Just wondering what kind of bulbs does the light bar take? The dealer wants $14 (CAD) for each bulb and looking for a better alternative. I remember seeing a thread on replacing the lamps with a high output bulb, can anyone tell me what kind they were?

Thanks

I know what you mean. I was curious to find out how much the bulbs cost too and Kragens wanted $11 for one teeny weeny bulb. But luckly, you can get 4 similar bulbs for way less. I believe someone said 168s will fit perfectly, but I've gotten 194s to fit if I file down the narrow side edges of the base on the bulb.

The 194 is a 2 watt bulb and the 168 is a 3 watt. Depends on how bright you want it to be. I filed down and used the 168 bulb on mine. The I bought some jell caps and turned my light bar green to match my car color. Don't get screwed by your dealer or other stores! The 168s work fine.
