That light output looks horrible. I can't believe you are going to leave the the hids in the fogs with that output.

I'll stick with the stockers. For some reason, the Chevy headlights seem to be the brightest things I've ever seen.

5000k.. which is why I'm confused on what highs to get if i get 55w. It says they wash out so an 8000k looks like a 6000....

Yep!

and I know. I guess they could come down some, and I want to adjust them out some if I can, it seems like the lows are just too concentrated in the center, i noticed it with the halogens which is a reason i drive everywhere with my fogs on.

Looking good man, gotta love HIDs. Looks like they do need some adjusting though.

They do wash out the color if you get 55w. I have 55w 8000k HIDs on the ranger and they definitely look like 6000k.

yeah for real. the brights on my dads 07 2500 are the best brights I've ever seen. they have better output than any aftermarket lighting I've used combined with brights.

Lookn good Matt, even if it is a chevy
