I got a set of Diamond cut conversion kits for my 99 TJ, just because I got sick of the sealed beam look. I love them but recently my buddy gave me a set of HIDs. I am afraid to use them because the are too bright. Any body got any suggestions on install and aiming. Or should I just forget about it and just sell them

I'm no expert on HIDs by any means, so take this with a grain of salt.

I'd install them and see what the cutoff is like. If the new headlamp housings have a sharp cutoff, I'd run the HIDs and aim them kinda low so you don't blind everyone.
Or if you're really creative, you might try doing a retrofit.


One last thing, you might want to do some lurking on hidplanet.com and see what people say on there.

No, you WILL have lots of glare, and not a very good cut-off line, if one at all. Putting HIDs into housings hardly ever look very good. The only way to get no glare and a good cut-off line is with projectors.

However, if you wish to sell them, I may be interested Mr. Green
