youll need the composite headlight pigtails, but everything else is compatible.
These come with my light kits if you need them.

Don't you need to replace the grill and other pieces behind the grill?

Nope, the original header panel comes prepped from Ford to be compatible with both versions. If you are concerned and want confirmation, post a photo here and we will have a look.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Can you provide a link to the proper HID kit? There are so many, it's a bit confusing. Thanks................

I would avoid the $20 kits on ebay and the like because the ballasts are usually inferior and don't put out the power needed to fully ignite the bulbs. The results are low light output and blue tinted lights. I bought a set and I threw them away.

I bought these morimoto bulbs... http://www.theretrofitsource.com/compon ... OizeihwFUQ

and ended up with these ballasts... They are bigger, but they are solid and work great. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00301 ... UTF8&psc=1 (the standard 35 watt ballasts).

You can use any 35 watt H1 HID kit with these lights I provide. If you choose the Morimoto items, you will pay a ton of money (5x more) for more or less the same thing. I have had very good luck with the budget HID kits. When combined with the proper bixenon relay harness they have no problems lighting up and not flickering. I have had good experiences with the following items and I recommend them for those interested in keeping a tight budget:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171221706222?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Digital-H1-HID- ... 266wt_1362

One thing to consider, the higher the color temperature of the bulb (bluer looking) the less available output this setup will provide. The 4300K bulbs offer the most output and are a nice white color compared to the stock halogen bulbs.

I can do the projector retrofit on the newer lights but the cost will be in the $600 range as the lights are very pricey. If anyone is interested in these, send me an email and we can talk.
