What is wrong with the stock headlight assemblies? There are plenty of us running hid's in our factory headlamp housings.. Unless you're just wanting a different look?

I ran HID's on stock headlights on my old vehicle just fine so I know that works but the lights on the truck have glazed over so I figure I might as well switch it up to try and look better

Gotcha. Some guys have luck with the ebay housings, however some of them end up looking extremely cheap. I know that alligator offers some housings that look pretty good, they could probably hook you up with a good deal on them. If that doesnt work you could also look at LMC truck, they have a few in their catalog as well :thumb

becareful with ebay ones, I got a set, they fit like shit, leak, and you can't set the goddamn things without taking them out and guessing how many fucking turns they need and putting them back in... designer should be shot.

just one thing about projector lights you should know...on my nbs there is a limited sight. hard to explain but its like you cant adjust the lights to shine high/out enough. i have 8k hids bright as the sun for about 15 feet or so on low beam, but then gets darker from there.

Is that just a nbs issue though?
