I bought some of the projectorrs off of ebay and converted them to HIDs. The HID's came form ddm. The Hids are 4 H1's with 4 slim ballasts. You will tke some time aiming the projectors to get the displacement of the projectors right. I am not a fan on how the look on the truck. They do look great. Just Not my style for my truck. I will get pics of them on the truck tommorrow. I would like $200 + shipping or best offer. I have over 200 in this project, my loss is your gain.

Here are the headlights


Highs

Yes, the ones closest to the grill are considered the High beams, and he two outside ones are considered the lows, being that they are projectors. I put HIDs in all of the light sockets.

I had these on my 06 pathfinder i just traded in. If you pant the grill black it will change the look and you will like it much better. I thought the same thing as you until i painted the grill and it made a big diffrence.:)

Is there any delay switching between high and low? I thought HIDs took a second to "warm up"?

BTW I think those look hot on your truck, but everyone has their own preference. Good luck on the sale.

Hmmmm never thought of that

The lights do take a second to get to full brightness, but I can still flash the lights at some one, no issue

If you paint the grill and dont like it you can always buy the new chrome peice and put it back the way you started. By the way i also painted the nissan emblem black after i got the black paint out of the word
"nissan" with spray on paint stripper (it is chrome under that) used blue painters tape inside the letters and than painted it and with the " NISSAN" part in chrome and everything else black it looked very good. Sand the chrome peices very well and use self etching primer and it will stick. dont forget to clear coat it or the rocks, bugs, etc, will chip off the paint.

It took some research to figure out what bulb whould fit in the projector, once I found that out I ordered a plug and play kit, hooked up power and grounded it to the frame. Then I spent a few hours aiming the projectors. Save your self the aggrivation, and a little money and buy these.

The lights slide in and are held in be a clip, pop off the clip they slide out. The halos work, all you have to do is hook in to a power and a ground. Shipping to you will be 132.45 and that is ups ground, and they say 6 days in transit. I am in florida, and you are in hawaii. Let me know, I can do it for 300 shipped, so I will pay for part of the shipping?

Nope they didn't melt, no issues with the HID until the connector in the housing broke

Also to update I sent these back and got a refund
