I'm sorry but I think your an idiot if your going to do this. First you say you adjusted your lights all high, which is stupid in itself. Then you put HID's into the lights that you adjusted up high blinding everyone even worse. Now your going to put a 55 watt kit into those high up adjusted headlights? That's just stupid and I hope you get a ticket. I'm not against HID's in stock Ranger housings, but I am against doing it with the headlights adjusted up, and putting a 55watt kit in a non projector housing. If you want to go to a 55watt kit put those projectors you have for sale in. Don't take it personal, saying this because even with my truck lifted I still get blinded all the time by these idiots with 55watt 38 billion K purple headlights. Why do you even adjust them up anyway? When I got my truck the headlights were still adjusted at stock and never reaimed after the lift. I couldn't see **** with them like that. Driving after it rained was scary because I couldn't see the big puddles on the side of the road until they were 5' in front of me.

There are a few headlight aiming guides online, I suggest you read one and adjust it the way they say. You will see at night much better and not blind others.

They aren't adjusted "high" - they are as high as I can go without getting any flashing at me. As they are set now I never get flashed. If I try and bring them up anymore then I will get flashed. The setting they are at now is lower than stock (the way Ford aim's the stock bulbs)

FYI,

DDM is going to lower their prices even more, I just read from someone who works (or owns?) DDM and they said by the end of this month or early February their cheap Raptor brand HID kit will be dropped to $35. He also said that once they move their manufacturing from China to either the US or Mexico (depending on the DOT) that he is shooting for a goal of a $17 HID kit.

It sounds like a good way to make a **** ton of money lol. If you buy a bunch of them and sell them on craigslist you could probably sell them for like $50 or $65 a kit and sell out fast. Get some flyers made and hand them out at the local ricer parking lot car shows. You'd make a lot of profit on each one and sell out fast, on CL around here there's a ton of HID kits for sale and they are all like $100.

I just ordered an Apexcone HID kit from DDM, we'll see how long it takes before I get them. I don't mind waiting a week or two, my silverstars still work fine.
