Do Anyone Know The Headlight size

Good Day Everyone

I have called several Blue Bird Mechanics and they have tried to be accommodating however they couldnít tell me the proper size of the headlight.

The reason I am enquiring, I have a blown low beam headlight and I want to change them with a set of LOW VOLTAGE LED PROJECTOR HEADLIGHT WITH WHITE AUXILIARY ANGEL RING-HIGH/LOW BEAM.

HTTPS://THECHROMECONNECTION.COM/COLL.../HEADLIGHTS-69

And before anyone can say it, The Bus isnít here with me.
So do ANYONE know they proper size headlight for a 2001 BB All American A3RE?

Are your headlights rectangular or round? If rectangular, are there 2 or 4? Link above doesn't work for me.

Rectangular should be the standard 5"x7" that 80% of american cars and trucks used since forever.

The low beam headlights on that should be an H4656 headlight if it's a four light system. They are 5x7

Also, don't buy LED headlights from any place called "the chrome connection"

The LED headlight market is 99% Chinese garbage and will put poor light on the road while blinding oncoming drivers. If you want cheap and bright, get some Silver Star sealed beam lights.

JW Speaker and Trucklites are reputable LED brands. These are the ones the military is using to retrofit the sealed beam lights on all the old Hummers and various other trucks. They're DOT legal, throw a clean beam pattern, and not cheap.

Thanks for answering! Yes I have a 4 light system I need to change out my light so I decided to go custom.

ive had chinese LED bulbs in my red bus nearly 2 years now.. no usses.. ltos of night / rain / snow / heat / cold. driving and they still shine bright and cost a ton less than trucklite or JW speaker.


I carry a set of incandescent bulbs that fit my housings with me in case of a failure on the road.. but nada thus far..



JW speaker and trucklite are hands down really good lights with good beam patterns..



the chinese ones to avoid are the onbes like in my DEV bus which are square with 2 or 3 rows of individual round LED;s they have terrible beam pattern and spray light all over the oncoming traffic and dont really light up the road that well..
