The Xentec's don't usually come with the brackets. No biggie. Double sided stick tape and zip ties ftw!

I have a spare set of HID's and spare set of bulbs for that spare set setting in my room... With 2 relay kits, which you should buy soon!

The Xentec's are known for the flicker problem... $20 relay kit fixes all!

Good God man, STOP driving your Ranger right NOW and READ the owners manual and get a Haynes book ASAP!!!

That "black box" you speak of is your air filter box. Undo the clip ring and you'll see the black housing slides off to expose the filter. Personally I'd quit upgrading the truck you know little about and start to read up on it. Back to basics my friend.

Ahhhh, gotcha. Just when you responded to this pic, I thought you were talking about the only black visible item in the picture.

Thank God it wasn't. I was about to smack you around if you didn't know what your air filter was. Nevermind then....back to modding.

Try $7000. And that's not even really any mods. That's just repairs.
