HID how to??

hey all i was checking to see if I found a write from one of you who have HIDs on you truck but was not lucky enough.
Well I ordered some HIDs for my truck and as the set up seems simple there is one smal wire that has silver tip that I am not sure as to where it goes(could this be the ground?) please can anyone help me out?? thanks

Give us a little more info on the kit you bought. Even better, post some pics of the kit and I'm pretty sure we can get you pointed in the right direction.

HIDs really make a huge difference. Just make sure you readjust your angle when you get the bulbs installed.

I know you can have issues if you go with a hi/lo beam set up.
I had to swap 2 pins in the blue plug on the relay harness. I guess the 9000 series bulbs share the same plug, but some have single or dual filaments.
It also depends on how your relay harness is configured from factory.
The rest of the wiring is pretty
Simple. relay harness ties to battery then the plugs for the ballast side are polarized. You get your relay signal from one of the head lights
plugs and you ground the ballasts where they mount.

Hi all,
thanks for the comments so I finally figured that the cables I mentioned are not needed, but now my question is ; How do we take out the bulbs (stock) from the housing to put the HID in??

You need to have a special tool called the "Headlight Removal Tool" You'll probably have to call the dealership to get one. You may get lucky at a parts store though. It would be on the same isle as the blinker fluid.

yeah make sure you get the left and the right so you can remove both bulbs. If you're lucky you might be able to find the whole tool kit.

J/K!!!! don't need any tools. Unplug connector from the stock bulb then find the retaining ring that goes over the bulb. Turn the ring and it should pop out. After the ring is off the bulb should be able to come out too.
