hope the place doesn't catch on and up their price

That's it. I used dex online to look up the number typing John Deere in, but thats the place.

I am only changing low beams right now, but thanks for the tip on the High beams Mike. I see on Mud your checking to see if they are HIR's.

My Hi beams are fine. The low beams could use improvement.

Chris, if you order for yourself, order a couple for me. I can go pick them up myself or just give you the money.

I feel bad for Chris. I showed up to pickup my bulbs after I called and they said they were in and he was there leaving. Apparently the parts guys got us mixed up and told him to come in, but figured out when he got there they were for me.

It was a real easy mod to swap them. Just trim the tab like it says in the mud thread.

Don't feel bad at all, Ken. It was the shop that told me wrong. I'm grateful you found the place and posted up. Otherwise I might have waited and not done this mod. I may run by Christo's tomorrow and pick up the harness, too.

Matt, I just saw your post, but I will call the guy tomorrow. I told him he ought to order another half dozen or so and that there would be others who would want them. He said it would be three business days from Moline, IL, so I'm not expecting anything until next week.

I used my mini pliers to snip the tabs down to size. Takes less than a minute. Light's lots better than what I had before. How much brighter does Slee's harness make HIRs?

Nakman swears by it. For $40 if it makes things a little brighter it's good by me.

The harness makes it so your lights get power direct from the battery, instead of after swimming around a much longer, more convuluted maze of wiring. Also the wiring is thicker than stock.. so you get less resistance, better current flow, etc.. someone better at OHM's law than I can perhaps offer you a better explanation but that's it. The harness also makes plugging in an aftermarket set of lights super easy. Plus it's yellow, so that's gotta be worth something.

It's only $40 now? Dang I think it used to be double that.. I think I paid ~$120 for the harness, accessory light kit, & factory switch. but that was a couple years ago. There's also a guy on Yotatech who sells these (Roger?) but they're more for Runners though I suspect he could make them for an 80, heck maybe they just work. But he's got a good web site that explains the benefits if you want to take a minute to search for it.
