    Im thinking about getting some HID's on my '04 but my main concern is that they wont be at the same angle as the stock ones (this is what i have been told) i really don't like the idea of blinding people

    Soooo, what's your question? And your concern is justified, you'll probably need to re-aim your lights after you install them.

    You adjust them the way you would adjust them with regular halogen bulbs.

    There are little adjustment knobs or what not that adjust the beam. Its on the back of the headlight. They should be ok though if you put them in. Only reason you should have to adjust is if you lift ur truck.

    its not a hard install. I did mine with no prior experience. Hell, i just zip tied my ballasts really good. I was too lazy to mount them. Still in the same position so far.
