HO efficient bulbs tend to draw/require more current.
* OEM wiring is sub par for the newer HO type bulbs.
HO type bulbs are not generally a higher wattage...
just more efficient and requiring less resistance


Because of this... some bulbs will have a shortened life.
and the oem light harness can get warm from the resistance.
That resistance can be less then friendly to HO bulbs.

best way to eliminate any issue...
is by adding a performance headlight harness
that draws directly off the battery.

there are several mfgr's out there...

suvlights.com

danielsternlighting.com

some others I can't remember off hand.

It could be home brewed as well...
if ya know what yer doing.

I have the suv light harness...
I run HO 90/110 bulbs...
the bulbs are a recent install...
but the HO efficiency bulbs that were in there previous
were nearly 8 years old and still going.

Even with muh 90/110 watt bulbs...
the suv wiring harness does not get warm.

I recommend the upgrade...

even with standard oem bulbs...
the light harness will offer more light output (noticeable)
just due to it's better efficiency and lower resistance.
