I always thought I saw it in the owner's manual. Mine is out in the truck
right now, I'll look at it later when I go outside, but I am sure it is
there. I will post it if I am right.

Howdy! I am new to this list and so am hoping I don't tread on anyone's
toes here... ;-) (I have an '83 Ranger V6 4x4 as a daily driver.)
Just jumping right in here and voicing my opinion/experience with the
'blue' conversion headlight bulbs... :-)
A dealer/friend gave me a pair to try out and report on to him. I put
them in one night and gave them back to him the next day. Maybe it's just
- -my- eyes; but, these were undoubtedly the WORST lights I have ever used,
and that includes the old tungsten sealed-beams!
The 'blue' tinted light just kinda disappears into the dark -gray/black-
night. The black pavement and gray/green grass and trees just seem to
kindof absorb it.
After thinking about it for a bit, I came to the conclusion that it was
because the 'blue' light was on the same side of the spectrum as the stuff
it was supposed to be illuminating (i.e. gray/black "night", green grass
and trees, gray tree trunks, black asphalt, etc).
Not being a lighting engineer, I could be way off, but it sounds reason-
able to me. ;-)
I prefer European halogen headlight conversions (my Ranger has the old
rectangular lights and I put Hella conversion units in 'em), with amber
foglights as auxilaries for extra depth perception.
Just my humble 2-cents... :-) Ed in NC
