    Gonna have to sit out this one, super slammed at work this week and likely staying late tonight, then I've got to do laundry before Big Bear this weekend. I'm actually half expecting that I may be called into work on Saturday so we'll see :(

    About a week ago, both of them weren't working but I saw that the ground had popped off like you said, so I reattached it and all was good...but now the passenger side one is coming on fine, but not the driver's side. Ground is still connected so I'm guessing it's something with the driver's side wiring setup, I'm terrible with anything electronic related lol. Haven't had time to troubleshoot it much but hopefully this weekend someone can help me out at BB

    On the 2nd gens maybe for the 1st gens too?
    Check the fuses they are on different connections so you'll have at least one headlight on.

    The Hellas aren't wired to my headlights, we wired them up independently

    But I do believe you're right about the headlights being on different connections with the first gen

    How'd you wire up the hellas? I'm about to gain 4 of them off that bumper I'm buying tonight, is there a harness I can buy or did you make your own?

    The wiring harness came with the Hellas.

    @Thesandaddict was kind enough to hook them up for me, it was a lengthy process haha. Wiring confuses the hell out of me, but we wired them down through the inside of the driver's side door, through the engine bay and to the battery, then back through the dash for the switch.

    Wow you guys got complicated, I went through my firewall at the same spot that all the other wires went through. Wasn't too hard after we taped the wires to a bent clothes hanger to shove it through

    Yeah with roof mounted lights you have to get a little creative with the wiring

    Thanks Nick! Yeah I'm planning to set it up thread tonight/this weekend. Just kind of busy getting ready for big bear. It's going to be at Ocotillo Holmes campground like you guys recommended. Did some research on it and it's a great location. I got some maps and info on site seeing shit that will be posted in OP. I'm looking forward to checking out Devils Slide, Pumpkin Patch, and Blowsand Hill.

    Awesome man! Pumpkin Patch was cool, not sure if I saw Blowsand Hill. You should look up imagines of The Wind Caves over in Anza Borrego, we all should definately go check that out again

    Hey just thought I'd throw this out there. If anyone is looking for side work I do general mechanic work on the side and would like an extra set of hands some times. Most of it is really easy. Lemme know
