I got mine from Autoluminate on ebay.

I just bought the 3000k from DDMtuning though, we'll see how good they really are soon!

59.99, I was about to order with DDM but it turns out to be more expensive, screw that. I'll be getting both kits from autoluminate

I'm never in fog and snow anymore, should I still go with 3000k?

Well I think if you want the yellow color 3000k if you want matching heads and fogs then go with the blue color ranges.

I like the 6000 - 10000k heads with 3000ks fogs like this:

Same here. I just got the 3000k from Autoluminate. I wonder if I should get a relay kit for the fogs, I have one for the heads. Opinions?

Oh yeah i dont know anything about the relay kits. My only guess would be that its for heat and not melting the wires?

No clue. Some people have had the problem about one light cutting out on them and the relay fixed it for them, I figured I'd go ahead and install it at the beginning so I don't have to worry about that problem. It actually made the install easier IMO, only had to use one of those stupid headlight connector adapter things.

Guys:

My turnsignals, and running lights are plugin LED's (Amber)
I have the exact same oznium 38" strip as jaycheetwood
I have 6000K HID, both foglights and headlights

I took all of my photos at night, with NO FLASH. The HID's are so bright compared to the LEDs so it make it look like I have no amber in the headlights when the exposure is set to work at night. In reality they are amber (you can clearly see this in the photo at top where I have the headlights off)

The hood was also not latched in the first picture, and this is why you have light escaping between the grill and the hood.

I like that a lot. If my truck wasnt green I would put sweet lights in it but there is really no lights that complement the green lol. In my town they would stop you for a second for that. Only time I would light em is when im parked.

Looking good none the less.
