55watt HID kit

Anyone running these on there trucks? What's the best way to run them as far as wiring goes with a relay?

Thanks
Rob

If I had the time and money I would so do that!! That looks awesome! But I don't unfortunately so I kinda gotta work with what I have and it's a 55 watt kit Xeon off eBay I was thinking about putting in a relay to see if that will fix the flicking I was just seeing if anyone else has came across this or is there a different way to wire them in

Can you post a link to what you are looking at? I just did the silvainia ZXE bulbs. They are 55/65 watt xenons but are designed for a regular headlight assembly with out the hid projector. They are really nice. I picked them up at advance auto parts for $55.

One of the mechanics at work said either the kit is junk or u gotta run a relay to give them more power easy way to test it is hook the lights up to the battery and see if it just lights up without any flickering if it does then try adding a relay if not then the kit is probably junk so I might try the relay first I just thought maybe someone on here might have a 55 watt setup like the link above

Seems to be kind of an questionable kit to me. Hopefully some one with more knowledge will chime in. Or you could pm the op of the thread I linked he seems to have a lot of knowledge in this.

Ebay kits are pure junk. Go to TRS and do it right. Get projectors you will be glad you did.

Sounds like a bad ballast to me. One of mine was flickering and it was just junk. Swapped it with one from TRS and worked fine. Here's a pic of the stock light pattern compared to the projector light pattern. Both pics are using HID's, 55w. Note that only one headlight was on at a time, due to different wiring harnesses.
