Actually, Because they are a dual bulb unit the spacing of each bulb the give you a true high low beam and no aiming required. everything you see in my photos were stock.

I have driven by accident with my highs on and no flashing. The highs actually aim a little high and the lows are a little low.

I think i just figured it out, if the bult came out of the housing a quarter of an inch it would adjust the beam battern. but would need to cnc an adapter.

Would it make the much of a difference? If so CNC me some! Haha.

I have video and pictures copying to my computer as I type this. I have to edit them then post.

EDIT: Still waiting. Big video files. I'll shrink them down for easy viewing.

I'm encoding the file now. Should be about 15 mb. I'll put it on my Photobucket or Youtube. Probably the second.

Video doesn't really show how bright they are. I was going to use my actual video camera but the batteries were dead so I used my digital camera instead.

OHHHH!!! AWESOME!!! THANKKKKKSSS!!!!!




I can tell the flipping between high and low...but the camera can't pick up on the distance of being in high beam. Take a look at the trees on the right hand side of the road...lightin' 'em up! Thanks soooo much for posting a vid. Do you always drive the truck like that? If you do, i respect you and love that you tell her who's boss!! lol.

I don't always drive the truck like that, but I figured I'm taking a video, I might as well get on it! I charged the battery on my actual video camera last night so maybe if I go somewhere tonight I'll take it along and see how it does with the night time shooting.

I run 6000k and so far it seems to light everything up nicely. Through blizzard conditions it works relatively well and clear night are awesome. I need to take a video of this road I drive down every once in a while. 100ft pine trees on each side for about 3 miles. You can really get a good idea of light output on the highs.

cool vid, but like previously mentioned, the camera doesnt pick up the distance of the high beams very well. if the video camera shows it better, i might just have to pick up a set of these. im tired of no high beams lol

And did you turn them clockwise of counter-clockwise 90 degrees?

Do both lamps burn in High Beam?

2500k for my fogs and 8000k for my headlights.
