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:

(2002 F-350)

First picture has new HID in left, old yellow crap in right :)

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......

Raul wasn't hatin, so chill, lol.

And I for one love HID's. the only reason I DON'T have them is I haven't had the money to buy 4. (I want Fogs AND headlights when I do mine.)

Like said, Hater's gonna hate. New Cars come with HID's, and I can't tell the difference when looking at them which ones are projectors and which aint. :dunno:

It's all about how/where the beams are aimed. :wink[3]:

Wow man. U did way to much work. The headlights come out with 2 clips on the top side. Would have made your life a whole lot easier.

I have 5 sets on my truck. U can see the quad fog mod on my sig. I love it!

Wow, those are really blue. They look real nice. Looks like 10k to me. I had 6000k on my truck. I liked the really white with a touch of blue look. But one of the ballast started giving me trouble so I took them off. Might put them back on soon and try to figure it out.

Ouch those are painful bud, I would get some 05-07 headlamp housings with small reflector pattern and decent mirrors, those housings/lenses are massive scatterboxes and the glare looks painful. I too feel sorry for oncoming traffic, and think it's just a matter of time before you get pulled over :taze: and get a "fix-it" ticket with those installed!

Can't wait till all LEO's start enforcing the use of these bulbs. I just hope it is before someone gets killed from your blinding them.
