Passenger side looks like it's aimed a little higher than it should be. I aim my passenger side slightly higher than the drivers too, but yours looks like it would just continue straight ahead at that height. May be just the pictures?

Actually, my truck is sitting about 3 inches lower on the left side (As Shane said.. crooked driveway) Its worse this year actually.. the snow plow took a big chunk of our gravel and moved it around when we had +-4 feet of snow piled up back there.

I actually adjusted them higher - my projector low's are set at 100% on teh ground about 175' in front of my truck, I actually raised them about 30 feet out tonight, and then raised the foglights to drop down 100% at about 50' from the truck.

Anyone with HID's usually does this because the Foglights fill in the gap left by the upper HID's.. in my case, the projectors fill in fantastic on the upper edges all the way forward, but dont leave much down below - the yellow fog's help give color back to the light to see thigns better at night/

I hate the 6000k only becasue the blue doesnt leave much coloring left on the road - everything is tinted blue. 4300k is the way to go, I jsut need to order some spare bulbs and drill/dremel them a bit to fit the projector housing. I think I can get it done.. just have to play with 'em a bit! 4300k is jsut like the sunlight, everything has its proper color - and you can actually distinguish deer coat brown, from green grass with 4300k

I "think" I have this Thursday off, it was Thursday, or Friday - one of those days.. I'll give you a ring up or text when I figure out.. woudl kick to have ya out here, I'll get you some good chow, a beer or two, and kick it back or a bit - I need ideas for my cluster mod - I ordered all my 20,000 flat top white LED's and a bunch of 15,000 MCD Round Tip Red's to play with - I have some ideas.. wanna share em and possibly cook up some supplies to work on em!


That, and I need to do my upper's and ball joints - the uppers are easy as all crap, 20-30 minutes to do em.. the balljoints, I have no clue - read a bunch of posts but not sure if I want to break it down by myself with only 1 day off -laughs-
