Default 35w HID system 8k

Hey I am selling my HID system. There is nothing wrong with it, I just want to upgrade systems to a 55w. The 35w is good but i tinted my headlights so i need something brighter now. The HIDs are 8k and show good in the ranger. There is nothing wrong with them.

I have feedback on Ebay sense i dont have none here. And I can take a picture of the whole set if interested. They are currently on my truck now.

Just make a offer!
This is them in my truck

Not to get off the topic of the add but why did you tint your headlights? and will the 55 really be that much brighter?

Because i thought it would look nice. And it does look nice to be honest.
Not sure if the 55w will be brighter but i think they would be sense its more watts.

My only concern would be with what you used to tint them. 55 watt also means more heat. Just a thought before you go selling your 35's.

Thats truee about the heat part..

Another thing to remember is when you tint or do anything crazy to your headlights its like putting a target on you to get stopped. HID's are about as far as I go and even those are frowned on by some.

If you have an old pair of headlights to experiment on, try sandpaper. Thats what my buddy used to get it off his tails and redo them, but I dont know if it would scuff your headlights up too much.

Yeah i was thinking about that... But i did not wont to scratch the lens all up. So im just going to try nail polish remover if that fails then i will try some paint thinner.

Once i get it off i will clean it with soapy water.

if youre going to run 55 watt i strongly suggest running a relay kit as well, or they will most likely flicker and shit
