Just installed an HID kit. Here are the results :)

So my buddy gave me a brand new HID kit he never got around to installing on his powerstroke and I decided to give it a go today. The entire install took no more than an hour and the hardest part was removing both batteries and the airbox on the drivers side.

For future reference for any of you doing this mod, my kit had two wires Black and Red. Black goes in the middle and the red goes on the right if you want the lights as low beams and the left if you want them as high beams. (tab on the plug on top.) I just guessed around until I found this combo...

My kit says it is a 8000k and is the perfect mix of white and blue in my opinion. I chose to simply mount the drivers side on the plastic battery/airbox shroud and the passenger side on the fender. I used 3M mounting tape and they aren't going anywhere!

Here are the results:

Yea, I second that! ^^^^

Throwing those things into your stock housings is a terrible idea, the scattered mess it throws is So Far from what they could be doing with the proper reflector

I did the same thing in my '02, I was a Menace to other drivers......

There is no good mix of white and blue. Blue is horrid to look at if you're oncoming traffic.

i would hard mount the ballasts... trust me the glue on the tape will start to give a way with the heat of the engine bay.

i didnt think mine was being an *** whole... just giving you some friendly advice about teh ballasts.. i have done a lot of HID retrofits and they eventually all unstick because of the heat in the engine bay.. so now i just hard mount all of them.. if it unsticks it will be bouncing around and you will ruin the ballast
