Icon3 2003 Halo HID Projector Headlights ??

My stock headlight adjusters are broken, and there starting to fog up, just like my old ranger ( 2002). Does anyone know where you can pick up Halo HID projector headlights for a 2003 ranger? The whole headlight, not just a HID kit.

I don't believe anyone makes those kinds of headlights for the 01 and up Rangers.

I've got 6000k's in my heads right now... Love em.

I was running those heads with 30,000k fogs for a bit and turned all heads and surprisingly the pink wasn't too bad in the snow... I did however put my 3,000k's back in and like them better for lighting... Still turns heads lol

6000k will be fine for snow driving, 6k is roughly what most domestic OEM HID temps are, Euro/Import use 4300-5000k temp HIDs. Any where from 4300-6000k is optimal for winter driving, I love my 4300k.

If you buy headlights from ebay, like the black ones, do they come adjusted? so you just install them, or do you have to adjust them?

Those will replace the existing bulbs in your existing headlights. It will do nothing to fix your broken adjusters and worn out lenses.

you WILL NOT be able to find projectors without making them on your own, or having someone make them for you. I am selling the kit to do this. People have tried looking on ebay, over, and over, and over, and over...

heres the kit i put in my truck:

http://www.therpmstore.com/product_i...products_id=38

i had gotten a 55w kit for my saab and the quality and service from this site was great, and their price is good as well so i ordered a 35w set for the ranger. went with 6000k and they look fine with the stock 2003 housing.

But the new headlights from ebay, Do they come adjusted so you just snap the bulbs in and snap them in your truck and there good to go? Or need to be taken to Ford for adjustment?

You adjust them yourself. There is a screw sticking up behind the mounts that you turn to adjust them up and down. You don't take it to a dealer for that.
