ddm tuning?

I was thinking of going with these guys for some his. I know my 06 has one bulb for hi/low beams. So I know if need the h13 bulb. I also was wondering if I would have the issue my cousin has with his dmaxx? Low beams are nice. Switch to highs and its like there's no lights at all. Like they have to warm up before they actually come on. And there very slow to do so. What all do I need to get for this to not happen? Thanks for any help

I cannot speak for ddm but I can speak about your cousins lights having to warm up when swapped over from low to high or vice versa. He experiences this because his duramax has two seperate bulbs. You should not experience that same problem with yoirs. I installed some hids from bfxenon in my cousins f150 which also has a single bulb for both patterns. And his worked perfectly!

Haven't done them on a truck yet, but put the slim kit on my Lincoln. Never really had any delay time, and my brights worked without issue. Easy kit to wire in, and worked great for the 3 years I ran it before selling the car last summer. Was a huge improvement over stock HIDs.

I will go with them again when I do a set on the truck.

DDM have a dual bulb option where the low beam is the HID and the high is a regular halogen Bulb you can still flash high beams and such

Been using DDM for years and have recommended to many people. Cheap price, and quality is dead on. The high beams aren't really an HID filament per se, my high's are instantly bright when I switch over..more or less a bi-xenon bulb.
