They aim just like your aiming the ones you have now. I would get a car parked in front of your truck just like it would be at a drivethru or stopped behind someone at a red light. Now aim the lights down so that the line where the light stops at is just at the back seat of the car in front of you. This way you will not blind anyone. You can make adjustments over time from that starting point.

Nice thing about the retro hids is they dont have the light scattering and bleed over problems halogen setups have. It will be a defined line where the light simply stops at. So it makes aiming them a breeze.

Just go as low as you can, enough so you can still see good..... otherwise you will get flashed all the time.

Or pulled over in Northern Cali pulling a trailer and told to stop at the next town and have some drinks by the officer....

I get flashed by everything. I have them in my fogs too. I have become acustomed to it though. Even got flashed by an eighteen wheeler the other night.

I aimed them like normal. Park on level ground, 25' from a wall. Measure from the ground to the center of the headlamp (little nub) and then make a line 4" lower on the wall. When I aimed them, instead of having the center of the beam at the mark, I had the top of the beam there. So far no flashers.

I get flashed but it's not my fault my truck sits higher than there little car. I also have some ebay cheapies in my fogs so that doesn't help the cause either.

I did something similar as well... 12.5" lift and so far no flashers...

Ive talked to Todd at Retro, ive told him about PSN and that a lot of guys on here run his kits. I was trying to talk him into becoming a site sponser on here because anytime someone asks about HIDs most of the guys tell the guy asking to go Retro-Solutions.
