I installed the xenonfactory 5000K HID kit (9006 low beam) this past weekend in my girlfriends 02 EXT. She just purchased the EXT 2 weeks ago, and it had the tell tale sign of hazy headlights. Once the dealer replaced them (under warranty) I installed the HID kit. All I can say is WOW. Huge difference. Almost looks like I have candles in my 02 housings!! LOL. As soon as I’m done with the Eradispeed +2 rotor install on mine, I’ll get some side by side pics of our trucks at night so you can see the difference. I would recommend the kit to anyone thinking about buying one. Very easy to install, the hardest part was figuring out where to mount the ballasts. I did have to adjust the headlamps down on the driverside, and slightly right on the passenger side. She likes them so much that she is splitting the cost for a set for my Lade. :)

Regards

As long as the truck is still under the 50K factory warranty, you should not have any problems. Just to make sure I printed out some threads from this forum about the “hazy headlight” issue. When I talked to the service advisor I basically told him it was a safety issue with the decrease in light output (not to mention they looked like shit). I didn’t have much resistance at the dealer I went too. I have read of others trying to get it done around the US and dealers acting like a bunch of asses. Guess it just depends on the dealer. I had it done to my Lade when I bought it 2 years ago, and also to my girlfriends EXT this past weekend.

I’ll post up some pictures this weekend of the difference.
