And I have a buddy who totaled two rental trucks while waiting for his insurance company to decide if they were going to total his original truck. The causes of the accidents? In order: wild pig, deer, wild pig.

Needless to say, I want (much) better light.

But I don't want to be that guy who pisses other drivers off because his lights are so damn bright.

Aaaand I want to retain a more stock '99 look.

Do you have a solution?

Thanks,
Robert

Robert,

All of our HID projector light sets feature a cutoff line that eliminates glare in oncoming drivers' eyes. Regarding a more stock appearance, I would recommend the Basic Retrofit kit in chrome (link below)

Actually Herb, they're usually too lean to make bacon from.

And thanks for the info Scott.

Basic Retrofit kit in black/chrome built today for a local SMB owner featuring the new Turbine shrouds for a different look. Personally, I think they look awesome!

Rainy day installation of the set posted above was a success save for a set of turn signal bulbs that wouldn't cooperate. We got them straightened out and the final product looks great!

I finally got my lights installed. The black with chrome housing with the switchback kit is a nice complement to the aluminess bumper and black hood louvers. Thanks for answering all my questions!

Are there any other adjustments to the housing/grill that can be made?

I have the headlights installed but the vertical adjustment isn't quite right on the drivers side. I have the screws maxed out/screwed down but the drivers side still needs to be slightly tipped back/sucked in to get the beam higher. It slumps. I almost need a spacer to kick the bottom out.

The metal housing/grill has a little play in it. I can forcibly push it back a few millimeters on the top of the to get it to adjust the beam upwards.
