Anyone got any advice for that?
I cut and folded the first trim on my zj, i found that doesn't leave a clean finish, tends to leave bend marks and warps the thin metal. I'd suggest just cutting it and being vert careful to get a good line, then grind any rough spots

I'm interested in doing those HID's also. How hard was it? How expensive and do you feel it's worth it? I found some cheap kits off ebay for like $30. But they don't sound to promising.... I later saw that it's already all listed sorry my Internet didn't catch up yet.

But honestly it's a super east kit took me less then 20min

Are they the 9006XS bulbs? Or are they different bulbs? Those (Xs) bulbs are tough to find around here.

I'm not really sure....
I can do some research but they fit right in no problems at all.
