Well i was at radio shack today and saw white bulbs that were the same exact size/shape as my aftermarket side markers (smoked and came with yellow bulbs) These are bright white and i bet they would look great!

Once i install them (with in the next week or so) i will def post some pics. .


Total cost for 2 of these bulbs: 3.74$ (us ny)

I would'nt go getting side marker lights from radio shack if i were you. the wrong bulbs can burn your wiring or melt the plastic bulb housing.

for sure... check the amperage.. and any other type of fusing that might need to be used... no sense in causing little wiring fires (which smell terrible)

I did the same, at autozone and then realized that there is an amber cover that blocks the bulb in the smoked sidemarkers, bought some bright white bulbs, and the damn thing is still amber! haha....oh well
