I don't have any action shots of those yet, but I have access to a van that I just installed them on. I will take some pics when I see it this weekend.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Ordered up a set in black, sans LED DRL since my current lights are wired as DRL, Scott was pretty sure they will stay that way with the new kit. Will post up pics when they're installed. Ordered up the 5000K bulbs. Scott-thanks, looking forward to getting them in.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Love the lights and the instal was pretty easy after I worked out the wiring and the the harness I needed had extra wires. The only issue is the harness needs to be 3 inches longer for a cleaner install.
The directions on the alignment are great. It did take a day with the install just because I did not know what all I needed to take apart. If you are in SoCal and get a set I can help and I bet it will be easier without my big ass bumper in the way.

Gooseberry,

Glad to hear the lights are treating you well. I agree, the harness is a little short, but with some careful routing the job is a breeze.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

I'll take a set of black ones with no DRL LEDs. These will be replacing sealed beams units, in the link you provided for the harness there was three choices H13, H4, and 9007. I am assuming the 9007?
PM me you paypal info.
Thanks
Morgan

Sure thing Morgan. You will need the 9007 harness as we use an H4 to 9007 adapter to convert from the sealed beams to these. I have sent a PM with further payment info.

Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Installed....a few notes. On the 7.3 you'll want to remove the airbox and intake shroud to be able to route the wire loom to the drivers side, I also had to swap in the OEM clips as mentioned as a possibility with the included directions, the replacement clips left the headlights a little wobbly. They look pretty good, after adjusting I took a quick drive around the hood, will have to wait to see if I need to make some minor adjustments after getting out on the road, they do have a definite cut off, will see if I get flashed.....
Before-


After-

What did you do to the turn signals?
The before and after look dramatically different. What else did you do?
Pretty Bad, Dude...

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Buy the way I used the adjusters off the original lights and that really firmed up the lights
