Got the LED H13 Headlight bulbs in today. Look to be decent quality.

Interesting to note is I paid $49.99 total shipped for these. If you buy a standard pair of Halogen H13 bulbs locally, it'll cost you $44.00 + tax for a pair.

H13 are a combined High/Low beam bulb.

These will go in this weekend.

A few pics of the LED headlight bulbs.

Nice the box has a "New" sticker on it!



And the Bulbs themselves with associated hardware......



10,000 rpm fans on the LED heatsinks to cool them so you know they're good! LOL!

Will have to install the LED bulb on one side only and take some comparison pics after. All these people claim twice as bright as OEM Halogen bulbs. We'll see!

The FSM says you have to remove the headlight to change any of the 3 bulbs in it? There's a giant access panel in each fender well liner that you need to pull off to remove the headlight. One nut through the access panel and two screws from the front at the bottom near the bumper cover. It's more than big enough to get my hand in there so I'm wondering why I can't access the bulbs from the access panel opening? WTF?

Further investigation is needed and will be done this weekend.

Interesting that you can almost always find the owners manual and usually all the associated documents as a package on Eghey!

For example I found this package as there wasn't anything in the glove box at all. $10.45 shipped. Should be here later today.

Got an offer in for 4x of these OEM alloy wheels for a 2004 Durango. We'll see how it goes. $415 shipped. I doubt it'll happen!

Picked up everything I need to convert to REC NAV over the weekend.

Got the NAV Surround Bezel And NAV OEM bracket from Eghey. $78 and $14 respectively shipped.

Already had a spare REC NAV unit from my Magnum SRT8 days along with the NAV Antenna and NAV DVD. Should be a Plug-n-Pray install !

Wheel offer is a bust. Looks like I'll be paying around $500 for a set of 4 shipped. Basically the price of 4 individual wheels. I'll keep looking.

Trying to keep it OEM/Stock looking and not Ricer Rims!

All the tires on there now are mismatched brands/series. Sizes are all the same.

Curious what you will find with the leds. I've seen some that were extremely bright but didn't project worth a crap.

I'll let you know once they're installed...hopefully tomorrow.

Remember these aren't the same as what people buy for "Tower" LEDs for Turn Signals and Tail Lights. Flash Back LEDs etc.

High Intensity SMD LEDs. I'll up date this.

Were these Projector or Reflector applications?

Also as usual with Eghey there's a broad spectrum of "Quality" or actual fact checking.

These were purchased through Amazon so I'm confident they'll work fine. With Ebay it's a crap shoot on Quality!

Got several Audio/NAV options coming in the next week. Durango NAV Surround Bezel is on the way along with the appropriate Chrysler Radio bracket for NAV.

Will try an REC upgrade to start. Hoping the REC I have is fully functional.

If not....then I have a Boss NAV unit coming from Crutchfield with a Backup Camera. Pretty cheap thanks to all that Black Friday BS. w00t!
