Default My HID lights

I finally put HID lights on my ranger! They are 8000k white lights on my headlights and foglamps. My first mod to date!

8000k...
my truck has 4000K and i think they light up plenty.
whats next? 10,000K, 12,000,15,000K?

you young guys really need to drive a car from the 70's. you'd realize then that factory ranger headlights are not that bad.

VERY good looking!

Looks like 4.5k in headlights and 8k in fogs? Seems only the fogs are blue, or is it the angle?

I'd love to see night shots too!

:-((

I sold mine for 500 missing engine/trans, but then it went with the trans and I got a rebuilt th350 and rebuilt th400 in trade. lol. Mine was a D1200 3/4 ton 4x4 7' stepside.......I got lots of looks at the wheels since they're a 'big' 6-lug.....like 6x8.5. People kept telling me it was only a half ton. They obivously don't know 'nats! lol.

/end hack. lets stop this thread hacking. lol.

Well here they are. I may have to take more as soon as I get new batteries for my camera. The box that the HID's came with said they were white but it looks good to me.
