Hey everyone, hope you are safe and warm this winter. I was thinking about night vision since I am 80 now. What is the brightest legal hesdlight for my 55 Nomad? Halogen is not the brightest, I have them now. Also will it need a relay?

I’m thinking Donny Bock at American Autowire might have the answer for you. Donny is smart and he’s also a car guy.

I highly recommend relays, even for stock headlights. The factory wires are very small for the amps required for headlights.
