There are many compaines out there that have direct fit HID kits some as inexpensive as $98.00. And there are ones for over $300... There are no differance from the two except the pricing. I have 4 sets of HID 's on My Expy. Low Beam /High Beam and both sets of Lower fog lights all at 10k... And let me tell you on a Dark road with all of them on... Looks like a 747 landing...lol Now as for replacement bulbs if you stay with the same wattage you will be fine some bulbs are higher wattage and your stock wiring can over heat. Plus side its cheaper than HID kits down side you can Ruin your wiring.
OK, I went and bought the HID light kit(s) and I must say the service from the seller was more than great. Ordered them Wednsday and recieved them Thursday afternoon. Now, in order to save time, looking at the kit, I see it has a bracket for the ballast, are there pre drilled holes to bolt this to, or am I on my own in that regard?
Might there be a link to a Ford manual that shows the headlight set up for the 08 Expedition?
I've pulled the two bolts at the top of the headlight: what is still holding the headlight in place? I tried pulling up and it won't come hot. In as much as I still don't have 1k miles on it, I don't want to start prying on some thing.............
Stillen/Expedition has to reply. I opened the box, understood the wiring diagram- but quit when the headlight assembly didn't immediately come out. I'll go back and play with it some more or go ahead and do the fog lights, coming back to the headlights.
I was able to install 1 of the fog lamps this afternoon, loads of fun.......the "bracket" for the igniter was the hard part. I used a self tapping screw to afix it to the cross member that runs under the radiator. That required an angle drill and a trip to the hardware store for a set of "colbalt" bits. (any excuse to buy tools). So, one screw at the bottom and sticky tape in the center. The igniter has to be in the bracket when installed, as there is not room to install it later. One light is functioning and the other will take about a forth of the time in the morning.
10k for the color has pretty much the worst output available. the lower the temp, the higher the output. 4300-5000 is the best for output. the reason for the 747 thing is because of the quantity of lights and the horrible glare. the truely best way is to do a set of custom fabbed hid projectors into your factory headlights.
