Looks Sweet! I want projectors but I think i'll go with the trucklite for simplicity.

For a 165 I recently upgraded my Hella H4 Conversion housing with Osram Cool blue bulbs. Dont have a good night shot, especially since they're angled weird. Definitely a huge difference though, and contrary to what the coating on the bulb would make you believe, they aren't blue.
I have a set PIAA Xtreme white fogs I need to install too. They seem to be the only fogs that should fit the stock location of a 165.

Edit: Updated dead links of my Truck-Lite install on a previous page.

I also resolved this little issue (like ZeroDrift mentioned) I had with the install some time ago but forgot to update this thread. .

I knew they would look great, I wonder if there is a resistor would work


FC Zach wrote:I'm wondering if I could measure and record the ohms with the factory and new light installed then just buy a resistor sized close to the difference of the two? Does that make any sense? (It does in my head lol) Then do I just simply install it inline on the high beam wire?

You'll need to rewire the light in the dash.


What I did to fix this little issue: Instead of using a resistor I simply attached a small 194 bulb to each light.

For fog lights, I found some small LED accessory lights off Amazon for cheap. I made my own mounts to get them where I wanted them.

Did you put the 194 bulb in series or parallel? Where did you physically put the bulb?

Parallel with the low beam lead, tucked the bulb (mounted in a socket with two leads) behind the Truck-Lite on the headlight harness.

Are those led fogs legal for road? I wonder if they might fit the rc center grill like oem.

Probably, as long as you don't have a front mount.
