i have the hella fog and driving light kits on my truck and they came with everything to install and 55w bulbs. i was thinking about putting 150w bulbs in there but didnt know if that would be too much for the relays or anything. im pretty sure the wire is thick enough but didnt know about anything else. what do you guys think? or maybe ill just get the 100w bulbs. thanks

As long as the system is fused and the wires are thick enough you should be fine.

I had those same lights on my last truck with 100 watt bulbs and those were plenty bright enough. I dont know if i would push it with 150 watt bulbs, they may get too hot.

also, i put some 100w bulbs in there the other day that were tinted blue and it seemed like they put out less light than the clear 55w bulbs. i havent had them on much so thats why i asked if they would be too hot, didnt want to burn something up before i asked. maybe the clear 100w bulbs will be enough for me. thanks
