The problem is still there with the stock headlights, but the lense on the stock headlights diffuses enough of it that you don't really notice it.

dang. I just dont understand why the high beams are halogens and do it too:dunno:


Crappy designed headlight reflector bowls.

wouldnt retrofit look stupid on my truck


Do the Denali headlights look stupid? :dunno:

Take your time and do it right, and it'll look factory :thumbs:

You should be able to even fit a nice bi-xenon projector in your low beams... Then you'll have 4 highbeams :D

Projectors, D2S bulbs, and AMP to D2S adaptors for your ballasts...

www.hidplanet.com has a great forum to read up on it, and there's people that will retrofit for you.

If you're on a budget though, I'd hold off on it... Doing things right can cost a little bit...
Doing it yourself saves you a big chunk of change, it all depends on what prices you can find things at.

This has a guy selling some basic projector housings already trimmed and awating some FX-R projectors (those are bixenon) for $50.

That leaves you finding the FX-R projectors, which are generally between $100 - $150 depending on condition and avaliablility. Some D2S bulbs, which go anywhere from $20 - $100/pair

You can probably order some low end ebay D2S bulbes with the AMP connectors for your ballasts, and skip the adapter...
