H4 Conversion

Tools needed: Phillips Screwdriver, Needle Nose pliers, Flat Head Screwdriver.

1.Purchase a pair of H4 Head Lights. ($25.50 eBay cheap H4’S work great I went with the diamond style not the projection lenses)
2.Remove corner lamps 2 screws each side. 4 total screws (don’t lose)
3.Unplug and remove corners flat head comes in handy opening the plugs up.
4.Unplug and remove both head lights from the truck by removing the hold down spring and rotating the entire assembly out of the adjustment screws.
5.Lay headlights down and remove the 4 screws that hold the bezel’s down 8 screws total.
6.Remove old Headlights make sure you keep the back assembly facing upright.
7.Install the new H4's. The new H4's are a tight fit I had to force my bezels on or you can trim a little off but they will fit with no cutting just takes some force.
8.Screw the bezel on this is tricky I put a screw in opposite corners to keep it centered then I put the other screws in may have to do a bit of bending to line up the holes and lots of force to get the screw started. (Keep hands out of way of screwdriver path so you don’t puncture yourself).
9.(Optional Step) If you want you can wire in the little parking light that comes with the system. I hooked the negative side up to the hood latch bolt and the positive side I used a Mid Way wire connector. This seemed to be the best way instead of hacking into the stock harness and having to soldier. Do this to both sides.
10.Install the new H4's by rotating them into the adjustment screws. And re set the springs on the corner of the back assembly.
11.Reinstall the grille.
12.Reinstall corner lamps
13.Plug headlights and corner lights in.
14.Test to make sure your corner lights still work and your new headlights. (Check low/hi Beam) (I had a bad bulb with my kit. A pair of bright white H4 Wagner’s ran me $18.13)
15.If everything checks out you can enjoy your new H4 conversion.

Fixed sorry didn't realize there was a difference

Ya sounds like headlights to me.... Nothin said about mountin ballasts or anything. And you said you went with the diamond lenses in the same sentence as 25.50 ebay cheaps..... theres no way you got real HIDs and housings for 25 bucks... even on ebay
