Hey guys, I'm currently testing out a set of HID's from Blown408(provided through Gotham Cycles) and all I can say is they look astonishing. It took me roughly 20 minutes per side to complete this mod and it was very straightforward. I went with 6k's and they are a very nice bright white with a slight tint of blue. The overall light output is increased substantially over the factory setup.

This is how I went about installing the HID's

Step 1: Remove the clips holding the dust guard in place

Step 2: Removed the 4 screws from the back of the headlight housing

Step 3: Turn counter-clockwise to remove the old bulb then remove the clip holding the bulb to the factory wiring

Step 4: Connect the new bulb to the factory wiring(make sure to match the blue wire to the red and black to black) but leave the bulb in the protective case and out of its installed position for the time being

Step 5: I recommend testing the headlight to make sure the wires are connected properly

Step 6: Insert the new bulb and turn clock-wise to lock it into place

Step 7: Mount the HID ballast via zip ties onto the 2 post present in the headlight housing

Step 8: Consolidate your wiring by attaching a zip tie( this will help to insure the wiring stays within the housing when you begin to re-attach the back of the headlight housing

Step 9: Re-install the back of the headlight housing and dust guard

Step 10: Rinse and repeat
Get set go. Lights look wonderful. Awesome work done man

Yep always a good measure and anyone doing fogs should up to 30amp from 20amp just to be safe as well. Wont hurt anything.

Awesome, let me know if you have questions and recommend upping your 10amp low beams to 15amp (20 max) and fogs up to 30amp from 20amp.

I'll see if I can get to that this weekend. Battery is disconnected and car is on jack stands until I can get new intake manifold gaskets.

More info/comparison pics of the mini-H3s please. I have HIDs in all my rigs but the H3 bulbs I currently have are too long to use the reflector correctly in a couple (Grand Cherokee fog, Harley driving). Thanks.
