I have seen a lot of posts about aux lighting upgrades but few about actual headlight upgrades. I cant seem to find the bulb size for sure but from what im gathering a 881 bulb will fit. This being the case, I am a dealer for an HID company that sells HID kits for way less than these other companies. I have personally had a few seat on a few different rides with little to no problems. The ones in my 03 F150 have been in for over 4 years with no problems.

The website is Best HID Kits, HID Headlights online shopping, LCD Projector/Tattoo Kits/CCTV Systems for sale Look at the HID conversion kits which come with plug and play wiring, 2 bulbs and 2 ballasts. They also offer a slim ballast which is much smaller for tight places. I had the slim ballast set in the handlebar light of my foreman for about 2 years...no issues with water or vibration.
Kits are around $25-$50 for a complete kit as opposed to the normal $130 or so people are paying. These kits are made by Hella. I'm sure most have heard of this lighting company.
Any questions feel free to ask and as always, any input is always appreciated

I think to consensus was that these aren't much better than factory. Second is a lot of us plow snow and the plow blocks stock headlamps while moving around. So if we are spending money for lighting it is to put lights where we want them and the led sets available offer plenty of brighter light.

This is not the same set or site that was previously listed. I checked those out and they are certainly not bright. I am attempting to attach a photo of the light in my foreman that is from vvme.com. It is in the daylight which doesnt do it much justice but you can see the comparison between the HID and the factory bulbs in the lower lights.

alot of random stuff on that site.
Yea I'm not sure what that's all about but the HID's are a steal and are good quality. Haven't tried the other stuff on the site. I can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone as to the bulb size on the pioneer. I would love to post a pic of the difference in these bulbs and factory

Bulb 880 works. I put them in my pioneer and love them. I have put HID in tractors and atv's and like the way they work. With LED now they are not really needed but I still like my headlights white and bright not yellow and dim.
Where did you get your bulbs what brand and # are they look nice

3B Specialties
I have bought from this guy for years. He is local in Houston so I just meet him and get what I need. Had no problems with his stuff. I alway try to use the larger ballast and not the slim. The bulb color I use is 5k or 6k if you go higher up it gets weird looking like those blue/purple headlights.

Thanks for confirming bulb size PRINTMAN. Your lights look great. Thanks also for listing your site. I think i will stick to mine since I am familiar with their products but I bookmarked yours for reference and maybe to pick up some LEDs. Thanks again!
