Wrecked 6.4

Unfortunately I wrecked my 2010 XLT last night. Was crossing traffic and some how did not see the guy and I ended up T-boning his car and pushing him into the median. Luckily no one was hurt and there weren't any other cars involved. This is a really busy hwy and and the outcome could have been much worse. My truck needs a new front end, hood, head lights, and some how i cracked the radiator cooler a little. The car i hit was a rental car and is probably totaled. All side air bags went off and my tow hooks went into his car and ripped a hole along the entire side of the car.
Now on to getting it fixed. Plan on getting everything fixed as it needs to be besides the headlights. Was curious in putting projection head lights and was wondering if i platinums headlights would work.

Damn man, glad nobody was hurt! As for the headlights, you can't really buy any projection headlights that are of good quality. You'll need to do a hid retrofit if you want a set of true hid projector headlights. Click the link in my

I was nervous too, but really it's quite simple. There's a better method to attaching the projectors to the reflector, instead of using the bolts you use quiksteel. Which saves hours of adjusting the bolts to get the angle right. You can literally have them done in a half day no rushing. So worth it, especially since all the aftermarket projector headlights are absolute sh!t
