6. Now you can install the new HID lamps in housings. I found that the new bulb did not fit very tight into the housings so I modified the seals slightly. I removed the rubber seal and placed an o-ring underneath and re-installed the seal to make a tighter fit.

7. Now install the wiring in the truck. First the Positive wire to the battery terminal.

Second the gound wire. I found the chassis ground was closer to the head lamp and the wires were very short that came with the kit so this worked alot better than the (-) terminal on the battery.

8. Next I mounted the Relay and the Slim Ballast.

9. Then I positioned the wiring.

10. Now on to the passenger side. My truck was slightly easier than stock due to the fact that I have the factory intake removed because of the aftermarket K&N intake setup, so you might want to just drill an access hole in the plastic here next to the intake hole. I was able to just run the wiring through the old factory intake hole. (NOTE: You need to drill a hole some where for the ground wire on this side. Make sure you grind any paint off to ensure you get a good ground here... I made that mistake and when I turned my lights on the passenger side did not work... grinded the paint down and on she came... just my 2 cents)

11. Final step before re-assembly (optional)
I took a bag and taped it over the old headlamp connector on the passenger side since it is not used with this kit to keep any corrosion out.
