You sure the lights are "burning out" and not just lacking a power source? When your battery dies, you will also loose all lights. I would look at the alternator as the problem. Have it checked to make sure it is functioning properly.

but it happens at all different times... I swear ive changed a headlight at least once a month... alternating sides. and my break lights wont work at all even with new ones installed
