Ebay has little love for OBS F250/F350's when it comes to interior and exterior parts. Always just search for f150/bronco as it's all the same body. True HID's are expensive but worth it. If the bulb/wiring kit is less then $120 then it's ether a miss-matched set Bulbs and transformers aren't the same wattage or they are the dimmer 35 watt HID's. Mine are 55w and have true Hi/Low function.

as far as the bulb/ballast set up, you might check out ddmtuning.com. the price is CHEAP and they work great. ive ran 4 sets and had one ballast go out. i called, they send me a new one free, no questions asked. ive been running them for about 4 years and love them. ill be getting a kit for m f350 and probobly a set to retrofit some fogs as well

Yes you can, I got my lenses from eBay with the kit tho, kit was junk, and I get better kits from my brother for like $125 a set. Never had a problem.

That I don't know, only used 2 kits, and one was a junk kit, just know that you need to use bulbs that are 9007, the 9004 looks exactly the same fits the same too, but wires backwards. Kinda awkward lol
