Low beam bulb?

Anyone know off top of head what type of bulb the low beam is?

Anyone upgrade the bulbs to some sort of LeD?

One burned out on our trip and havenít crawled under yet to yank it out.

Nobody with any success swapping bulbs?

I put supernova v.4 leds in my Denali truck that also has a projector lens like Legacy and the improvement is unreal. Sharp cutoff so not offensive to oncoming traffic.

Need something better than the oem that just died.

I remember lots of posts about headlights a few years back when our rig was brand new. I didn't worry about it since we seldom if ever travel at night (retired and don't need to). A while back I needed to take the rig out at night and was totally blown away with the dim lights. Felt like I needed to get out with a flashlight to see if they were on! If anyone has found different bulbs, I will change mine

Just crawled under to see what type they are and what a piece of junk. Unlike any bulb setup I’ve seen, can’t figure out how to get the bulb out of the metal harness.

Hmm, something good for me not to fool with on the road. We are on a two month trip in the Northwest, guess I'll wait till I get home later this summer.

Had a bulb burn out and finally determined why these low beams are absolute ****.

Removed the bulb and despite everything posted here the OEM bulb type they uses is a H3 with the odd ball spade connectors and strange collar that goes into the housing.

What is even more odd is the eagle eyes housing after I cleaned the dust off of it is stamped for a H11 bulb type. H11 can’t really be used as there is no way to secure it into the housing because of the tabs that must be used at the 12 and 6 O’clock position on the housing. Weirdest setup I’ve ever seen.

Anyhow, installed the supernova v.4 leds with H3 collar to fit housing and they are so much brighter, sharp cutoff beam not offensive to oncoming traffic. Only modification required was to cut a hole big enough in back of rubber dust cap to squeeze the cooling fan through, the cap is stretchy rubber so it doesn’t need to be too big to get it through.

I had good success with these bulbs on my denali truck which is a projector style housing as well and I believe it’s a good match for this as well.
