You will be able to run alot with these stators. In my Commander I had all 4 headlights switched to 35w hids, ran 5 4" hids on my light bar, 2 6' Sick-Stick lighted whips, Sick-Scanner hood light & stereo with no problems.

That is a good size stator. I like lots of lights for night riding in the dunes.

Can you put an ebay link up for the kit you bought for the stock lights? Definately going to be the first thing I do to mine when I get it.
Couldn't figure out how to do a link on my phone. On ebay, search 55w 9005 hid kit. Scroll down to the $37-$45 price range. 9005 is the bulb type, and I would recommend getting 6000k (kelvin) (tempature). Some sellers have a checklist of what bulb type and tempature during checkout, but the one I used did not. So I clicked on seller, send seller a message, and told them that I just placed an order and asked for bulb type 9005 in 6000k. Here's a screen shot of the one I bought from.

A pic of the lights I added, 2 hid's plus 1 led. The stock have been converted to hid, so that gives me 6 hid's and 1 led! Should light up the night. Also, I tried covering one of the yellow panels in vinyl, but it didn't turn out good. So I Plastidip'd it.
Glamisfan,
I just popped my front plastics off the bumper too and was looking at how to install a 10" Rigid light I have to the tabs. It looks like it will work, but I was looking at the radiator. Do you have any concerns that your radiator might not get enough airflow with those lights there? Have you ridden it like that yet?

I think that since the grill is louvered and angled away from the center, that it'll do okay. I will be running it tomorrow in Glamis, so I'll keep a watch on the temp. You know that the bumper is aluminum, right? I tried and tried to think of the best way to mount the lights. I was going to order some clamps, but could only find 1 3/4" and 2", and the bumper is 1 1/2". So I wound up bolting a piece of 1 1/4" angle iron to those two channels that are welded on top of the bumper. Painted black and with the lights installed, you don't even notice the angle.

Kartek and a few other off road shops carry nice ballast holders that you weld to the frame or lightbar. They are about $35 for a dual ballast holder.

I will have to find a picture of them on my old light bar, they really clean up the looks of those ugly ballasts.
that's not a crack on the frame in the first pic left side by the square tube is welded?

Good catch & worth checking for sure but I'll bet it's just dirt stuck in the edge of the bead.

I'm ordering some HID's does anyone have an article on installing them?
Here's a few pictures. You have to stick two wires into a plug that comes with the kit, and pay attention to making the hot and ground match up with the factory plug. And I had to use a Cresent on the bulbs to get them to lock in. Used hose clamps to mount the ballasts to the frame.
