Has anyone attempted to replace their docking lights?
I have a 2007 Supra ssv24 and I do not have room on my tower for forward faceing lights, wondering if anyone makes a hid or brighter lights for them.. They are very dim...

Another thing, anyone know if anyone makes single tower lights, maybe I can squeeze 1 between and 1 on each side of a pair of pro 485s facing the rear... I do not have the z-cargo rack so i can't put them on top of the tower...

Most of the new docking light are LED.
Here is an example of one on the market, I am sure that there are plenty more.

I have an 07 22SSV. Here is a pic of my old light setup ( amber lenses to cut down on bugs). I've since switched to all true HID lights.

You can failry easily replace the bulb in the factory lights ( under hte bow) with an HID bulb....it should fit. May take some trial/error. The HID bubls are tradtiionally a tad longer.You'll haev to mount the external ballast ( not a big deal) but you'll get much more light.

I live on a lake, my tower lights are priceless to me.

My lights are these, and I can tell by looking in there, it is for sure an HID-style bulb in there.

these are the lights you need. Make sure you get the lights and the ballast. they are a direct replacement.

OUCH ... $$$ -- has anyone tried the LED lights? Are they any brighter than the stock bulbs I have?

I don't use these enough personally right now to justify this cost, but thanks for the pointer. I have other things higher in the
"bling/upgrade" list to spend money on first.

Any HID or LED lights worth upgrading too are gonna cost $$$$. $200/pr is cheap for HID's. Bright LED's are ridiculously expensive. check out xvission xmitter lights ( bright LED's.)

the ones from superbright you have listed will not work. You woudl prolly get more light from a bic lighter.
