    So,

    I have a crack in my head light. It is the TYC glass. So at this point because I have a HID set up I'm not sure what to do. Can you pull a new housing apart and just do a glass swap. The factory told me no but I'm not buying it. Lets hear it and some options on this issue.

    So the short story is, I had a new HID kit in the truck. All good right. Looks sweet. Flying rock went through the glass on the drivers side. So i either have to rebuild the head light assembly or change out the glass...

    Says the one who is not doing it.... Not an easy take but it can be done. I'm still thinking about what to do.

    I'm joking, man. What's the cost difference between the two?

    I'm going to buy another housing and heat the glass up to break the seal on the glue. Do a swap that way. We will see how it goes.
