i’m looking for a low cost led headlight bulb replacement. i gotta figure textron used a somewhat standard bulb/socket setup on these bundles of pure joy and there has to be a $20-30 led bulb available at one of the big box retailers.

anyone here found one? awesome off road has them for $69, but i’m not on a fixed income(pun intended in case the father in law is viewing ) so every dollar wasted, um…. i mean invested counts.

when shopping for leds , the lights you need are h-13 leds i found mine on walmart.com lots to choose from, paid $24. and very bright, big improvement over dim halogen bulbs.

i got a set of white/yellow h13’s, in fear of getting the ban hammer from hollywood i wont post a link. do a search for h13 3000/6000k bulbs

they are great, except there is a wiring issue for hi/low beam that i need to get fixed. the xx always shows i’m on hi beam no matter what position the switch is on and they either run yellow or white. i really like the yellow color even at night. they are a tight fit next to the radiator too.

i just ordered led bulbs for my jeep wrangler. on the site that i ordered them, i asked if they had bulb kits for our wildcat xx. they just wrote me back asking to confirm the bulb size . can anyone here help me with this info, or is h-13 all i need to tell them ?

thanks in advance.

sorry to bring this thread back from the dead. my wildcat xx came with a set of similar bulbs, look like the picture in post #7 in the thread. 8000 lumen bulbs. there was apparently some issue with them with previous owner as he did not have a fuse in the hi beam slot, and i recently started blowing the low beam fuse if i turn on the headlights. it’s an instant pop, like a short. i disconnected the bulbs today and am able to keep a 10amp fuse in the fuse block with no issues, appears to be bulb.

i guess my question is this, do i need to run a larger fuse, like a 15 or 20amp for these aftermarket bulbs or do i just have faulty ones and should replace?

wasteland 1080, i have the beamtech setup. we always have the low beams on, even during the day. i probably have not run the high beams longer than 5 or 6 minute bursts. no issues with fuses, still running whatever ac installed.
