picked mine up from the post office after work and installed them. excellent kit the packaging alone was well put together and nice everything went together easily and the lights are amazing. they light up the whole road and dont blind people either so thats a big plus.

heres a pic after the install 6k bi-xenon heads and 3k fogs the heads look bluer in the picture than they really are.

i just did mine tonight there easy to get to and they just twist and pull out theres no weather boot that goes around them. i zip tied my ballast and transformer to the bottom side off the truck right under where the windsheild washer fluid is on the passenger side and under the battery on the driver side they came out good and the wiring is neat. for the cable that runs across the radiator i drilled 3 small holes in the plastic cover that goes across the top of the rad and zip tied the cable to the underside i can take pics to better show what im talking about but it came out nice and clean looking.

I got my heads installed tonight. Had some trouble with that damn clip that holds the light in. Not even sure if I got it all set right. I'll take a picture later but they are not even. One side does not have a defined cutoff like the other side.
It was a bitch getting it all set right because the boot was in the way.

Anyway, I got out and tested them tonight and they are awesome. Really light it up! Can't wait to get my fogs installed too.

I'm also ordering LED's for some of my lights too (3rd brake, license plate and maybe even the side markers). It will give the whole exterior that 'pure white / slightly blue' look.

My apologies I had a couple boxes in my trucks back seat that weren't dropped off at the post office with all the other boxes. You should have them any day they were delivered only a day later than all the others.

Just got the Heads installed and they look fine in the day time, will know the results tonight when I go to work. Will have to wait till tomorrow evening to put in the fogs.
For those of you having troubles I used CableTec's install guide HERE (it's is a posted Sticky) and it worked wonders. Thanks to Slim for the deal and CableTec for the know how.

Wow...me and that little freaking clip that hold the lights in the housing went at it last night. I finally won in the 9th round but it was neck and neck for a while. It came loose upon my initial install and that's why my lights were not even (as I mentioned above). I'll double check them tonight but I think they are sitting properly now.



Does anyone else notice these lights take about 10 seconds to reach their full potential? They start out rather dim and slowly build up to the insanely bright lights they are. Is that a weak battery or does everyone experience this?

This is a trait of all HID lights. They all have to warm up upon start up.
