Check out the Lighting DIY thread. There are at least 2 or 3 good ones. @webby even sells good ones for an excellent price if you want to retrofit yourself.

Sorry i just saw this now, yea you can pop the HIDs right in with no other mods needed, make sure to put the bulbs in upside down so that the beam doesnt sway to the right

there doesn't seem to be any good install videos or walk throughs for wiring up the LED bar. Currently have the lights installed but am striking out on successfully wiring them up to an auxiliary power source. My goal is to have them run independently when ever the car is on (regardless whether my actual lights are on or not.) I spliced both onto 14 ga wire at the moment with no sure path into the cabin. Any help or pointers is greatly appreciated.

You'll be essentially following this diy to wire the led independently instead of the fog wire.
