Has anyone replaced a stock head light lamp bulb with a LED?

What LED Bulb should I get?

Do I need a conversion or adapter kit?

Will it all fit in the Head Light enclosure?

Thanks

I replaced the dead lights with LED's and now I want to do the headlight too.

It's an AC lighting setup, so you'd need to run a rectifier on the yellow wire to avoid blowing the LED bulbs. That being said, the reflector in your headlight is not focused for an LED drop in bulb, and all you'll do is dazzle/blind oncoming drivers while also not projecting a headlight beam as far as your stock halogen. It'll look brighter, but it'll be a brighter flood that doesn't go as far.

I'd look into a brighter 35/35 bulb option first, but that's just me.
