Cool HID Conversion

Lost a headlight last week in the Nox, so I ordered the
same kit I put in my 00 3500 CC Dually. It should show
up in a few days, I'll take pic's of the complete install.

Cool man!

I'm working on getting a set of spare headlights for mine so I can begin to fabricate a projector setup. FX35 or TSX low beams with FX high beams! Dual projectors FTMFW!

Doing this tomorrow as soon as I hear back from them
(or anyone else) on which wires go in which spots on
the Blue headlight plug. (They shipped it w/ tabs not
inserted to keep them from being damaged) I need to
know which color wire goes in which position in plug.

One thing I did learn, if you can get the center grill bar
out, then everything else is easy as pie after that. My
kit came from DDM Tuning. (Same place my 3500 Crew
kit came from) and was all plug and play. I had to hook
up 2 ground wires and the 1 battery wire and that's it.
(I also removed the DRL fuse to the maximize bulb life)
I went with the 35w, since our headlight housings are
clear & reflect well, ordered 6K White. (Same as Crew)

You ordered from DDM? It must have taken forever to get your stuff. I used to use them for all my HID adventures and now their customer service sucks and they're getting out of the HID game rendering their warranties void.

If the clips were in stock at ANY of the Dealers nearby
I might pull the bar out and take better pic's, but all of
them say they're out of stock and I have to prepay.
