I looked at them but have been reading reviews on them and alot of them are stating horrible customer service. And that they are slow to ship


However, doing some research all I need is a kit for a 9007 bulb correct?

If so This one should work correct?

I went with HouseofHID.com, A local shop is a reseller for them and gave me a better price than their site.

http://www.houseofhid.com/product_in...products_id=60


I ended up going 6k, took me about hour and half to install, but an hour was just trying to figure out where to mount the ballasts and how to run the wires lol.


Really glad I did it. I will take pics this weekend.

get the dual beam, i HATED not having a high beam. It sucks when you need to flash your lights and you dont have a high beam. I have the dual beam in my F150 and wouldnt go back

Nope..either way it will suck.

It's the plug & play HID's that produce the horrible light scatter and glare!

$39 HID's give you $39 results. If you expect anymore than that, you probably believe a $99 electric supercharger will give you 50 HP.
