    conversion HID with made for halogen headlamps... it is not a truck, it is glare monster. For reflector optics D2R bulbs are used

    It would be better idea to add 90 mm hella HID low beam projectors in bumper

    I'm guessing I might have to cut open the back of the existing housing but I'm not sure..
     
  7. If people bothered to aim their lights properly, their wouldn't be the blinding issue.

    Hunters Peterbilt here sells them. They carry almost all of the UP lights, so I'd imagine they would carry them elsewhere...if not try ebay or bigrigchromeshop.com or empirechromeshop.com

    So what does a guy do when you can't upgrade the whole assembly like Ken is doing? I don't believe there's any aftermarket solution for my Pete 387. Am I screwed?
