i have not done it to a old ford yet but i have done it to a civic. you want a 6000k or 8000k light not a 10000k one.

You will have to upgrade the wiring to run these. A relay conversion is best, where you run large gauge wires straight from the battery to the relays, and use the stock wiring to switch the relays.
If you try to run these straight off the original wiring, it will cause issues.

Hey thanks for the heads up!! I prolly should have mentioned that I have completely rewired the truck with a 21 circuit kit from painless!! But yea it would be an issue for a person with the stock wiring.

Some areas the cops target blue headlights. They are technically illegal as they are not white.

the 10000k,12000k, and 30000 are illegal in all states! the 8000k and 6000k wont get you into trouble.
this is how the numbers add up too.
  • 3000K = Yellow Tint
  • 4300K = White
  • 6000K = Pure White
  • 8000K = Slight Tint of Blue
  • 10000K = Tint of Blue
  • 12000K = Most Blue
  • 14000K = Blue
  • 30000K= Purple Tint
and here is a pic of the different beams. the higher the number the brighter but it is also bluer and is less controlled light, so it will blind the on coming cars.

hope this helps you out.

Which harness as I did not see one on Painless website. How difficult was it to install and how much troubleshooting did you go through after the initial install.

I used the painless kit i got several years ago. Umm everything is labled as far as the wires function it was a universal kind of kit but if you know wiring pretty good its fairly easy!! Not sure if they offer a 21 circuit kit anymore?

If you can I'd be interested in seeing the before and after pics this is an upgrade I had in mind when I get the truck that far let us know what you all have to do for the installation for them to work right
