Got all my stuff last night! Thanks, packing job was great!!

Although, I was dry fitting things last night and a clip came off the shroud... I think it will be okay though. There are 4 other clips and i might add some glue. Also, I was putting the clip that powers the light on and one of the tabs broke off the light. I was being very careful and it still broke, not happy :'(. It still seems to hold okay though.

I have a couple of questions regarding the halos. How to you attach them to the shroud? just silicone? Also, how do you hide the wires that come out of it? Lastly, I would like to know how you wire the halos independently. the kit comes with a splitter to feed the halos with power, but how do you wire them up to a separate switch.

Thanks for your help.

They do have a very light amber tint that doesn't show in the picture.
My Nikon L810 has horrible color balance.

Got mine mostly installed, also did the BHLM. Just have to finish wiring everything (halo's and high beams) clean up the wiring and then reseal the lights. I've been working on this for 2 sundays and a couple of nights after work during the week. so far pretty easy to follow, although I fucked up a few times when taking the adjustment screws out. oops.

Pics to follow when I finish. I'm hoping to wrap things up on saturday.

Ok, so i am home now and i was looking at my kit. I installed the fog lights and they look amazing! They are so much brighter than my headlights, its crazy bright.( yes i did the easy ones first. Anyway i was looking at my headlight kit and was wondering why i have two harness with 2 ballast and 2 battery wires on each harness when i only have one headlight to mod on each side? Cant seem to find any definitive answer on this, not even on youtube. Will i not be using one?

Did the fog lights use a harness? If not, that would be my guess as to where it goes.

Exclamation Warranty issue

Okay, I've got a problem now. I first installed my lights with no issues, used all wiring that came with the kit.



I took it out for one drive and now one halo is dimmer than the other. (Drivers side is dimmer)



I haven't had a lot of time to deal with this and my truck is not insured so I rarely drive it. My first thought was that maybe the voltage regulator is fried.
Last night I took the head lights off and swapped the regulators, bam i did this and now the other light is dim, indicating to me that the regulator is fried. I then took in appart to see what was inside and again found the fired regulator.





It's hard to in this photo, but one of the pieces looks cooked and half is coming off the board.

So, my question is since I bought them here on the group by how do I do about warrantying this? I have a trip coming up on May 17th and I would really like to have my truck back together and working for that.
