I have a stock hood with a 17w t8 fixture in it.
I went to home depot and bought a 2 foot 2 bulb t5no strip light for 25$. All you have to do is unscrew the reflector and shave down the bulb mount screws and tap the body of the strip light and it will fit into the stock housing, wired to the switch, and fit on the hood. I had it all wired, and was about to tap the housing, but I didn't get answers so I took it back. I think I'll try out the stock t8 for a bit, and maybe do tue retrofit later of i want more light.
