Can someone help. I bought after market headlights a while back. I was trying to install my bed xenon bulbs but theirs a price of plastic in the way behind the headlight housing and I can't push the headlight back in. Has anyone had this problem. Online it claims this is the right size bulb and everything maybe I have to just trim some plastic.
Did you buy 9006 with the straight or curved base? If curved you might have to trim one of the tabs on your bulb slightly. I just had to do the same.
Curved :/ okay. So than what exactly do I have to do ? Or trim ?
Is it hitting one of the torx heads sticking out? See which tab is hitting there and slightly trim or file it down on the edge. Once you get it to clear it will take some finesse to get it twisted in since the harness will be binding on the housing. It took me a few minutes to figure it out when I did mine.
I have the hirs I like them alot. I didnt modify the tab, if you take the clear plastic thing off the back of the headlight, ( its the thing where you line up the tabs to put the bulb in) and put the bulb in and put the clear thing back on yoh dont have to even cut the tab to fit. Took 2 extra mins with a torx screwdriver.
Sorry my descriptions kinda bad lol.
The only problem with installing the bulb the way you did is that you are unable to replace the bulb UNLESS you have the torx driver handy. So on the road you might be SOL. Otherwise your idea works.
Got it out of a 1992 ford Taurus. Only had to cut one wire which is the "window down" wire (violet) I cut the harness that comes from the motor itself to preserve my vehicles wiring. The ford relay gets wired inline from the switch side and to the motor side of the aforementioned wire. Then just tap into power (tan/blk), ground (blk), and "window up" wire (bro) so you can stop the auto down.
Works great and you can use the auto down from the drivers side switch also. Be sure to get as much of the harness from the donor vehicle as possible to leave yourself enough length to stash the module. I used industrial 3M double sides tape to mount the module in the door.
Finally found a bumper style I like :-D it's the protofab baja tube bumpers for the ZJ
And the rear
My fab guy thinks their should not a problem building these for the wj, what do you guys think of course I will be adding skid plate to the front an maybe a pre-runner style light hoop don't know for sure
