HID Lights for Angel eyes?

So on my angel eye headlights the 3 little lights in a line are all HID but the actual light on my headlight and the eyebrow are regular old lamps

From what I gathered ill need a retrofit or something for the angel eyes? I was having a hard time finding exactly what i needed, anyone done this before and know where to go?
Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
J

I think you mean you need led's to replace the ones that burnt out. Right?

Here's a picture

Itd look better if everything was HID in my opinion...so the fog lights should be easy to find. But for the headlights i'm not sure

Those three small lights are not hid...they are led. Those eBay projectors are not very good...at all. Do a proper retrofit and customize your lights how you want. Or have me do it

Yeah I've heard they arent the best...but they came with the truck and I couldnt get stock ones instead.

Yeah led..ha I guess what i meant was I want them all to be the same color.
How much are you charging?

On second thought I could probably do this myself...it's not that tough is it?

And why does the title say "first gen?" Your truck is a 2nd Gen.

1st gen halos.

The look of the angel eyes are growing on me...just the different color of lighting doesnt look good. Thats why im wondering how much it would cost to retrofit them.

I thought about getting stocks but i mean wouldnt it cost about the same to eitehr get those or just retrofit these angel eyes?

I know the output isnt as good..is that really a big deal? They both do the job..
