Got my HIDs in today. It's amazing how long a simple project takes sometimes. Haha. Zip ties ended up holding me up for a 1/2 hour today. Good thing I don't have to pay myself by the hour.

I'm so good I pay myself by the quarter hour. Hahahaha jk. How good would you rate the finished/completeness of your kit? I've been looking at more expensive kits that I have seen good stuff about but figure I may be able to go cheaper. Lastly, did you do clear headlight/corner/turns and then use yellow leds, in the corners/turns?Or did you use stock?

Get the good kits.... the cheeper ones that were in my car i took out and threw away. I would go over a bump and loose all my headlights. Would have to pop the hood and tap the ballast to get the lights back. Went to ultra silver stars instead.

I got my modified factory radio back yesterday. Now I just gotta rip out this pos cd player and put it in. But I gotta go deliver some dirt to church, but I gotta wait for the Sunday service to get over and then try to get it done before I get wet.

The kit I got from DDM was ok. The quality seems to be cheap but they do work. One thing I ran into was the harness didn't span far enough to reach both sides of my truck. Short by about 3 inches, so I did have to extend the power and ground wires. Not thrilled about that, but you get what you pay for. I went with DDM because one of the guys in my chapter has had great luck with them. If they burn out or take a dump, I'm not in the hole for much and I'll upgrade to a retro kit.

As for the corners, I'm running crystal smoked 3-piece ebay headlights with clear LEDs that light up amber.
