I'm heading to the dunes in a few weeks and lost my stock headlight recently, So i've been thinkin bout doin the same thing. Whats this regulator that you guys are talking about.... i'm not much of an electrical whiz!
its the a.c. voltage regulator that came stock. it's located under the hood in the general area of the stearing stem. it'll have a w/y and green wire coming from it. it's easily recognized by the air cooling fins on it. and is a must if you are to run lights.
