just kidding, its sitting on its bumpstops.

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.

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.

Okay it's hitting right where I circled it. The stock bulb goes right above it. This one hits it and won't allow me to push the headlight all the way in place.

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.

Here is the modification though

Are the HIRs legal? Do they cause any glare like HIDs? (which I know are definitely illegal to have in the stock housing)

Yes they are legal. Just remember to adjust your headlights. I just did the 9005 swap tonight. Will see how it looks tomorrow night.

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.

Nicely done.

Personally, I think that looks horribly unfinished... but to each their own. If it's strictly a trail rig, or you just don't care what it looks like, go for it!
