HID Installed

So I can finally see again. Got some HID's installed today. They turned out great. This was a really simple and straight forward install. Simply remove the grill, unscrew the torx scrrews from the headlights, disconnect the harness, remove the light and install the HID, route the wiring to the ballast and reinstall the headlight and grill. Vast improvement over my stock lights. Enjoy!

Have you noticed people flashing you (not in the good way)? I installed DDM 55w on mine and got flashed like crazy so I had to aim the lights down a lot. Still a hell of a lot better than stock, but i lost a lot of light having to aim them down so much.
I have the same lights in my GMC and didnt have to adjust a thing so i guess its just the housing.
I also havent gotten the high light "flicker" taken care of yet.

Went with opt7 I got on ebay. They turned out good, but the plugs can back out. I found that out this morning. I'm reinstalling the drivers one today to see if that helps. The seller has a good rating and the cost was low. I'll get some more pics up in about an hour.

Ok an update. I got ready to leave for work had to come back to the house and get something. It was then I realized that the driver light was blown. This afternoon I ran through troubleshooting to isolate the fault. This was easy to do since I just had to transfer components from one side to the other. I determined the culprit to be a blown light. Contacted the seller and a replacement is on its way as of today so I should be back up and running by Monday.

i hope these work out for you. I installed hid's on my jeep and my wifes jeep at the same time. Hers is fine, people don't flash their lights and they a throw a decent pattern. Mine on the other hand throw a horrible pattern and unless aimed directly at the ground shine right in peoples windshields. So i went back to stock bulbs

Mine had a strange pattern when I put them in, but I know how to adjust the headlight so this time I will play with it until I get it right. I cant wait to get them back on.
