will four of those lights fit on the light rack just curious,
also i have the four halogen lights from brp that i have mounted up on the light rack already but i was wondering if its easy to upgrade to hids are the plugs usually all the same so i can just plug out the halogen lights and just plug in the new hids or is there more to it,
This is all new to me so any comments would be appriciated
Also i noticed brp wants $899 for two of there hid lights that seems alot overpriced are the Xenon hids just as good i noticed there alot cheaper?:unsure:

Wow!!! What an awesome load of goodies to install. I would have a ball setting up and installing all of that stuff. If I were not leaving for vacation tomorrow I would offer to load up my toolbox and come help with the install. :)

Where did you get the printed switches? Those are great!

4 of those Kragen HID lights will NOT fit on the stock light rack... Hell 3 of them barely fit, and then they do not fit like they are suppose to..


Kragen 4" HID Light not fitting from the front







3 Kragen 4" HID Lights fitting from the back of the rack










BUT my light bar is at my local metal shop, possibly getting some slight modifications to allow them to fit better... But either way, only 3 are going on the light rack

The way they make the HID kits I do not think it would work for independent sealed lights... You need to have acess to the stock plugs for the light, and you do not with that kind of setup...

Just to be clear 2 of the Slim Profile 35W 6000k HID lights are less than $80 shipped... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170548091523&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Took apart the roll cage today and started running wire... I found an awesome place to mount the fuse block and the relays {especially since there is 4 of them}... Pics coming after I get a little further running the wire...
