You dont NEED projectors.. i guess they would help.

The kit for your truck is whatever bulb your running in a 94.. which i think is the small as mine which is a 9007.. i would have to go look. I would recommend a 4300k - 6000k for light and 8000+ for color.

55w 40% brighter than 35w.. but i have heard it kills peoples eyes more so than the 35Watts already do. My 35W are bright as ****. 55w in a reflector housing would own peoples eyes im sure.

And DONT run 55w in fogs they will melt the housing.

I run 35 w heads and soon to be 35w fogs.

Well here is what i find.

I find my 35watt 6000k low beam kit puts out more light than my moms cobalts highs and is equal to my dads 1500's highs.

I just am afraid of owning a cop on accident.. utah has ALOT of cops and most are D!CKS.

But you will have to let me know how 55w go cause i may get a set for my heads too .. maybe some 6000k and 8000k 55w. then ill have a blue and yellow output. which is yum.

I had my switches in the center console. So I figured if I had time to flash my highs then lift up the armrest open the center console and start flipping switches with out you dimming your lights you deserved what you got.

Had a guy follow me for 5 miles one night. he had one low beam out so he was driving with his highs on. I passed him then come back over and boom bright lights so I flipped my lights on and off real quick twice, like you would your high beams just to let some one know they have them on. Well he turned them off and right back on so I turned mine back on and as he slowed down to get rid of me I slowed down to stay with him. He finally turned off. I just hope he had some damn good sunglasses on!

If you get a low beam only kit, then you no longer have any high beams. It completely replaces the stock bulbs. I would go with the 4000 something kits. Never get anything higher than 6,000.
