There is a lot of hardware that goes with the projector insall. There are a bunch of ballast resistors, relays dummy loads and controll relay. I had to stick stuff wherever I could. On the drivers side there is really no room so I cut out the back of the headlight bucket to gain access to the outside of the forward fender frame.

Nice. Still has the old school look but new tech behind them.

Were you able to mount the resistors away from everything? They get hot...

Yes, they are mounted on plates or frame.

The ballast resistors on the drivers side can be seen by walking by. I painted them with rubberized chassis paint. Pretty much hidden and now mostly water proof. Took red out on the road and wow! Those lights are bright. High beams are great and may have some room for more improvement. The low beams cut offs are IMO about 15 feet too low. They are out of the face of oncoming traffic but I want a little more illumination immediately in front of the truck. This might be the result of such a great high beam. Ee will see. Projectors are bright!

ONce you get them adjusted just right they will be awesome! I think the normal drop is 2-3" at 25 feet away. So park about 25' from a gargae door or wall on a level surface, measure the top of the beam in front of the headlights, and adjust the light so it falls about 3" at 25'. Take it for a test drive and see what you think. You'll be alittle better off since you have a lowered truck, with mine being higher it takes alittle more drop to keep it out of other peoples eyes. I pissed off quite a few people when they were slightly out of line.

Yeah, I think I need to raise the low beam cut off a little.
