Question Need help with new headlights. Do I need to buy bulbs?

Hi, I've never changed headlights before and I just ordered these headlights.

my current headlights are these

The back of the current headlights look like this http://d3d71ba2asa5oz.cloudfront.net...09-hl-c__2.jpg

And the new ones will look like this http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzgwWDc4MA...VQF9N/$_12.JPG

Am I going to need to buy any bulbs for the new headlights?

When ever I have purchased head lights or tail lights from ebay, they always have come with the bulbs.

On the off chance they don't, it looks like you are going from a Recon head light to a OEM FX4 halogen head right? If yes then its just what ever OEM bulbs are missing, which your local Autozone, Kraggens, O'reily, or any other automotive store should carry them.

If you want higher output halogens I would check out PIAA, or Sylvania Silver Star replacement bulbs. Stay away from "HID" kits from ebay. They will burn out your housings and blind oncoming drivers on the roads.

Hope this helps
-Eric

EDIT: Just read the whole ebay action. Bulbs will not come with the auction you linked. But it does say it takes stock bulbs. IE the standard H13 bulb I believe.

thank you for the info. I get confused with all of this as I've never had to change any headlights.
