Hid - High Beam Install (pics)

Recommended Posts

Hey All ...


As some of you know, I have finally installed my HID Kit for my High Beams. Here are a few Pics on my Ballast Placement. May give you some ideas ... :thumbs:


I went with the Rikensport 993 - 6000K, 9005 Bulb, set. These match my low beams. (The 4 High Conversion is next.) ... Here is a LINK to my Low Beam Install Pics.


Myself and my trusty backyard mechanic, The Waterboy put these in the other night. We took our time, and gave it some thought. We placed them on the side of the moleded plasic support for the headlights. We pulled the front nose/clip off. (It is only 6 clips) This made all the differnce for the install. We secured the ballast bracket with two self-tapping screws. Finally we used a BMFZT (Big Mother-F*cking Zip-Tie) to secure the whole unit in place, as an "Added" safety precaution.


All said and done, it took us about an hour. We took our time, and did it right.

Relief Cut - We drilled two small holes to run the wires through. Since when the Headlight Assembly (Bucket) was replaced. The wires were tightly bent.

looking good! I use to have HIDs in both highs and lows with the high4 kit and it was so awesome! But my HIds went out :( I had my high ballasts mounted behind the bumper and they got wet and rusted, i think thats why my highs went out, as for my lows that were protected from water i have no idea :confused:
