Have you had any trouble with the wiring harness heating up or melting with those H.I.D.s?

Sweeet!
Where did you get these from, and how "ballpark" did it run you? I imagine the night time driving vision is much improved over the stock bulbs and lens.

They look good, I like how they give the light housing a bluish look to them...

No problems yet, a properly designed HID system actually draws LESS current than the conventional halogen lamp. Gotta put my clamp meter around a wire and check the current draw.

HID kit was a Xetronic 9007 hi/lo kit fro buyeruolights.com for 500ish
headlights/corners/signals were from Advanced JDM for 160ish for all 6 pieces.

I still don't have them aimed exactly yet (a little low, pass side needs to go to the right a bit) but Holy S@#$ Batman!! They're not blinding anyone, and the light seems to illuminate reflective signs a couple miles away. After a few hours of highway driving, the light doesn't seem to cause fatigue like squinting through the blackness with halogens used to.

The only thing that sucked is since my truck is for Canadian market, I had to do a little "re-wiring" on the DRL module, since it is not recommended to use HIDs as daytime runners (reduced voltage reduces ballast life.) In the near future, I will be installing some fogs in the outer bumper holes (hopefully my old PIAA 959's) and have them for fog and DRL duty.

Good eye on the marker lights! The one on the driver's side is an experiment with an LED circuit board.
