Best place to buy HID Conversion Kit?

Besides Ebay, where is everybody buying their HID Conversion kits? I know i need just the low beam kit, and i searched up a handful of websites. I'm curious, if anybody ordered them anywhere other than ebay, where? I would imagine most of the makers are about the same quality, but are some brands better than others for our trucks?

Thanks!

ddmtuning.com be prepared to wait a week or so til it ships, but the price is good and the lifetime warranty is nice.

I ordered the slim ballast kit from DDM last Monday, They shipped out my order that wednesday. ALOT faster than I was expecting after reading some of the post on here about DDM and delayed shipment.

Are the ddm a pretty plug and play swap? I want to do this but don't want to have to run all kinds of relays and in line fuses and what not...

Are these the type you plug into the stock wiring and go?

Pretty much, you'll have to mount the ballast somewhere close.

That's not bad. So the ballast goes into the stock harness and then the bulbs plug into the ballast?

the ballast basically intercepts the the power coming from the stock harness. It then relays the power to he HID so you don't bust it. I don't know the specifics on the electrical part, but it works great.

The bulb has a wire than runs to the ballast
