Can anyone suggest a good source for 5 1/2" DUAL BEAM headlights (Halogen or Sealed Beam)?? :confused: :confused:

Have found plenty of vendors for 5 3/4", 7" and even 5 1/2" single beam (Hi or Lo), but not 5 1/2" Hi/Lo. :pain:

Appreciate any help. :)

Bought a great looking pair of reproduction '41 Willys/'37 Ford headlight assembles. The buckets are for 5 1/2" diameter "lens". :drunk:

Thanx for the NAPA suggestion! :thumbup: I'll try that.

I have been looking at motorcycle sites also. Found a couple - but not really anything that I liked.

I did find a GREAT looking pair on eBay from the UK. They are Halogen and almost exactly what I want at a good price. Only problem is that the shipping is ~ $130.00! :pain: :pain:

Thanx for the help guys!! :cool:

So the real quest is for Cheap 5.5 inch headlamp bulbs?

You've found something you like in England. Find out who the manufacturer is and then contact them for a list of retail outlets for their products IN THE USA.

Great suggestion!!

Only problem is that these particular ones were "military surplus". :pain:

The seller did manage to get the shipping cost down to ~$95.00. Looks like I am going to pass. :nono:

Have been trying to run down some various 5 1/2" motorcycle lamps that may do the job. :drunk:
