EDIT: i've never had to wire headlights before so im not gonna be the best person to consult you on that, but those other threads were fairly straightforward on what to do, so maybe pm one of them.

cool yea i looking over them now, yea the turn signals work just like the stock ones so thats good.. yea i assumed the led's would be plug and play too, i posted a pic of the back where the led plug is at, so i dunno lol

by turn signals i meant are they the same ones that were used in your old housing? The leds/halos arent really plug and play because they dont have anything to "plug" into. Where the headlights/turn signals theres an connector that has wires to sends power and to sends the signal (to turn on/blink). What most people do, and ill end up doing so its a lot easier, is to hack into that parking signal connector, and connect the wires to send the power. That little red tab i cant tell if thats supposed to plug into something else, which might have pigtail wires coming off the end (used to splice into parking lot wires) or if the red tab comes off and those are your wires. hope that helps you understand it a little bit better.

oh ok i see what you're saying, i'll have to double check on the turn signal bulbs they appeared to be the same but i didn't pull them out to double check

When I put the LEDs in my headlights I tapped into the parking lights to power them.
