Very nice! I bet people move out of your way when you come up behind them! Try 3k, they work wonders in rain and foggy weather. Truck looks good though!

I wanted a High Intensity Discharge kit which is a very cool light and better visibility especially during night driving. I opted to go with the single beam HID kit too and love it, they are cheaper on ebay but I wanted a warranty so I got it here Sealed Beam Headlight Kits , or you can try one of the vendors. Also some of the forum sponsors selling Headlight Kits usually have a sale going on. Either way its a great system, and very easy to install.

Stop trying to spam those overpriced hids kits. Those are the same DDM ones as the ones I have, you can even see it says DDM in the picture.

Same ones, $120 cheaper

actually, if i would have known i woulda bought the ddm slim kit, those are basically the same ones i have, i did end up puttin relays on both kits and have no issues with em, befor the relays i had a hard time gettin both fog lights on and every now and then only one headlight would come on..;.... i highly recomend puttin relays on em
