Icon10 HID's and LED's - New headlights and taillights - lotsa PICS!

This Christmas Santa brought me...

New Corners
New Headlights
New taillights
LED taillight bulbs

I have had 6000K HID's in my highbeams/lowbeams and foglights since August so these are not new. I bought the Bi-xenon kit and a H10 for the fogs. I LOVE them. They look better in these new headlights however. Keep in mind I have adjusted my headlights down so they do not glare at other drivers as much. If you install HID's like I did plan on doing the same thing because HID's have a wider beam pattern than crappy halogen lights. I will NEVER have halogen lights on any vehicle I own again.

Here is a good pic of the new headlights and corners...sorry the truck is just a tiny bit dirty. Its been crappy lately in Chicago...

Here is a picture of the new tail lights - These are aftermarket tail lights for a 1993-2000 ranger, and my truck is a 2004 - I had to rewire a few things but it was really easy to modify them to work with 3 bulb lights instead of the stock 2 bulb setup.



Here is a picture of the new LED reverse bulbs I got - they are SOO bright and blue. Whoever says that you cannot get a good LED reverse bulb is wrong. These suckers are awesome! They match the blueish glow my HID have.....



Here is a closeup of how my HID look.



Here is a far away shot of how my HID look.



Here is a shot of what I see at night when I drive around with my HID's on - The range is just incredible....



I took this last picture to show how my driving lights look from behind, but it does a good job also of showing how wide the HID beam goes to the side.

I bought my HID's from a guy on eBay "NISSANGTRPOWER".

I think with shipping both kits were like 350$ all together?

As for the LED tail bulbs, I got them on ebay as well from a guy "CAL-MOTOR" - 30$ including the shipping.

My truck is Sonic Blue - I see these all the time. It's not a rare color.

I am looking to trade my custom made LED dome light with someone who has a stock domelight in good condition. This is the perfect oppourtunity for someone to get a brighter dome light. I have another post about this if anyone is interested.

Looks good man. Those tails are knockoffs of APC tails that were out years ago. I put those on my old '01 ranger.....i wired the top "red dot" to be the tail/brake/turn, and the bottom "red dot" I wired up as just a taillight. Reminded me of a Dodge.

Looks good man...keep up the moddin'!

Has anyone bought the spiderlite bulbs for the brake lights, rear turn signals or front turn signals... I hate my stock incandescent bulbs - I want to try these but I'd like some live photos first....

Dude, I wouldnt buy them there, they sell them cheaper on autolumination.com or superlumination.com I think... or another website I might have bookmarked at work.

Ive seen em' for 30 or 40 each. I have the money I just want good results.
