    I was thinking about upgrading my headlights, since they both need to be replaced after tagging a deer. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations of an off-the-shelf, HID/Projector style headlights? Thanks...

    After which you need to order an H1 HID kit (not H4!):

    Thanks for the info. Would I need to order one of each of the Kensun H1 kits that you posted above?

    I have some projectors.. from ebay.. and yes the cutoff isn't the best and light output is a little less.. do i still love them.. yes! Lol If you like the look, go for it. I sacrificed some light output but gained the look I wanted. After HIDs and some adjusting, they aren't too bad honestly. I am however, going to retro some TRS projectors into them around xmas time. Then ill have my look, and output :D
