I did hid one time before and when I turned the high beams on the lights just would go out

2004 headlights might work best for me then. More space

The kit will come with a relay harness to use so you don't have to cut any wiring..... you need it anyways.

The high beam solenoid is attached to the projector body and moves the shield up and down. It has a pigtail that plugs into a wire labeled "high beam" on the relay harness. When you install the relay harness it pulls the low/high signal off of the factory plug so there is no splicing involved. Hope that clears it up some.

Not sure why they turned off before when switching to highs. As long as your highs/lows work properly now you shouldn't have any issues because all it'll do is drop the shield down out of the way.

Looks like you do some awesome work! I recently did mine on my 08 KR in the T5 and G3 colors and you're so very right in the amount of light output versus the stock halogens, it's amazing. I've got a person wanting some after I finished mine and the only problem is I don't have the 2011 body style to get a guide for the headlight height. Have you ever encountered this problem? If so what would you recommend doing?

It's going to be tough without the truck but I've seen it done. The only thing I can think of is by using some type of jig to hold the back of the housing while you are doing the cutting on the reflector. The hardest part though is going to be getting the initial rotation correct since the halogens really just put out a blob of light instead of a definite cutoff.

Either VHT or order some actual tinted ones from Klearz.

how much output difference between the 50w ballast vs 35w ballast with the cbi bulbs? I dont care about replacing the bulbs every couple years if the output is worth it
