HID's & a pics of the truck with a REAL camera

Finally got a hold of a real camera so I had a small photoshoot. Trucks a little dirty, but that's just how I roll. Got my new HID's in 5000k and they kick as.

Enjoy the pics. Hope you guys like them.

Also, by request, here is my 04 valance on the XLT chrome bumper, and how it's attached. It has the 'horns' for the Edge/4x4 bumper cut off, and a bracket is plastic welded in its place.

They hadn't warmed up completely yet, and they have a small tint to them. They light the road up completely white tho. And thanks, the valance does go pretty well lol.

Yeah, wire nuts...I haven't gotten around to soldering the wires, but they haven't caused any problems for the past couple months.

Thanks for the compliments.

I'd at least use butt splice connector's. They can be found at any auto parts store.

I bet you are. I can't believe how incredible the lighting is with them. Even just the fog lights seem like they are brighter than my old Silverstar heads.

I don't like the look of different colored lights, and we don't get fog here in Southern Arizona so much. Thanks though!

They do look pretty sick because they fill the housing. The glare isn't too bad either, especially after I aimed them down a bit. Thanks man.
