    Lower pointing down, or lower "not as bright"?
    If your truck doesn't have a headlight leveling knob on the left side of the steering wheel (laveled 1 thru 5) then you have to go to the healight and it should have a knob on it to adjust the level of it...

    Do both light move with the knob?
    If one of them doesn't, then it might be leveling motor that is not working on that light.
    If they both move but they're uneven, what I would do is set the selector to either the highest or lowest level, then disconnect the uneven headlight and manually adjust it to the right level. Then reconnect it again.

    They have a white knob on the back of the headlight housing, just turn thay with a socket, make sure you unplug the leveling motor first. 20170821_113219.jpg

    You can also adjust them while mounted in the truck with a long Phillips screw driver by inserting it in the funnel looking thing that leads to the adjustment screw

    Yes don’t adjust at the leveling motor, the motor can only go so much before it strips.

    Hey guys attempting to assemble everything but need someone to look over my crimp. Keep in mind this is the first time I have ever done this and don't want to do anymore unless I'm doing it correctly. Does this look like a good crimp? Is the exposed wire too long in the terminal? Do I need to crimp more of the pin? Also the slant piece (closest to the pin) does that need to be pushed down?

    Looks good, on the next one cut back 1mm on the exposed wire. Other than that not bad for a first timer. Crimp the seal alittle more tad

    Should I try to dig out the extra and cut it? Also I guess there is no need to crimp more closer to the pin and push down the slant metal?

    See fine print
    Just leave it alone and don’t push down on that slant. It needs to be where it’s at. Also give it a good tug to make sure your crimp is secure.

    2018 LED fog lights. Don’t mind the halogen yellows, I got the 2018 too but parts for my harness didn’t come in yet. Will install that soon.

    HELP
    Trying to do the first part of my headlight install and do the DRL delete mod. I'm having a hard time getting the flasher relay module out, any secrets besides pushing the little tab in? I planned on unpinning it and electrical taping it just in case I want to go back to stock. But at this point I might just cut the wire LOL. Can anyone confirm which wire it is on the left column? There's a couple of wires in there that look white. I think the gray one might be the fifth wire down on the 1st or left column? Can anyone help me out real quick or confirm which wire is the correct one. Any help would be great thanks fellas.
