Thread: Headlights?????

  1. #1

    Default Headlights?????

    I put a 2 1/2" leveling kit on my truck and my headlights are too high. Everyone flashes their brights because they think mine are on bright.
    Today I put som 33x 12.50 Kumho tires so I'm sure its even worse.
    How do you adjust the lights.

    If you have the Owners Manual....in the Maintenance Section,it has a step by step with diagrams on how to adjust your Headlights.

    On the older trucks there of usually a screw that adjusts then I believe.

    Replace then with HIDs.....that should resolve everything.

    I just tell um to suck it up! I have a 6" suspension with 3" Body on 35's and every car I see at night gets a rear view mirror full of light. They are constantly adjusting there rear view. If cars on the other side of the road are flashing you you may just need to adjust your driver side light more to the right side instead of the beam height. I bought a G6 for my wife and she was always getting flashed at night with her low beams on..went home and adjusted the driver side light in more and no more flashes since! Good Luck!
