I have a bunch more pictures to post which I will do as soon as I get them formatted and watermarked. The install was pretty quick…its 3 bolts and plug in the bulbs. We didn’t get to install the Xenon HID kit cause Ford has the low-power warning sensor doo-dad where the Xenon HID would come on for 1/2 a second, then go off. Xenon HID uses 35 watts and halogen bulbs use 55 watts. If the CPU doesn’t detect full 55 watts at the end of the circuit, it shuts off the power to the headlight…not sure how that’s supposed to protect anything. Dodge started using this technology a few years back. To remedy this, we have to add a resistor in the line to the Xenon HID ballast to fool the on-board CPU so it thinks there is a 55 watt bulb at the end of the circuit. Customer wants Xenon HID for his Platinum, so we will accommodate him!
The headlights installed pretty easily. Open the hood and remove that big rubber flap. It’s held in by one plastic screw and plastic retainer. Be careful not to destroy this since it’s flimsy.
The three 10mm bolts came out quick and one good tug of the headlight housing and the headlights were out.
The time consuming part was wiring the halos and LED running lights. I chose a lead coming off the blinker light. In retrospect, I should have taken the power off the side lights. I wouldn’t have to figure out which lead was for the running lights and which lead was for the blinker. Oh well. Got everything wired together and put quick connectors on the leads for the halos/running lights. That will allow the future removal of the headlights to be quick and easy.
The HID was a bit more work. Initially the HID would come on for a quick second then go back off. I even tried installing a capacitor to fool the on-board CPU, but that didn’t work. I was suggested I try a relay. I’ll give that a try tomorrow. I just put the halogen bulbs back in that the projector headlights came with.
Put the projector headlights in alignment with the fender and pressed it back into place. The three 10mm bolts back in and replaced the big black rubber flap…..that was all there was to it. Pretty simple. These headlights are a hundred times easier than the older F150/Expedition headlights prior to 2004.

Custom Aftermarket Projector Headlights for cars, trucks and SUV’s
Projectors headlights originated in Germany about twenty years ago. It was technology taken from racing vehicles driven at night. The projector headlight technology started seeing common roads on many upper-class vehicles such as the BMW. BMW wanted to produce a headlight that would focus the light directly in front of the car instead of on the sides of the road and into the sky which standard parabolic headlights do. It was important to have the maximum amount of light in front of the vehicle when traveling at speeds over 150 kilometers/hour. Shortly thereafter, Japan expanded on the projector headlight technology and used it on a few Lexus vehicles. Now, projector headlights are seen on most new vehicles (foreign & domestic) built today including many high-end SUV’s. Aftermarket automotive projector headlights are becoming more mainstream opposed to the previous parabolic headlights used in the 1980’s & 1990’s. Again, the purpose of the projector headlight is to focus the beam of light in front of the vehicle instead of all over the highway…in areas where lighting isn’t really necessary.

Custom After Market Auto Parts, Accessories Are A Dominant Market
After market auto parts (alternately, aftermarket) is a booming business in the USA. It is said Americans love their cars and many enthusiasts want to make their cars the baddest, best or the fastest cars that they can afford. That’s where MyTightRide.com comes in.
When buying a new automobile from a dealership, factory options are referred to as “stock options” or “stock” for short. The wheels, engine, transmission and all performance parts are stock, including the lighting and interior. Sometimes the dealership offers upgrades, such as a better speaker system, amplifiers and other audio components, but even these are stock options, and commonly limited. Therefore, many people elect to further modify their vehicles after purchasing them, to make them truly unique.
Many of the modifications made to one’s car are made using after market auto parts. Aftermarket simply means that the product being installed onto or into one’s car is made by a company other than the original manufacturer of the car. Any part made by the original manufacturer is considered OEM, or original equipment manufacturer. Most performance parts are manufactured by aftermarket companies due to their ability to specialize in particular field. Aftermarket parts range anywhere from air intake kits to car graphics kits, custom front grilles, L.E.D. tail lights and chrome rims. Aftermarket parts can sometimes be installed by the car’s owner with minimal or no knowledge about automobiles, while other parts will require professional installation. Knowledgeable advice should be sought in order to make an educated decision before buying an aftermarket product.
In many instances, using after market auto parts on one’s vehicle may void its warranty, if any exists. Therefore, be sure to check your automobile’s manufacturer warranty before electing to make aftermarket changes. Additionally, many after market auto parts are specifically designed to fit only certain model cars and certain years of that model. Before ordering an after market auto part, be certain it matches your vehicle’s make, model and year.
Perhaps even more important is compatibility with the law. Many aftermarket parts are not illegal to sell, but when installed in an automobile they may violate local laws and regulations. For instance, window tinting levels vary from state to state, as well as emissions laws and taillight and headlight colors and brightness levels.
The popularity of custom after market auto parts and accessories continues to be a strong market in the USA. As long as there are vehicles on the road, the demand for aftermarket auto parts and accessories will always be there.
