Question on HIDs

Thinking about getting some HID's. I use my truck for work, and I really need better lighting out of the ranger. I have seen kits on ebay as low at 55 dollars, how do they compare with some of the pricier kits out there? I have tried the most expensive Silvania halogens out there, but still not happy. Let me know what you guys have and what i should purchase.

I have a $50 kit off ebay. About a year, i had a ballast go south, i think it was to not securing it and it was rattling around. they replaced it on warranty.

http://www.ddmtuning.com/ for good and decently price HIDs. I run them on my quad and my buddy has them on his GTO. The only problem is that you lose your high beam with their kits.

Are the kits that you guys are mentioning for high and low beams, or just lows?

HID lows are bright enough you dont really need your highs anyways. Plus, fog lights always help.

Remember that it may take a while. Last I heard they were behind on orders and my lights took about 3 weeks. I was in no hurry though.

I can barely see my fogs with the 6000k in the heads. I ordered a fog kit 2 nights ago, it should be here tomorrow.
