Hey I want to put HIDs in my 2013 and short of taking the bulbs out to take a look, I haven't been able to find what kind of bulbs are in the projectors and the high beams. Are they the same as previous years? H11 and 9005?

What kit did you install?

Cool, alright. I see you've been shipping to Edmonton. What's the shipping situation to Canada been for you? Guys paying a lot of tax/duty on this end? High shipping cost?

it runs $25 up there. its sent as a gift (USPS) so it shouldn't be bad on taxes, if any are gathered.

My biggest curiosity is how is the cutoff with the HID's?

it's pretty much the exact same as with the halogens! There's actually a really nice thick blue line along the cutoff! I'll try and get some pics this week!

Geez... I thought 6K was supposed to be white? And going up meant it got bluer... where'd the green come from?

These are just the regular factory projectors with a set of HIDs installed? Which HID kit is it?

'12 Ram 3500 Limited SRW 4x4 CrewCab Longbed
Carli 3" "Dominator", Trussed and Hydo'd front, AFE Intake, Deleted, 4" TBE, 37" Toyo M/Ts on TrailReady 5½ Black/Black wheels, H&S Mini Maxx Race w/ Trans unlock and MCC tuned by Draconian, ISSPRO triple pillars (EGT, Boost and Drive Pressure), ISSPRO Turbo Temp Monitor, Custom Tube Bumper, Custom Bed Supports, AMP steps, Race Radio, Spare Tire Lock and enough Lighting to need sunglasses at night

It's not green, photo was taken with my phone! They're pretty much white with slight blue! this is why I wasn't going to post pics because all i have is my phone for a camera and the poor quality!

The buiding i took the pic aginst is yellow so maybe the slight blue from the hid's ad the yellow building is making it look green!

And the hid's are both philips ballasts and bulbs in the factory projectors! This is my truck that is posted above that you can see the lights aren't green!

Bringing this back from the dead here!

So, a few updates.........

The mounting plates are in production, my first batch hits my shop early next week. These will allow me to mount the FX-R HID projectors into the '13 lamps.

Second part.........a plug n play wiring harness for these. I successfully rigged one together, then shipped it to my supplier for replication. We found that the plug on these headlights is a proprietary plug to.........VW. HA! So......

I called the VW this week and ordered in a plug.

taking the light to the dealer to test fit. LOL



Got some weird looks in there........haha!

das plug



Didn't fit. wouldn't go in all the way.........



so......I took a look inside the stock plug.



that stupid white tab, push that in



and.........



she fits!

So, I looked at the guy.......asked him how many he had in the various warehouses.

106.

I said "make that 6 please, I'll take 100".

Should have them in next week and I'll get them over to the supplier for pinning and wiring to the H13 plugs.

Probably looking about about 3-4 weeks from now and we'll be golden.

Wanna throw a couple of those harnesses in with my order? Or at least the VW part number and I'll pick a set up from a local dealership. I'm glad I didn't solder anything, lol.

your order will be shipped WAY before these harnesses are ready. Heck, your fogs are here now, cut and ready to be boxed to ship. If I didn't get sick last weekend - they would have went out Monday.

These harnesses are about.........3-4 weeks out right now bud.

What are you thinking as a price point on these J? Plug and play HIDs, and '13 heads, roughly.

Oh BTW, went a different route with the mirrors.
