So buy or borrow a Dremel, then.
They're not prohibitively expensive, and if you have one, you'll find other uses for it. I use one instead of clippers when I trim my dog's nails!

She gets an anxious look on her face when I simply say "Dremel", but she tolerates it OK. It's certainly not her favorite thing to do, but I've never made her bleed with the Dremel.

^^I know, but that tool is specific to dog grooming. I wanted a tool that I could use for all the things a Dremel can do, with one of those things being trimming a dog's nails.

Notice any difference in fuel economy or power? Sounds great.

Has any tried Nokya Hyper Yellow H16 9009 5202 bulbs in their fog lamps? I'm not big on the yellow vinyl overlays, so I thought I'd give these a try. Also, has anyone found any yellow H16 LED bulbs? I've looked everywhere and can only find them in either white or amber.

Stupid question: Is it legal to drive on public roads with the lights mounted onto a light bar lit? Or are they for off-road use only?

whoops didn't see the "lit" part. I would think that is technically illegal but in a snowstorm or gnarly fog i'd use em if they helped for sure.

The lights will be marked as "not for road use" or "for off-road use only" or something similar. I will also depend opn how you aim them.

You can have street legal lamps aimed poorly and be just as blinding.

The problem with using them in bad weather is that they may help you but hurt someone else and be just as dangerous.

excuse me for being dumb and answering your question with a dumb answer. H9 bulbs are H9 bulbs.

ok better answer. H9 bulbs are brighter bulbs than H11 bulbs(OEM, stock in our cars). to fit H9 bulbs, there is a tab that must be grind down to fit in the electrical connector

No need to re-post the same question to the same person. He either hasn't logged on and had time to answer your question, or he has seen your question, and is waiting for some reason to answer. Be patient!

Thanks! Is this the cheapest way to get that "white/blue" look? I like the look, and have bought silver stars before on a ford and was not happy with the result.

You still have the high beam function but its just an led light flashing... You lose the light flashing at a high angle. (Blinding people)
