Arrow 2017 Bounder 33C replacement headlight bulbs

Ok...I've searched the forums and can't seem to find any info about later model Bounder's regarding the replacement of headlight bulbs to improve night time visibility. My 2017 Bounder has a projector low beam and a halogen high beam. I'm thinking that if LED bulbs would work, that would be the easiest way to gain some brighter light down the road. My projection low beams are just too dim and they've been like that since the day we bought the Bounder brand new.

The only pictures and instructions I've seen for replacing the bulbs have been an easy removal of the bulb by twisting it counter-clockwise, but I do not even see the back of the bulbs under my Bounder. There a complex looking plastic housing.

So, my question is for anyone with later model Bounders, how you replaced the bulbs, how do you access the bulbs, and maybe a photo of the back of the headlight housing showing how to access the bulbs. If someone can give me some insight into the removal of the low and high beam bulbs on a 2017 Bounder, that would be the most help.

Otherwise, if replacing the bulbs with LEDs isn't the way to go, I guess I would consider adding a pair of driving lights.

Thanks for any advice.
Thanks...David

Ok....found that removing the bulbs was actually easy. The only question now, is do I replace both the projector low beam bulb and the high beam bulb with LED replacements? The high beams seem to already be pretty bright, but the low beams really need some help.

I replaced both low beams and Highs with LEDs. Huge improvement in night driving.

UPDATE

Just a quick update. I replaced the low beams with H-11 LEDs and the high beams with 9005 LEDs. After properly aiming the lights, all I can say is WOW! If you do ANY driving at night, and find that your current headlights don't provide enough light. I highly recommend replacing them with LEDs. Not affiliated, but got mine from M4Products.com
