Thanks for the warm welcome.

Question. Is it doable to change the halogen highs and fogs to HID? I did is in my f150 and it makes a great difference. I live in deer country right by the lake.
Yes, here is a link to where I buy my fog HIDs (our fogs are H10). I have 6K and 3K...Right now I'm rocking 3ks with yellow laminix film. I'll post a pic later. I haven't converted my highs to HID yet but I am sure you can find what you need from the website below

Hope this helps

It does an amazing job. They are SUPER clear now and I now have great cutoff lines. Can't wait to get some extra money to put 55w 6000k in the highs and 35w 6000k in the fogs.

get some clear lenses from TRS, the cutoff will be even better, and light output a little better. zkw-r lenses, got mine from TRS on their ebay for like 35 bucks.

Well I went to adjust my HIDs now that I have a clear cutoff line. Did the 25 foot distance with a line two inches lower than headlight height.

These things are garbage. I think the projectors are bad or something because there is like no direct light output. It is just all spread out in every which way.




Just to test it I pulled my truck out of the garage and did the same test. Keep in mind is truck is a 4x4 with a level and is on 35s. But it has eBay projectors and 6000k 35w bulbs.



Look how much more projected the light is directly in front of the vehicle. Is there a fix for this?
