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
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.
