    So i just put some HID's in... Man is it nice to have..:)
    I'll take some pictures tonight, I did have to dis able my day time running lights in order to have everything work properly. To do so you have to go under the driver dash and you'll find a black box that says day time running light control. Unplug it and turn the plug clock wise and you'll see a white wire with a neon green strip. once you find it you have the option to cut it or
    pull the wire out of the socket that way you can put it back in if you were to sell your truck or something



    If anyone is wanting some i can get the hi/lo H4 for about 170 a set. 6000k and 8000k

    You replaced your headlights? Do you worry that the low beam is too bright for oncoming traffic?

    Thanks

    No the BI lights have a cut off point that works the same as the stock head lights. Other wise you have to have projectors.

    im wondering did the same thing happen to you? if you dont disable the dtrl only one light will work unless you turn the lights on.

    I just installed Bi xenon HID's on mine and fog lights too. My DTRL work fine. If you had to disconnect yours I think you may have done something wrong.
