Do you have a diagram or something on how to wire it to the high beams? Will it work even if I have single beam? I'm really looking into this and going out and buying some off road lights and install a kit in it. Thanks

Yup. See my schematic #2 in this thread. http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exter...ht-wiring.html

Instead of the wire from relay terminal 87 going to the normal lights, they go to power the HID ballasts.

That's crazy! Okay so I saw some off road lights at Walmart for 40 something bucks. I would like to get those and a 8k kit and hook em up to the high beam wire. That's one crazy diagram. I'll study it.

Everything fit back together nicely. Mounted the ballasts behind the grill. They are tied into my high beam circuit they come on automatically when I put the high beams on.

First pic: one HID and one halogen off-road light
Second pic: full HID off-road lights and headlights.

I would like to do this. How did you wire everything up? I heard not to wire them up to fogs (I have fogs). But I would like them to come on and off as a high beam. But just like that, everything on. I have some wicked dark back roads towards my house and really need something like this. Thank you in advance.
