Some of these are obviously repeats, but i just reupped everything I could find. I'll take some right now if anyone needs a specific angle, or spot they had questions about.

Let me know what's needed.

Awesome...thanks again. If you wouldn't mind a shot a bit further out showing where the relay/harness is, that'd be great. I'm on my phone now and not in front of the comp, but I recall you mentioned near the battery, but from the up-close pic of it, I can't really see any reference points.

It's just kinda sitting there, but because of the cables being *JUST* long enough, pulling from both directions, it stays put very well.

I'm pretty sure it stays completely dry here too. I rant out of ideas at this point, after a couple hours of "where the H do i put the ballasts..." I said eff it and stuck it in there.

Hey guys, Sorry for the lack of communications. I was away for Canada's Thanksgiving long weekend on a remote island with no 4G DATA connectivity...I hate not being connected!!!

I'm working away at answering all my PM's posts, and emails.

Bil

If anyone has time to, they should post a video to YouTube of how the installed (ran wires, secured ballasts, etc) on their truck! ....just a thought

Cool I see it much better now, SZ...that spot makes sense now because I recall you saying before that the shorter wires on the harness actually help in that spot because they keep it in place. I appreciate the pics!

Bil - hope the holiday was enjoyable!

Stock lens are used. I took the photos without the lens because the pics end up with too much glare.

A video would be too much IMO. It's so simple.

Use 3M tape to secure the ballasts to the housings.

My pics CLEARLY display where you can run the wires.

You don't have enough wire to make it a confusing process anyway. There's really only one way it's going to go in and you just make do with what's in your way.

Honestly man, it's beyond simple.

It really isn't bad at all.

Just take your time, plan it out, then execute. It always has a snag or two, but it's nearly impossible to do something wrong.

.... Well the first three times I turned them on, nothing happened. Then, I cussed it, and remembered to put the fuse in.
