    I jusrt got another 2 bulbs for my front headlights and have a question. A few months ago i installed 2 bulbs in my reverse lights, drilled the holes ran wires no problem. Now i have to do the fronts and i got a little scared to drill the headlights. I want to put them in the same houseing that the parking lights are but im pretty sure there r 2 layers of plastic. How have you guys installed them into the headlight??

    If the head light assembly is like my 07 what I did was drill a larger hole thru the exterior plastic shell then drilled the proper size hole for the led / strobe unit then assembled and then get a plastic or metal plug / cap to fit the outter shell hole make a small hole to run wires thru and then seal it up with silicone NOTE this is where and how I did mine back in 07 and I have not had any problems and my LED Strobe heads, and mine are in the headlights
    Hope this helps

    I drilled in right next to the turn signal light bulb. The picture with it flashing (2nd picture) doesn't do it justice, it looks great. I put the strobe light where it is because I didn't want to see it just in case I would ever sell the vehicle.

    So when you say you just drilled into the outter shell, you mean that you didnt drill the chrome inside the lights?

    I dropped the headlight off at a shop to get drilled, I had them off with the bit on my drill then i got scared b/c if i cracked something or messed something up those headlights arent cheap. They charged me 40 to drill the holes and install the bulb, so for 40 bucks i couldnt go wrong
