Offroad bumper light help. Headlight HID and foglights

Alright guys. I have been doing some searching for my question and am coming up empty handed. I am purchasing a DDM tuning 6K 55w HID ballast kit for my truck. However I am currently in the process of building front/rear offroad bumpers and am wanting to install the 4" lights in the holes of my bumper. I would like them to match the 6K HID I will have in my headlights

Now the 2 outside lights im going wire to run as my normal OEM fogs would have and the 2 inners i will wire upto run of one of my upfitter switches.

Can anyone give me any suggestions for lights? I looked at PIAA and they are $200 plus a piece.

I have found lights like these but the dont give dimensions as to the outer housing width so im trying to see what you guys run in your bumper and if you guys even bother to match them to your HID's

OK so I came across these westin lights. They have pretty good reviews and the price is right. What I would then do is take the back plastic housing apart on the westin lights and and replace them with the DDM tuning H3 55w 6000 hid kit and wire the 2 outside lights to turn on with my factory fogs and the 2 inner i will run off an upfitter switch.


anyone see any problems with this solution?

OK gonna post in here as a follow up. I went ahead and ordered the westin 4" lights even though i wasnt quite sure of the outer diameter of the lights and if theyd fit in the light pod of my bumper. They should fit perfectly and am currently working on installing my h3 HID in place of the stock westin light bulbs.

My suggestion would be to run 8k lights on your 55w ballasts and 6k on the 35w ballasts. Reason being that the 55w ballasts wash out the the color and the lights. I went through this same issue on my truck. But the nice thing is the bulbs are only $15 so you can play around to make them match.

this is the route I actually went. I have my DDM 8000k 55 and 6000k 35 sitting at home waiting for my bumper and painted headlamp install. I appreciate that response though. I did a lot of research to find what color numbs would match between the 35k and 55k

I went with a weld it yourself road rhino. I'll be doing a write up on it here soon. Awesome bumpers and the fitment of the pieces together was spot on. I just finished coating mine with raptor liner and will be installing them here this weekend.

I am planning a light bar install however it'll be going in behind my mesh grill. What brand light bar is it might I ask? 30in for that price is a steal. How long have you had it?
