man those people on HIDplanet are so rich though, I swear but there isn't a single ranger conversion thats complete... I dunno what I'm gonna do I've kinda talked myself out of it, even my friends say 150 bucks is too much to pay for the same halogen output with a lil blue... I gotta agree that is too much money, but hey we'll see

So, could these headlights be used for HID's? They are projector headlights, im not sure what makes projector headlights different/better than regular. I plan on getting them real soon though.

^They use a different beam pattern, more of a "flat line" dispersing light evenly and not 'blarring' it out at opposing traffic like HID's w/ OEM reflector housings would

i had those projector headlights mark posted, and they were worth the money. had a decent cut off, and gave a good bit of light. never used the halogen bulb after i put in the HID kit. i had pics somewhere.....

yea, had those in black. a few people do. the switch if to run the projector like a foglight, which is what it is used for with the bulb that comes with it. just a normal h3 bulb. put in a h3 HID kit, and wow, what a difference. you can wire the projector to your parking lights so you can run without the factory headlight being on. the only use for the factory reflector housing is to use the high beams.

or I think you can run D2R HID bulbs, they are used in HID reflector housings, but so far where I'm looking they are hard to get a hold of...

you also need a reflector housing made for a HID bulb like the D2R. they are shaped and mirrored different.

hid planets store has a few kits. but im sure you could piece one together from the classfieds on there for cheaper. find a pair of used lights on ebay to use as the project, saves from fuggin up the ones on the truck
