I believe I have it hooked up correctly. The resisters become very hot indicating to me that they ate working? I will check soon .

My lights have a awesome cut off for being on a 01'. Though these are aftermarket E-bay lights so that may have something to do with it, but they are just the plain black housing lights. It's all about aiming them, once I aimed mine they are great. Glad to see this thread back up and running. Hopefully this will provide more info and less smack talk on how illegal they are even though I've never been pulled over for HID's and everyone practically has them now, but anyways glad to see it back.

Best Way I can do this without pictures.

From Facing the front starting with the Left headlight.

Left Headlight Harness>Resistor Harness>Ground Resistor>Unused connector Stays Unpluged

Right Headlight Harness>Resistor Harness>Ground Resistor Harnnes>Connect Unused Connector to Relay Harness to 12V>Relay Ground to Frame>Relay Harness Right Ballast Power to Right Side Ballast>Relay Harness Left Ballast Power to Left Side Ballast.

Now Plug in the HID Bulbs and your done.

People better be thankful I dont do this to my truck lol!

Very easy to do both you need t30 torx for the headlamps and same thing for the foglamps. Turn your wheel to the left to take the right side fender well screws out and bend the fender well out of your way to access them. Repeat process for left side. Good luck!
