My '86 5KCSTQ has running lights inboard and integral with the
headlights. There are double lenses which reduce the light output
substantially, but you can run around at dusk with these things. I guess
they are not very well aimed either, and with anything more than about
10-12 watts, you will blind oncoming traffic. I have bulbs in there with
a little more wattage than stock, and I get flashed all the time. But,
they look so yellow compared to the headlights! I really want to build
some really nice headlights!
As another point of reference, I saw the headlights from a '91
200TQ last week, and they are identical to mine.
