HID install

I just installed the Retro-Solutions HID kit and WHAT a difference. I used the 35w Bi-xenon 6000k and fog lights. I capped the fog lights thinking it wouldn't be so bright so I can run them without getting flashed...... Fail! lol the fog lights are BRIGHTER than the headlights. The only other complaint is the relay harness was too short and I had to cut and extend to get to the passenger side. No big deal. Anyway, I did half at a time and took a picture. I also lit up the back part of my shop. WOW You have to understand, the area where the picture was taken is PITCH BLACK. Impressive.

94% of all Dodge Cummins trucks from1992 through 2012 are still on the road today..... The other 6% made it home.....

If it still runs when you delete it, you don't need it!

Great pic. I am strongly considering the 55w fog and headlights from them. Only concern is daytime running lights. What did you do for that?

Thanks
Josh

I would not recommend the 55 watt lights. Too bright in my opinion. The 35's are too bright! I just don't see the need for that much. As it is, police have targeted aftermarket lights for probably cause to pull them over. I don't need the extra attention! Fords don't have Daytime lights, so I didn't worry about it.

do not put 55w hids in fogs, ur asking for trouble, they get way way too hot. 35W HIDS are more than good enough, Superduty 4x4's are high from factory so your gunna blind everyone, I have bi xenon 6K Headlights and 6K Fogs @35W. My Foglights also seem to out out the headlights, but thats typical bc the fogs are lower and have a diff spread pattern. But the Headlights put out a ton of light. Get Relays and stick to 35W you'll be happy.
