The XGT`s are a fixed focus type of housing. I am led to beleive the same housing as the gas style lights are used for the XGT`s. I have them on my fourby and they are brilliant, I enjoy driving at night just so I get to use them. They really do turn night into day. I bought mine 18 months ago and the best price I could get was $380 a pair, no idea now.
I have heard the striker model on bad corrogations can unscrew themselves and fall off the mount.
Cheers Chard.

Roachie

So the XGT's are the ones that dont have adjustable spread and beam,which are the ones that you can adjust.

The adjustable ones are the 240 Blitz and the 170 Stalker (or is it "Striker"??)

I used to have a pair of the Blitz lights and found it better to just keep them wound in tight and get the spread beam by buying the difuser type lense cover.

That is how you can do it with the XGT body as well. I think there are a couple of different "grades" of difuser covers.... The one I had before was half (the centre section was difused and the outer was plain); but I reckon they also sell a full difuser cover as well.

BTW, the potential problem with the Blitz and their smaller brothers are that some ar-se-hole can come along anytime they like and, without any tools, just unwind your whole lense body/ies in about 10 seconds flat and leave you with a useless stalk with a bulb (or they can swipe or break the bulb too if they like)......

At least if you have the XGTs, they have to have a couple of spanners or sockets etc and be prepared to spend several minutes undoing them (with the associated noise of steel clanging against steel etc....

Hey mate - just got a set last week and paid $480 for 2. I phoned just about every 4x4 retailer in SA to find that price. They charged $90 to install them.

As mentioned they are an awesome light. The 900 metre rating is very accurate as they truly do turn night to day.

I wouldnt go the Blitz's as i have heard that corrugated roads will cause them to break - therefore the XPDs are worth the extra cash.

Buy a set mate - you wont regret it!!

GD,

If you already have the Blitz....why not turn them into HIDs....

MUCH MUCH better than standard Lightforce lights.... I've done it to my XGTs and you can also do it to the Blitz.

Here is a link:

Greendog,

Roachie is exactly right. I have installed 50W HIDs in my XGTs and they are absolutely awesome. I have used all sorts of lights over the years and this set up is the best. Not just by a small way, they are the best by a mile!

Bonz,

If you have a gander at the link

http://hid.isclever.com

It'll provide you with the contact details of the bloke who has drawn up plans (about 18 pages of instructions, diagrams and photos etc). I bought the instructions for the XGTs but have since given them away; they cost me $10-.

I think he charges $15- for the Blitz instructions, but that also includes the cost of the new mounting pad that he provides you (with the XGT there are no new components required).

Once you've bought the instructions, it's then a matter of purchasing a "suitable" HID kit. This is where the fun starts. There are just sooooo many kits on ebay or through other on-line retailers.

You need to decide what seller, what wattage (EG: 35, 42, 50 or 55 are the ones of which I am aware), what colour temperature (EG: 4300k, 5000k, 6000k, 8000k etc etc). You need to do some research beforehand (once again there is a LOT of info on that link I've provided, but also other sites; GOOGLE is your friend), regarding the colour temperature. It is not necessarily a case of the higher the number, the better the result. From what I've learned, 6000k is as high as you would ever want to go as it's the same colour temp as the SUN (as I recall).

Hope this helps....and for you too GD..... I would be pleased to help you with the conversion job, but you'd have to get the instructions off Dave Maunder and purchase the right size/type of HID kit to suit your needs.

I'm always a bit dubious about helping somebody do a job on their truck or gear....if I stuff it up I'd be duty-bound to make good the damage.....whereas if I stuff something of my own up, I can just bin-it and not tell anybody!!!!! hahahaha
