    You're fine, I have a 1993 Pickup, still takes H4 style lights. I'm taking the D2S mini projectors I bought for my 2012 Tacoma and installing them in my 93 Pickup instead :cool:

    They come in a "kit".
    This is an example of what my cart looked like for you so you can see:

    Ballasts: Denso Slim (35w) [will be under your hood/attached to light]
    Bulbs: Philips 85122 + D2S [simply what bulb inside the projector]
    Halos: No Thanks [fancy light ring thing, I opted out]
    Projectors: LHD (NAS) [Left-hand drive, signs on right]
    Resealing glue: Yes Please [to reseal light after taken apart]
    Shrouds: Apollo [ring around/in front of projector for cosmetics]
    Harness: H4/9003 [you have H4/9003 bulb size]

    Hope that helps

    The kit is 295 minus 25% (73.75) so that equals about $221.25. That is really cheap considering the quality of what you are getting IMO.

    Ya it is an amazing price, but I did not want to spend that much. Do you have to put HID's in there or can i just buy the lenses and put a hlogen h4 in there?

    It's an HID projector for an HID bulb.

    I would either just run halogens or do a full retrofit. Nothing in-between as you won't be satisfied (neither will oncoming drivers).

    I don't even bother retrofitting my cars since I don't keep them long enough to use the lights worth their full cost. :p

    :laugh: I am normally the same way. I love this truck though, definitely going to keep it for a while. Only way I'd get rid of it is to trade it in on a 4x4 which I'll just keep these retrofitted ones and put the stockers back in for the sale.
