Now for all of us PRE-2013 truck owners, I have put together a new H13 Harness that will plug and play with the new OEM led lighting. All thanks to my Dad, which has access to Alldata which found out all the info for this new harness.

The new harness is available through my website and in the near future I will be purchasing a set of the 2013 headlights for upgrade modifications.

Here are the part numbers for the new OEM HID Headlights:
Chrome:
DL3Z-13008-AB
DL3Z-13008-AC
Dark FX2, FX4, Raptors:
DL3Z-13008-BB
DL3Z-13008-CB


Stay tuned
Do you still have these lights? I know thread is bit old but I will get them if available.. Waiting for reply thanks in advance

I would like to upgrade my 09. I have HID's in my Kenworth, and they are not projectors. Still a giant improvement over the stock 4"x6" Halogen. The KW is running Hella housings with HID bulbs. Seems to work pretty good. Why can't I do the same with my 150?

Are you asking why you can't run hids in your stock halogen reflectors? Because they cause glare. They blind on coming traffic. The focal points of a 9008 filament is totally different than that of an arc of a hid capsule. HID projectors are designed for HIDs.
So you're either going to have to retrofit or use the stock 2013 HID projector headlights with the harness tuxddoblack made.

What will all this cost me? Would I be better off using the 2013 housings and the harness from tuxddoblack or having my housings modified and going from there?
Winter is quickly approaching here, which means 19 hours of DARK by December. It's not so bad running in the snow when you're the only rig on the road, but when it is dumping and you're in traffic.....well

Cool

I took my time an searched a long time for a nice set of OEM HID headlights. I finally got a set from a guy on Ebay for 950.00. That was an extremely good price. They were advertised as being new and a complete set. And they were. I got lucky. Then I purchased the harness, with shipping, for about 138.00. So I spent 1,088.00. It was well worth the wait. The OEM HID's are much better than the Halogens. I was considering doing the upgrade to the evox-r projectors, but I'm happy with these for now.

A retrofit will be cheaper and net you better output depending on the projector you use. The only disadvantage is you have to cut and install these projectors and they won't be OEM.
The advantage to the 2013 lights are they are plug and play with the harness, and they are OEM (legal).
Disadvantage would be the cost. For a thousand bucks you can do the best projector out there and pocket some of the money..

Yes a retrofit is technically illegal but it's about 10x safer then a pnp hid kit in your reflector bucket.. Most cops don't care tho (at least around me)

If it were me, I'd get some LS460s, CBIs, and a nice OEM harness and pocket the change.

I would like to know more about this. I wouldn't want to be the one sawing into a set of housings, or needing to splice wiring.

Shouldn't need to splice wires. If you do a retro they make harnesses to not splice. If you do the OEM route tuxedo black has a harness so no splicing there..
Sawing up the housings aren't bad. Just take your time.

If your truck is halogen then yes you need the harness if you are going with the oem projector housing.

You need the harness to make a non-HID truck compatible
