Default Reverse HID Kit with Switch

I installed my reverse HID kit yesterday and didnt take any pictures of the install ,but FastNugly has great tutorial on this. I did however take some pics of how i installed the switch. Its fairly simple on how the wires were ran so i only took pictures after the install.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/111003103266...84.m1497.l2649
This is the HID reverse kit i purchased.











This is under the pickup which i ran the wire under my hide away boxes. There is no visible wire inside the cab except behind my peddles which are still hidden under my carpet.



Here are the lights in the daylight.

Amazing job man!
I did not even know there was a panel there by the pockets to the right of our leg
Did you HID kit require splicing or did it also come with the adapters to make it a seamless job?

I wonder if there is a way to hook it up to the cargo light so it comes on with the cargo light switch and also when in reverse?

Yea I didn't either until the other day I was looking for a place to mount it ,and came across that lol. I wish It would have but unfortunately it did not and I had to splice ,but it did come with like 3 different ends for it. Plus they're not as bright as I imagined them to be.

Your kit looks like mine with the blue ballast. Seems like the kit with the yellow ballast come with the adapters.
Not bright?

Really? These things are bright. Plus you saw it during the day. Go check now while its darker and you'll see how bright they are

Def sounds feasible. And it wouldn't be functioning when you actually need it as your truck will be running at that point.
There is a connection by the front dash panel that presses against the door. Many have interior lighting, bed lighting connected to it for that reason.
To press their key fob and have it turn on

Yea I had em hooked up last night I think it might just me being to picky ,but when I would use my switch going down the road it would burn really bright for a second then it dimmed back down to normal. Is this normal or did I do something wrong? lol
