HID's, LED fogs & parking lamps- check!

Finished up the install on my lights.
So its officical, ALL of my exterior lights are LED's.

I went with DDM tunings 55w 10k HID kit with slim ballasts. Great kit, very easy to install.

CREE Fog lights, spot pattern 30*, 6 LED's per unit.

Samsung amber 3157 LED parking lamps.

Installed last winter- Recon tail lights, LED license plate bulbs, LED 3rd light assembly (Recon knock-off).


The amount of light gained from the HID's and LED fogs is incredible. Probably 3-4 times brighter than stock.
I reused the stock fog light brackets. Removed the OEM fogs, used a piece of aluminum angle to go across them, allowing easy mounting of the LED units.
The LED units only 4 amps combined, I just reused the OEM wiring.
I also have a 7" light bar on order, that will go in between the fogs.

The pics from inside the truck are lights off, park lamps only, fogs only, then everything all together.

Headlight questions... Did you go with the bi-xenon (hi-low) or single beam setup? Did you use relay to battery connection or direct power from headlight wiring?

Turn signals... Did you use a load balancer - resistor? If yes, where did you connect it?

I went with the bi-xenon, with a hi-low. The high beam doesnt add much light, it seems to scatter a lot, and throw a lot of light up, and to the side.
I used the supplied relay harness. It is a very well made harness. Super easy to install. I just ditched the fuse holder they supplied, and used a beefier holder, with a water proof connection.

No resistors. I swapped out the flasher for the EP-27L. eBay has them for $14. I didnt need it with the Recon tails. But as soon as I went to the Samsung 3157's up front I had the hyper blinkers.

Forgot to mention- I also installed CREE flood lights in the rear, 4 leds per unit. Mounted to the bottom of the hitch tube.
Crazy bright. Freakin lights up the neighborhood.

I didnt drive the truck to work today. Ill grab a pic or two tmrw.

I used these in the front:



This is the one going in the middle of those two:



These are the back up lights:




The front fogs were $50 each roughly.
The 7" bar was $52.
The rear lights were $60 for the pair IIRC.

can you post some pics up close with the lights off?
im stuck between these and a 20" light bar,
I like the factory fog light look a lot better then that 20" setup and besides this would be a way cheaper route,
