Front view



First I had to make a little room for the bulb. I made a notch with my dremel for the bulbs rigid wire.



Then I had to make room in the back of the light.



I mounted the balasts under my rack.



I got these HID conversions off ebay from Blinglights. Just search for 50 watt HID. They are pricey but much cheaper than the Lightforce 50 watt HID lights.

Man, Beat me to it! I was thinking using some Hella's with H1 conversion kits from ebay. Found some for 110 shipped, + gotta get the Hella's of your choice... Decided on the Hella's because it seems like they'd be direct replacement without modifying the light housing itself. I like the IPF's I had though...

Recently, I've also seen some ebayers with "converted HID off road lights" consisting of Hella housings + plus some cheep ebay HID conversion kit already installed. They're selling them for about 400+.

Great modding! Defiantly much better then 1000 bucks for a set of factory HID off road lights!

I also have some hella lights on the way to be converted too. Both flood and spot. I will have 3 pair of lights (spot, driving/spot, and flood) in front with 50 watt HID in each and a pair of flood lights in the rear converted to the normal 35 watt HID.

Taz,

What are your thoughts on water resistance with that kit and the whole conversion process? Are you planning on doing some extra waterproofing or do you think it's pretty solid as is?

I would love to convert my IPF's to HID, but I'm worried that the balasts will be destroyed at the first serious water crossing (I have my lights on my ARB).

I was wondering the same thing about its resistance to the elements. Are they waterproof or resistant? Do you think they can be modified to have longer wires to relocate the balast to a remote location?

I have VisionX HID replacements for my headlights and the ballasts are mounted right behind my grill. They are constantly exposed to water in the rain and on the trails and they have not failed me yet. They have been on there for about 3 years going strong.
