x2Replace them with any of the enclosures that allow you to use H4 bulbs.
... that is exactly how i already wired my truck;And run them off of relays triggered by the switch in the cab.
Well, this ( 7 034 Chrome Round Headlights H4 Conversion Chevy Ford GMC HID Xenon 6K 6000K CB | eBay ) is what I went with. Even with 2nd day delivery it was under $70. For that amount I will chance it to see if they make any improvement. I'll make a follow-up post when they arrive and we get them installed.And run them off of relays triggered by the switch in the cab.
I have 35w 4500K HIDs in my pickup. 4 years and 90 some thousand miles and not one problem from police or others. Incredibly bright, very crisp white light. They have no bluish tint to them like some that instantly make it noticeable that they are aftermarket lights. Iirc 4300k is the temp rating most OEM car's use, less then that can appear yellow, once you get past 5k the higher temps each have more blue tint to them.I am also reading that only using the 6000k units pretty much allows 'one to escape the complaining LEOs as they are not as "blinding". Any truth in this?
Where were all you guys yesterday with this advice before I purchased them?? :shaking:Don't drop HID bulbs into reflector housings that are not meant for them. It's the wrong solution all around; HIDs generate light differently (all over the bulb, not just at the filament) and need a projector lense to put that light where it belongs.
Check out the photos in the link I posted above.Where were all you guys yesterday with this advice before I purchased them?? :shaking:
Since they are bought, shipped, and I have the tracking number, I will just go with them and at least give them a try. Almost every weekend I am driving home from the races after midnite, ...and on 2-lane backroads, I cannot help but think that these will be better than what I have even if I need to buy smaller bulbs. I guess I'll judge the success by how many on-coming drivers flash their lights at me.
I do agree it HAS been posted many times here ...and everywhere else too. Some sites complain about them & other sites praise them.It's been posted many times before...
