Question about installing hi/lo hid kit (1st gen)

Ok I just got my slim ballast ddm kit and was looking for a guide to install the kit for the 1st gen tacoma. I can figure the directions out even though they seem shitty. I don't want to mess anything up so a little direction would be great.

Uhhh it's pretty straight forward. Take out stock bulb, put in the new ones. all of the connections go into each other, can't really plug in something wrong. Plug in the relay harness into the factory headlight bulb harness. Hook up the ground wire to the body or negative terminal of battery. Once all done, hook up positive wire to positive terminal of battery.

Yeah, its' pretty straightforward. Like Viet said, you can't plug in something wrong, it's pretty obvious how it should be connected.

Then why didn't you specifically ask that in your original post?

Where ever they will stay as dry as they can be, away from heat, and not flopping around.
