$99 from Schucks/Kreger Auto parts.

Trent I believe they're 4300k...

No chance of them behind the grille. The 6in ones barely fit.

I wonder if I should HID my PIAA's... Do they make the h3 short bulb in HID? Hmmmm.

yep. Hurry before the sale stops... Call your local krager/schucks and if they don't have em, goto their site and have them ship the lights to your nearest store.

Great lights for the price. Kragen Auto Parts sells them for a little over $100 a piece. They have the 6" and 4" HIDs. And yes they put out A LOT of light. I plan on getting 3 of these for the front of my truck.

Actually they sell a 7in and a 4in.

They're worth the money. But they need a relay. You'll have to do that yourself. Light output is a lil better for the 7in ones... And it's weird, because the difference in price from the 4" to the 7" is $5. So why not go 7in? lol

Yeah I'd use at least a 30A relay for these. Just to be safe.

Wow those are bright. Are you using them to replace your high beams when you convert the heads to HID's? I was thinking about doing something similar but I'm concerned about having to turn them on and off frequently which I've read is hard on them.

Yeah, power flickering is bad for HID ballasts. You can turn them on and off if you make sure you let them fully warm up before shutting them off and give time before turning them back on. But small busts of voltage tear apart the ballasts.
