HID...plain and simple

So im wanting to do HID conversion on my truck. fog lights....hi and lo beam.

I have read many posts saying the harnesses arent long enough etc etc.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of which kit, from what company is the easiest most direct install? Ive heard of lights flickering and all kinds of garbage...

I would go with Retro Solutions. I have their 55W digital 8K kit for my hi/lo and had no problems with the install and they work great!
I'm sure their fogs will be just as good.

I just got a 8000K last night from my distributor.We finally got rain so i have to wait till its dry to put them in.I already have a 6000K in the headlights from my mustang that is over 2 years old.They are just a no name brand as they all come from China anyway.

I've had my HID's in stock 03' housings for over a year and never been flashed by oncoming traffic. Just have to aim them correctly.

hahah I like it when they have to shield their faces with their hands...LOL..and that's with no HID's, just stock bulbs..wiring in HID's in the fogs this weekend. Got the fogs mounted (truck didn't come with fogs to begin with), and hid bulbs and ballasts mounted in, wiring it to the upfitter switch this week/ weekend.
