Will do man! I'm not either though so it will be a mission. Maybe let's just swap headlights haha

Lol yeah, oh there is one thing you might want to check that I forgot to mention. I'm not to sure what it is called, but there is a tab that you are suppose to plug in and you have to flip the two prongs opposite of what they were or so one is on each side. I'm sure I just confused you but I had issues with some lights not working or nothing at all would work, and I just readjusted those prongs on the tab that you plug into the new headlights.

You're talking about the plug for the halos and LEDs. If it was reversed, all off the LEDs would be out. Not just 2 of the 4. The halos don't care about polarity but LEDs do

So say if I unplugged that would only the halos be on or do the halos run off the same plug as the LEDS do?

Once I find more time, probably going to get the new inverters and have a hay day with them and do some experimenting and hope to not mess anything up haha.
