If you cant afford to do it the right and legal way you shouldnt do it at all. Im with BDAB on this one. Noting pisses me off more than the guys who run HID's in regular housings and think nothing is wrong with it. Its one the most dangerous things you can do with lights when you are blinding every oncoming driver.

guys guys guys. it's fine. I agree with BDAB, and as I said before, I'm one of those guys who have HID's in a halogen reflector!! And I hate seeing hondas coming toward me with bright ass blinding HID's. A common thing I've noticed is the glare isn't bad on bulbs that are covered with that 'dome' over the bulbs. The only ranger to have those 'domes' are 01+. The glare is absolutely stupid dumb on the housings that don't have that 'dome'. This isn't just for Rangers, every HID converted car/truck I've seen, I've noticed this trend. dome over bulb = quite a bit less glare when compared to without dome.

We all can agree, after market cheap housings that have projos are NOT quality units that are proper for HID's. Sure..you can run them, but bloody hell the glare is absolutely horrible. The best solution is the ORIGINAL POST!!! It's not that much money. Plus, you'll be doing it right

Correct. You need to find a way to adapt a proper HID projector assembly in order to avoid the glare problem associated with just installing an HID bulb in a conventional housing.
