Here are some pic's of a HID conversion kit, installs in about 15 min, light output is three times brighter and a cool 6000K color.

The offroad lamps have the ballast inside the housing for a clean look, I bought these as a kit, I had to paint, (Matching the body color), assemble etc. It was very time consuming but it was worth it, the lights are the brightest I have ever seen, w/a 35W HID bulb.

Tha same lights from Hella are $700 eachand the ballast mounts outside,
my lights are half that.


Also some pic's of a dual electric fan.

I got them from Jen @ http://suvlights.com/

Pretty cool guy, knows a lot about High Intensity Discharge.
Ended upgrading lights on all my cars, he even sold me a HID flashlight for camping that has the intensity of a searchlight..

He has lots of different styles most already assembled, I bought the kit because I wanted to paint them to match my H2 and have the ballast inside the housing, I paid about $450 per pair, beats the $700 a piece for the Hellas.

The retrofit HID kit is low beam only I got it from the same guy Jen @ suv lights, it was about $350 for everything, he also has a low beam/high beam set that is DOT approved but the light color isn't as violet/bluish, they are 3 times brighter than halogen though.

They are working in a projector Hi/Low HID kit for the H2 I saw the prototype and it has a very good light spread and the cutoff line is amazing ( no blinding oncomming cars).I'm waiting when they become available

As for the candlepower I have no clue, maybe Jen knows, but I can guarantee ,you have not seen brighter lights, (the Baja guys use these lights).

He also told me that he now has a 50W bulb/ballast that is 30% brighter but I have not seen them, I doubt you will need more lumens or candlepower than 4 of this lights!

hey Tony! I know what you are thinking " a real HID bulb in a flashlight", well I thought the same thing and now I carry a 35W automotive bulb on my trips, this light is so powerful and it has focus for spot or wide.
I must warn you that it took me a week to convince him to sell it, it was his personal flashlight, I don't know if you can buy it anywhere since police and military use it. here is a pic.http://imageevent.com/alexsocal/hummerpics?p=20&n=1&m=24&c=4&l=0&w=4&s=0&z=2

Also check out this guy his red H1 with more equipment than a Humvee. check out the lights, they are the same ones I have before painting. http://www.redhummer.com/mods/

Very nice! I did a Hella bi-xenon retrofit and love them!
Do you have any night PICS or a PIC with your lights shining against a gargage or wall?
I would like to see the beam pattern.
Thanks!

Beam pattern is exactly as stock since I'm using the stock headlamp reflector, the only upgrade is the light bulb, color of light & intensity, I lost high beam, but I rarely use it anyway, if I need more light flip a switch and have a lot more light than my high beams would give me.

I hope this helps.
