Plus you should not be running any Lightforce light with oncoming anyways. You should be turning those off before your highbeams cause yes they do reach a long ways out.




pass big time.

Yeah. I asked if they could get one and they ordered it from Big Country for me. I believe it was around $300 and no shipping. It ended up being cheaper going through the dealership because they order steps, brush guards, and those kinds of things from them frequently.

Where did you get the HID conversion items,

I have a new set of 500FF coming in and i want to convert to HID before I install them,

I have installed HID kits in other cars before but I want to keep my standard headlights I have as i have a set of very nice Narva Range Power bulbs, absolutely love em,

I plan on mounting these on hood mounts from Relentless I hope, unless I need to find a way to put them on a small light bar in the front,

I had a kit years back from Xenon Depot, and they basically got absorbed I think by another company,

I know I can find a cheap set on eBay for 40 or less but don't mind spending a little more and knowing I am getting something of better quality.

I got my HID set from DDM tuning. Very easy to do the conversion.

http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DD...ast-35W-or-55W

Converted hella 700ff's to 55w 6k:




Ended up being bluer than I wanted (probably will do my headlights in 55w 5k when I retrofit) but they still are bright as fuck.

i also used DDM tuning kits. I think i have some of the last Raptor style ballasts though. Not any different really just metal cased and way bigger. Wish i had as it would have made wiring a bit easier for my roof rack. but oh well.

Do you guys know if any one ever uses hella 500's hid/non hid for yellow fog/snow lights. It seems like im seeing a lot about the Piaa 510 and 520s with yellow lamps along with the Piaa Ion crystal lamps and nokya lamps to replace factory fog lamps, but not to much about the Hellas. Im thinking about getting an Avid light bar and mounting some low fog lights with yellow lamps for bad weather and some driving lights on top of the avid bar to be able to use on the highways here in CT.
