What kind of headlights are you running in your 62? I have seen the wiring kit from wagongear and others. I have done some searches but not turned anythiing up recent. I saw the IPF lights but the rectangles are only for the older pickups. I am looking for a good clear white headlight for road use and a super bright offroad headlight for a high beam in stock highbeam location. What I am looking for is the rest of the kit, I get the wiring thing (I think) but what housing and bulbs? What is the best? Opinions? :beer:

Sounds like you will be upgrading your wire harness. For your new harness, I would recommend Hella ECE headlights as probably the best bang for the buck. See these threads for more info:

I have 65/70 watt Osram lamps in the H4 headlights. I have 100 watt Narva lamps in the H1 high beams only, but I think 55 watts are nearly as bright, and less stress on the alternator. The problem is, those lamps are really expensive. I would recommend you try the standard lamps that are about $5 each and see how you like them before you drop nearly $100 on the high power stuff.

I have round eyes in my 40 and they are sweet. I don't think they can help me with the 62 though. Keep the thoughts and opinions coming please. Thanks. :beer:

Yes, they can, but contact that Daniel Stern guy first.
