Installation Time: Afternoon

Upgraded from DV8s, won't go back!
First off, before anything else, I would like to mention the instructions for installing the halos. Yes, the instructions are poor and do not mention how to install the halo, but NO, you do not need to take it to the mechanic to do. I think the instructions do not mention it is because there are multiple ways you can wire the halos.
I'm a 27 year woman, and I figured it out in a couple of hours. There are two exposed wires coming off the headlight housing, the red wire is for your DRLs and the green wire is for your turn signals. I kept saying to myself, green is made of blue and YELLOW to remind me they were the turn signals. I bought red and green 16 gauge wires, wire connectors, heat sink, wire cutters, zip ties, and quick splices. The quick splices were the most important thing, because I could tap into the turn signal wires without cutting them. At your turn signal housing there are three wires, from out to in, they are white, white, and black. The outermost white wire is your turn signal, the middle white is your DRL and the black wire is the ground. Connect the green wire to the outside white, and the red wire to the middle white and the halo will be installed. The rest of the light install is simple plug and play.
I had DV8 LED lights before and there were complications (high beam wouldn't work). Extreme Terrain were remarkable and provided excellent customer service. Our agreed upon solution was changing out the DV8s for these, and I love them! They fit perfectly in the factory mount, which the DV8s did not do, so immediately I knew I had a better product. Even with adding more work with the halo installation, I say it was well worth it!!!
