There are several options to changing over.
1. The simplest way is to replace the bulbs and just mount the ballasts with a a god ground for both running all through the OEM wires for the signal and the power. NOT the best way to go due to the harnesses having overpower issues and shortening bulb life.
2. THe next way is slightly different than the 1st and was my route. You do the same as before, but employ a relay that draws power directly form the batter and only uses 1 OEM harness for signal (turn on) and the other is left alone.
3. Is the same as all of the above, but you buy $$ projectors or retrofit the Lexus ones's into your OEM housing for the best light beam pattern.
The 10K that I got are not that glaring supernova white that other people have in the 6k range so it actually looks great in my OEM housing. I am getting a pair of black out lamps as that is the way I am headed with the truck, and it will help with alot of the residual glare that does exist.
