I'm assuming you bought P46s the DDEs that come with P46s are built into the headlights, the headlights have a recessed groove where the DDEs fit into, standard DDE kits which use clips will NOT work. Sorry but you wont be able to change the DDEs on your P46 kit.

Might I ask why? The P46s come with Predator Chromiums as far as I know.

The headlights i bought from modcity have shiety halos as you can see from the picture. they barely light up and half of the halos dont come on at all thats why i was interested in getting information on if i can swap the old halos out with some predator chroms or dde. just not trying to ruin a set of headlights prying them open n such to see if i can swap out the shiety halos you feel me?! just slang these and put up a couple more bills and get the jlevi p46's with the good halos installed already?

Uh, are they Depo P46s? If they are they should have come with Predator Chromiums, why not contact TheModCity.com and get the problem sorted out? Sounds like a bad connection for the rings or maybe just defective rings. No sense scrapping the entire headlight unit if it can be fixed.
