Default projector head lights.

Do these look pretty decent? http://www.andysautosport.com/ford/1...d00000463.html. and how big of a difference would these make compared to my stock housings with my HID's?

I don't see projectors. The headlight spot has a normal reflector no different than the stock one.

ya if you were to get those, you would be wasting your money. you might as well just do the headlight mod to your stock headlights and they'll look the exact same for a lot less money

Your eyes must be going bad lol. Those are for 93-97 rangers if you were to compare them to the 01+ it would be in the turn signal. It basically takes the single beam 9007 and splits it to where you have separate high and low.

Ok so the inside smaller thing is the project, makes sense. What is the big outside reflector section.

I was under the impression that the smaller inner spot was a projector? And the reason I want ned headlights is, I used the 3m headlight restoration kit and my headlights are still cloudy. The outside is clean. But the inside of the housing is the part that's bad now

Can anyone help me out here? I can't find any headlight for my '97 that only has a projector lens. Every one I can find has both the projector housing and a regular halogen housing?

Spyder built tails for the Mazda6 crowd, as long is the same company, and his tails are legit.

How much do the projector conversion kits cost? If I have enough for those. I will just buy some new stock housings and do a projector conversion

$300 for a complete HID projector retrofit kit. The results are AMAZING.
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...hjoacrmfms7i0a

I'm going to be doing this later this month or in early June. But since I already have like 6 HID ballasts in my truck and a wiring harness, I don't need the full kit. Since I'm going to reuse my existing ballasts and harness, it shaves $100 off the price tag.

That is for the high beam. It basically splits it up.

Just get those man. All it does is take your dual beam setup and splits it. With it you should be able to run low and high at the same time.
