there is no extra wiring , they are just a simple remove old lites and replace with new set < just remebering that u will need the XR indercaters aswell cause thay have the park lights in them aswell .

there is extra wiring involved. the xr lights use a single bulb in each light.the outbord ones are low beam only and the inbord ones are high beam only. if you wire them up i bet when you hit high beam the outbord lights go out.they have to be wired so they stay on.

the twinlights (after market) plug n play.

headlaghts and grille ect will bolt straight on. you will need to change the bonnet lock aswell as the lever is in a different position so you can open it through the grille. and yes you do need to do a bit of wiring to get the low beam to stay on.

we have a complete set up with new genuine flashers for $1000
