    Has anyone put HID in a 389? I’ve tried multiple LED bulbs although they are bright they don’t shine bright. I’m assuming the led bulbs don’t work well with projector housings due to not having 360 degree light output. I thought Kensun HID because they are a great value with great customer service and every set I’ve bought before was decent quality that lasted 2 years and had a warranty. So for that kind of quality for $60 you can’t beat it in my opinion. But I want to know if anyone has tried HID in a rig. Because I have no idea how well they would work or if they would even last with all the vibration a rig has every day. Don’t want to spend $1500 on new headlights from jw speaker right now. Just want to see nicely for a couple years first.

    Hid work better in reflector houseing and led in projector....
    Look up headlight revolution on youtube and watch some of their vids..You will see differences is real light vs bs light..Then again your factory houseing could be converted as well to projectors...
    Cant remember the name but there is a company named retrofit something or another that can do it..Popular company on the ram forum..
