    so two questiions
    1. does it look good still?
    2. when u say u replaced the fog light do you mean in the fog light, or u replaced the actual headlight with a foglight?
    ok three questions actually... how do you think this will look i dunno, i love the look and im desperate for that type of look

    1. I think it looks awsome, and still does. I've haven't heard any complantes from him; and he is a VERY established member. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43676&highlight=headlights

    2. In most pontiacs there is a round foglight that the OEM lights can be replaced with the HELLA OPTILUX fog lamps with. I wouldn't suggest replacing the whole headlamp with a fog lamp (That would look WIERD, LOL)

    3. I think it would look awsome in just about any vehicle that dosen't have them. I'd say try it out, you'd obviously be the first one with the explorer like it. Feel free to join up on the club over there and shoot sn:1993_SLE a Private Message in regards to that post.

    Actually here is a guy with your style Explorer (2002) who did it

    http://www.ejponce.com/hidretro/

    Do homework at www.hidplanet.com. Your going to have to get a full projector kit ($400) and mount them inside your housing which means opening it up and mounting everything. You can get HID rings put around the projectors if you wish. I didnt because its so tight in there and I didnt want to mess with it all. Your headlights are bigger so it should work fine

    Well they do not make projector set ups for explorers so you will have to make your own

    You going to have to mount BMW projectors inside of your housing then hook up halo eye rings up to the headlight switch. You can mount the rings around the projectors to get the look. That link I posted shows someone mounting projectors in your style headlight. HIDPLANET.com is where you will get the best info. It took me about a month of planning and hw before I did mine.

    Are these stock fogs with added on halos or did you buy the halos and fogs all in one??

    I want this to go with my HID system since I dont use my fogs but the only halo deals I can find are at wal mart and the glass is tinted ricer blue

    Where did you buy those? They look sweet! Do they use h3 bulbs?

    Try an Ebay search for Hella Optilux. They usually have a few on there.

    I didn't do this to my truck. I did a set for an 02 4-door. With Elglo wire.
