Re: WJ HID reverse lights ~~ A Different way..

Where and how did you mount the ballast? Which brand did you use and did you go with the slim ballast type?

Thanks,

Scott

Re: WJ HID reverse lights ~~ A Different way..

I'm thinking of doing this mod or maybe adding silverstar high beam 9005 bulbs to the reverse lights. Has anyone else done either of these?

Scott, the ballast are in the bumper, not mounted but just sitting there. I used an extra set of HIDs I had laying around, they are 5K if that makes a difference. Slim or normal size ballast don't matter in this case.


if you have any other questions post them or pm me

Re: WJ HID reverse lights ~~ A Different way..

wow HID reverse lights... nice touch! You should splice a relay to a switch in the cabin so you can turn on those lights when some shmuck is driving too close!!

Don't bother with the 9005s, they aren't as bright and they put out a lot more heat, which your housings may not be able to handle. Go for HIDs, you wont be sorry
