maybe you can still put a standard bulb in there??
A true projector does NOT have to be both highs and lows. If a projector have both highs and lows, it's called a Bi-Xenon
The small round thing in the corner is the projector. It is meant to be used as your main low
beam. I guess some people might put, say, HIDs into that place, giving you a very good way to hook up HIDs to a truck. THe big round thing is for the high
beam. You can put whatever bulb in there.
Now, our truck has the hi/low in one bulb, so one would need to buy a splitter, that splits the hi
signals from each other, so that while say, the projector HIDs are on, the high beams can come on to light up what we need to see.
Um... now this brings forth the question on where do we put the turn signals? Well... since this is for the 97 (that generation) truck, you can use the normal turn signals and not worry about it. For us 01-05 trucks (if they made this same housing for us), we would have to route the turn signal into the corner housing. Meaning, we have to make the whole bigger for the corner housing, use 3194
bulbs instead of the puny 194
bulb. How what would we do with the 194 bulb? Whatever you want
