HIDs in the Off-Road lights...finally

Sorry no night shots till tomorrow but I finally got some energy and got this done after 2 or 3 months. My Dad just got a new dremel and that helped out immensely this time around:

NICE! Time to drop even more and make your fogs match man. lol.



Be sure to let us know how they perform at night. If it's good or gooder than the halogens.....then it looks like i'll be the first to attempt this with slimlites....all 4 of them!

This is the dremel I bought myself earlier this year.. and it works -fantastic-.. quick fixes are a breeze if you got the right tool... and this is definitly one of the ones I suggest to anyone, especially the little 3 foot length attachment wand for it

^^x2!


I'm seriously thinking about doing this to my four slimlites.


Justin...are they brighter than halogens? about the same?

I wonder what differnt lenses would do? Like say....2 long rangers, and 2 driving rangers...

to be completely honest, i could not tell you if they are better than the halogens as i only had a chance to use the halogens once before they burnt out. i need to find someone else with these lights and do a side by side comparison

Shane do you have a pic of your set up and how you set it up? I wouldnt mind getting another pair of lights up front.
