    Let me know if you have any questions. Did you get Bi-xenon headlight bulbs? They are great, but they do require more wiring than the single xenon Low beam bulbs.

    Did you guys order just headlights or did you do the fogs too? The fogs are real easy to install. The kit comes with an extra wiring harness. Cut it out of the grommet and don't use it. The stock fog wiring will plug right into the HID ballast.

    I got the high/low for the headlights only. I'm leaving the fog lights as they are because I'll be running 6 LightForce lights up front. HIDs in the fogs might be a little overkill. :rolleyes:

    HIDs in the fogs are awesome.

    I got the Bi-xenons also. I debated on the fogs for a second, but thought they would be too much. Should I have opted for the wiring harness for the Bi-xenons?

    PB, I'm curious if you are blinding people, because the reflectors weren't designed for HID lamps.

    Do you have any pictures of the light pattern? What about a review?

    you will blind people with any type of hid pnp kit, unless you get it retrofitted with some projectors.

    lightwerkz.net is an expensive way to go, but check out their projector retrofits. I'm just saving up some money, and looking for an OEM set of headlights to send him. I'd LOVE to have em on my taco!

    I installed the pnp kit in my truck and yes, it's VERY blinding. The guys in the shop are mostly into Corvettes and I mentioned to them that I'd have to focus the beams down a bit to avoid blinding the car folks. Their response was pretty simple: "Keep 'em where they are. Seriously, you need to be able to see, and there's a reason why both the rearview mirror and middle finger can flip. Leave 'em."

    Of course, it does nothing for oncoming traffic but I loved the comment. :D

    One of the easiest installs I've done. The only time consuming part was running the wires nice and neat. 100% plug-n-play. I've only had a few cars bright me.
