After market HID conversion...explaination.

So I am looking to upgrade my headlights... Considering Truck-lites, JW Speakers, LED, HID etc etc... And obviously there's a lot of information and MIS-information here and on the World Wide Web. I found this website and the articles that I've read and they make sense based on science and the reponse of the human eye to light. I read his information on Fog lamps and how the human eye works...makes perfect sense. I personally decided to go with a Driving light rather than Fog lamps.

Anyway, I found this link regarding HID conversions... and thought I'd share it. Those of you interested in LEARNING may find it interesting... and I'm sure the haters will hate. But I'm gonna provide this information anyway because I found it informative and thought it may help others with the same questions I had. Read it and make your own personal conclusion...Hope it helps someone make an Informed decision.

Here is a link to other links...some that we as Jeepers may find helpful!

Stern's lighting website is a very good source of information and he has been around for some time. I agree that he is knowledgeable, as one would expect since he is a consultant on this subject. However, sometimes I question if he sometimes has a conflict of interest between his analysis and the products he sells.

In any case, his site is definitely worth reading for anyone making a choice about automotive light options. Another good source of information of general information on light sources is the CandlePower forum.

Thanks for Candlepower forum...hadn't heard of it. Yeah I think everyone regardless of how hard they try to be non bias has an agenda, Conflict or not it all comes down to having as much information as possible in order to make an Informed decision.

Sinister, truck lites are awful. Been behind them, not bright at all and have an x pattern with a bright spot dead center. So cross those off your list.
