LED headlight and bucket

I have a Sabre 2002, I'm thinking of replacing the headlight bulb with an LED
9003 H4.
Some of you have done this, was the bucket big enough? Or does it require some modification?

Thanks
Guy

I put an Opt-7 in my Phantom, it is very tight but in time it fit. Also put one in an Aero with no trouble.

I put one in my 2002 Sabre. It was about $12 from eBay. Works like a champ, and is much brighter than the standard bulb. I had to modify the rubber boot a bit, but it went in fine.

I`ve got that bulb in my 98 ACE, without fitting issues nor overheating/ventilation problems...
You`ll LOVE the results,

I put a hid bulb in my sabre with a clear lens. I love the results. I thought about going LED but they don't "throw" the light as far as HIDs do.
