I have a question about these HIDS:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/XENON...8584QQtcZphoto

1. If I was to buy them and put them in my truck do I only have lo beams or do I have low HID, and regular high beams?

2.Which is better dual hi/lo or true hi/lo?

The true Hi/lo is better where it's just the one bulb with the solenoid.. But again, it's just something else to go wrong... I don't trust those.

You only have 1 bulb in your truck. It's a 9007. Just run the single beam HID and you'll be fine. You won't have any regrets either.

You really don't... Take that extra money you'd spend on the hi/lo kit and get some lights for the front... Some 6in lights if you really want to see further than the HIDs are going to get you.

I have a set of single beam 6000k that I got off of ebay. Have been waiting for spring to install them. I just went with the single beam because I very rarely use my high beams anyways. I also just put on a westin sportsman and have a set of KC 100w slimlights that I am going to mount on it

Can the stock fog light housings handle the extra heat without a problem?

I am looking to get a set of 4300k or 6000k for the fogs after I do the headlights.

HIDs DO NOT burn hotter than halogens!! Halogens burn hotter than HIDs!!!

Captain Obvious has proof of this. And it's been posted here before.

how much are HID fogs? I wanted to get some 130w KC highlites but if I'm going to go with HID head lights I'd like to do the same for a set of fogs to.

???? I just said that I don't have fogs. I wanted to know if I could buy HID fogs. I was going to buy a set of KC 130w fogs but I if I could get HID fogs I'd rather get them.

No...i have never seen OEM Ford Ranger HID fogs, or any other make/model replacement HID fogs.....

Ok.......are you talking auxilary off road lighting? Like Hella 500s, KC slimlites, KC daylighters, PIAA's, etc....???

YES, KC and other brands have HID aux off road lighting systems....but hella expensive. KC's take a H3 bulb, as do many other off road lighting manufacturers, and there are HID conversion kits, like what is discussed in this thread, that you could get for an H3 to convert say a KC 130w Slimlite to HID. But nobody here has done it yet....don't even know if it's possible.
