Might as well do an HID retrofit while you got them apart

Check out my hid retro fit thread in the 6.0 electronics section. We has another discussion about it in this section during the past few days

thinking about paint matching mine as well and tinting the reflector.. about the order the paint.. but i'm still undecided if i should paint match or do black on the bezel and side vent. i'm leaving the chrome on the side vent.. just the red parts.. i wont do one or the other.. i'll do both the same.. black or paint match the green on my truck now... also thinking about getting an FX4 grill and paint matching it.. i think it would look soo much better.. just dont want to spend the $$ on a new fx4 grille, but i cant find a used one for the life of me
