Anyone familiar with using the Hoppy headlight aimer. I got one for I would say an unreasonable price but it appears to be complete. I watched many videos on youtube and it looked like it would be a neat tool to have. Just about every vehicle I have has out of alignment headlights too. I wanted to see how accurate this tool is. I just need some answers on setting it up that don't appear in the instruction manual.

I did read this and sorry I had no idea what it was nor had I ever seen one.

Was hoping someone would chime in "yeah I have 2 in my tool box" but so far no luck!

Yeah that's the kit I have. It seemed to work well on my Ranger but on my Dakota it made the alignment horrible. I have to redo my Dakota but the Ranger is the best it's been since the truck was new. I will say it's hard to adjust the screw on the Ranger even with the special tool because there's not enough room when the tool is placed on the end of it. I had to use some pliers. Luckily the lights were new so they weren't all rusty.
