If someone doesnt want their HIDs and want to go back to stock let me know and I will buy them off of you and send you my stock ones.

And Im not sure I understood one person in here about the h11's to h9's bulbs? Are the H9's a lot brighter but of course not as bright as HIDs.

I had to adjust my lights quite a bit after installing the HIDs. I was surprised how much I had to adjust them. I run 55W 5000K and have yet to be flashed back

I'm glad you at least adjusted them... I see people driving around with HIDs lighting up the tops of 30' trees, hahaha

Seriously! They were hitting second story windows at 100 yards! I had to bring them way down but now they're soooooo perfect. I hate my work trucks lights now. It's an Expedition and I never realized how crappy the lights are until I put these on my personal truck

As stump3r stated, aim the lights. Weather you have 4300k 0r 8000k, your dealing with color not light brightness. If you want brighter, upgrade to the 55w from the 35w you have now.

Either way, aim the lights!

I have yet to order a set of HID's. It sounds as if most of you are putting these conversion kits into the factory lens and readjusting where they point Am I correct in this? I am torn/confused as to whether or not to get the projectors. Do the projectors also come with the HID bulbs and associated/necessary hardware? Do I have to purchase all that separately?

Yes, I put in the 55W HIDs in the factory lenses. They already have the caps built into the lens. I had to adjust down quite a bit. I hear projectors are even better but I'm very happy with this setup
