    Just read your post. Great write up. Damn, those fogs really do light up the sides! I also noticed you're a fellow Keystoner. The salt sucks!

    Thanks. Yeah they do, like the "Red Dragon" in the movie Old School, they aren't exactly street legal, and I refuse to be that guy blinding people.

    It does, I would like to buy a beater and I can't help but want to travel down south to get something old with miles that isn't covered in rust.

    I think it's important to mention that the install was relatively painless. This is not meant to be a tutorial but rather a highlight of the aforementioned additional step. By now most forum goers know how to remove the headlights. If not, it's easy to find. Once you get to that point, with exception of an added step (running a harness into the fuse box) it's like putting your headlights back in. This was the first time I have had to do this. They fit of the lights is like oem.

    Swap this fuse with the harness plug in

    Run the harness inside of this "thingamabob". It disconnects from the fuse box. Then remove the tape and look at it. You'll be able to figure out the plastic clips to separate it.

    Harness plugged in

    Ensure harness is nested in with other wiring and snap it back together. Reseat it back into the box.

    Taped back up

    Harness secured in housing and connected to fuse box. The lid the goes on and you then route your harness. I ran mine between the fuse box and battery. It then fishes down to the driver's side and across the front of the truck near radiator and behind the grill to the passenger side. Unlike so many other harnesses out there, this one does not contain an over abundance of length. It's just the right length. I recommend "dry fitting" before zip tying it. I had to make a couple of adjustments.

    Yes they do. There are motors and a connection. They work perfectly!

    I wonder if this is what's needed for the 18'+ harness to clear the fault? Interesting, there is 2 pigtails on the back of mine that can switch sequential to flash turn signals

    The fault code is appearing because pin#3 on your original 8 pin headlight harness is looking for a input "status" signal from the headlamp. I'm guessing the Morimoto headlamps don't have a wire pinned for that function.

    Did you figure out sequential yet? I haven’t received mine in the mail yet and looking though install directions from Morimoto online and it’s not clear how to connect it. Maybe it seems like you just connect the two “sequential” connections together to toggle it on? That’s all I can think of without actually having them here with me

    Ignore the green wire pics about sequential signals. Our model year will not use it. If you go to pages 6 and 7 of the install guide, the plugs labeled "sequential turn signal connectors" which are orange and purple wires, is where the magic happens. Mine came connected. When disconnected, the sequential signal fires up. If you do not have LED turn signal tails, the sequential will work for you. I hooked up my stock bulb and they worked perfectly. Still waiting on a work around for mine (LED tails).

    Awesome!!! I can’t wait until they get here lol. I haven’t done aftermarket tears so glad I didn’t yet. Ima follow your thread and see if find a fix for it. I’m sure Morimoto will prob have some kind of harness to add to correct it since they are so new

    Get a load resister. I installed one when I was using my VLED triton V3s. I also have led taillights. When I installled the Morimoto XBs I left the load resister installed. My sequential turns work like they’re supposed to.

    Thanks. I actually ordered the resistors from VLED earlier this morning. I have Amazon cheaper coming today but second guessed using them since they get so hot. Not worth it. Can't wait to get the sequentials working. Even without, these headlights are amazing! Thanks again.

    How much adjusting did you have to do vertically? Mine are ridiculously low, just seeing if anyone else ran into this.
