Anyone have HIDs ??

Looking at maybe going with some hids for the headlights and foglights to gain some extra visibility. Just wondering if there is anything i should know about putting hids in these trucks or if it's easy. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I have 6000k HIDs and I love them! My recommendation - make sure you get a relay kit to install them correctly off the bat - I didn't and had to redo them later on. Not too hard to install - I would recommend pulling the headlights instead of trying to jam your hands down behind the front clip. You'll have to remove the drivers side battery and battery tray to get enough room to get to the bulbs if you don't pull the headlights. Not too bad to install though.

Any one have the Bi/kits? If so how quickly do the bulbs change from dim to bright; Can you still flash people?

i have the 6k hid lights with the hi-low capability. i didnt wire them up... hids are bright enough so brights werent a high priority imo... oh and you only need 1 relay. and a fuse if you wanna do it the right way.

SCT X4
EGR/DPF delete

I have the bi/xenon 5000k 55w, but don't really ever use bright. You can still flash to pass, just hold the switch for a second or so. I did buy the relay but still have it sitting on the shelf as I don't have DRLs. Installation took about an hour. I would def recommend a DDM kit, the are cheaper than most, but the quality is great. I was really surprised when I got my kit.
