    Working on It!
    So I got some new headlights I really like them but I need some help!

    I want to keep my halo's on as running lights, I was wondering if someone knew how to do it. Also when I turn on my lights they make a funny pattern on the wall, I know you can adjust them and I have but what is the best way of adjusting them.

    Below are some pics, two of the headlights and my truck and one showing my funny pattern.

    Please give me input, Thanks!

    Nice title! 57 views, no responses... I'm not completely sure about the halo since I don't have a set but you need to wire the halo to the parking light wire separately if you want them on a separate switch (ie, come on with parking lights). I'm not sure how these are wired so it may require a relay.

    As for the funky shape, it looks like you're headlight alignment is just off.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the only way to get a good factory like cutoff is to do a Retrofit. Here is a pic of mine.

    That angle is a Euro headlight angle to light up the side of the road (signs, shoulder, etc.). The retrofit AzogSS posted in the picture above is a clean angle with excellent coverage while the Halo/Projectors in the first post are WORSE than the factory headlights. Sorry..
