I have a hi/low kit for my heads so I'm guessing my low beams are 35w and my hi's are 55w. So should I go with a 35w or 55w kit for my fogs? I'm thinking 35w.

I've been told my headlights don't bug people....it's my fogs that are blinding.


I'd go DDM or Autoluminate. Those are the two I suggest to buy from. Get slims as they're known to be more reliable than the big ones and the obvious easier to find a spot to shove 'em. lol.. Even though my big's are still runnin' strong 3+ years in.

And your truck's a lot higher than mine. I doubt my fogs will bother people that much.

DDM is going to be $55 where the other kit is $40. Is DDM really worth the extra cash?

so Im wondering, how will the 35w Apexcone Raptor HID Kit work with my stock 99 housing ?
Ive been considering doing this for some time, but my headlamps are super bright as it is, but if these will give me more light in a stock housing then I would go for them.
looking at 35w - 6k - 9007 hi/lo as I do a lot of night driving on empty backroads, with quite a bit of fauna both domestic and wild.

its basically identical to the set Im considering, except Im going with a 9007 bulb.
I think as long as its recommended specs and it adds to the brightness of your lamps it should be a good kit.
here is a link to find your specific bulb match if you want to make sure.
