Default LF: Lightbulbs guide

Hi,

I recently acquired a JDM RZ and wondering if it uses different lightbulbs than USDM. Really appreciate if anyone can some knowledge about this. Any complete lightbulbs guide out there other than the Sylvania:

OSRAM SYLVANIA - Replacement Guide - Start

Thanks in advance,

Maverick

I found this info with a couple of web searches:
The correct bulbs for the J-spec plastic headlights (early and late model) are:

Low = 9006J
High = 9005J

The J variant of the bulbs are a different fit to the standard 9006/HB4 and 9005/HB3 bulbs. The 9005/HB3 bulbs will fit in place of the 9005J, but the 9006/HB4 bulb will not fit in the low beam (the diameter of the body of the bulb is too big). As an alternative you can use a 9005/HB3 bulbs in the low beam as well (note you will need to trim a rib on the connection with the harness so that they will fit, very easy to do), ie

Low = 9005HB3
High = 9005/HB3

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.

pwpanas, THANKS, you are great! This is a very useful information.

I am not particularly looking to replace anything. However, I do want to go over all the bulbs as the JDM ones in general may have lower outputs. (learned it from previous R32) So I want to update them to USDM standards or maybe LEDs too. Regardless, it's a 15 years car and I'd love to freshen it up and keep it mint. Little projects for the winter anyway.

Thanks again,

Maverick
