Buy the heavy duty harness with the relays. Otherwise you will eventually burn up either your wiring or the socket. http://suvlights.tripod.com/suvlight...re-harness.htm



Chino over at PTE has several posts on his wiring and sockets (and burnt reflectors inside the housing) burning up/melting from higher wattage bulbs.

Yup, and the bulbs weren't cheap, either.

Looks like that harness provides a better socket than the OEM, original headlamp socket plugs into the new harness.
