Installed Hella E-Code headlights today. ~15 minutes for the install. ~20 minutes to adjust the headlights on the side of the house. ~10 minutes of nighttime driving. Output is amazing compared to stock.

Picked up a cheap flux core from my buddy that was in a bind. I gave him $40, he was asking less. Brand new, never used. He even spooled it up wrong. Crazy, because I've been looking at the same ones at hf, and was waiting until they went on sale. Im happy, and I already started coming up with ideas on stuff to make. Don't worry, I own a dewalt grinder

Bought this kit, http://www.amazon.com/HELLA-00239580...productDetails. I'm just using the Hella brand bulbs that came with it. It is such an improvement over stock that I am not planning to upgrade the bulb until these burn out.

How is the spread?

Here in the mountains, having the stock "pencil beams" is crap for seeing the edge of the road. Have to use the fog lights or I am constantly going Hi-Lo with the lights due to oncoming traffic.

Lots of deer and elk to avoid not to mention there are rarely guard rails and there are trees right next to the road...

Just trying to help you out. Return the K&N and use the $$ for your axle. The K&N will flow to much dirt into the engine. They do not filter very well. Your OEM filter will do a much better job.

First time I've ever heard someone bashing K&N filters.

Pulled the trigger on the following for my HP Dana 30:
ARB locker
4.56 R&P reverse cut
Master Rebuild kit
Currie JJ Kit to replace axle side bushings

Now we wait...

They are great for racing applications, as they were designed for. The problem is that they were designed to work with engines that get torn down and rebuilt often. So the dirt that passes thru doesn't really matter. They are a high air flow design, so with that comes a higher amount of dirt that passes thru the filter. So in short, any motor that you want to last a decent length of time you are better off with a quality paper filter.
