Matching lights

I want to upgrade the lights on my 2000 f250 by installing a light bar in the fog light hole. Im still running the stock headlights that throw the yellow daylight looking light, I want to match them to the LED light bar. Any suggestions// pictures of what after market brand headlights are working for people? With the after market euro or projector style lights what have people done about the orange running lights and turn signal lights that are around the stock light? What does it take to go HID? Also looking at maybe just upgrading to the 2005 Headlights, what does that take and where can I get them?

i did HID projectors. i like the light output and it is controlled. most LEDs are 6k in color, so just get HIDs with 6k and they will be the same.

here is my light bar, i just got it installed

Nice. that's the look that I am looking for. What brand/model are those headlights? How hard was the conversion to HID? Did you upgrade your taillights to match?

Do you have a link for those lights? I went to the CT performance web site..... I think it was the right one. But there are so many options and they are not organized very well and I cannot find them. I was also looking at some of your pictures and saw that you have some factory looking AUX switches mounted in the little cubby hole to the left of the radio, did the truck come with those or did you install them? They look good.

CTs site sucks. i pm'd him on here and ended up calling him. the switches are 05+ upfitter switches. i changed out the lower dash so that i could add them in. i just finished putting LED backups on but didn't get a chance to take any pics

Do you remember what model head lights they are? I really like those more then the ones with the 2 circle looking things inside of them. Where did you find the lifter switches and the lower dash replacement parts? The look really clean like that. I just added some back up lights too but I linked them with the stock back up lights in the tail lights. Just to make sure were talking about the same CT Performance, your not talking about CT Performance INC right? Do you know his name on here so that I can PM him?

his name is Cary, his email is ctperformanceinc@yahoo.com
his screen name on here is ct performance
give him a call or pm him
i got the 55w digital projectors. they come as a complete kit with the projectors already installed in clear headlight housings. i got 5k(cary said it is the brightest light) which i like but would probably do 6k if i had it to do over just so it would match my LEDs
