Quick HID ?

Ive been trying to search for a definitive answer, but nothing so far. Just mixed reviews. I have an 01 F350 with fogs, and i just ordered 55w 6k heads and fogs (upgraded to the 05-07 headlights). My question is, I read that some people have problems with their fogs and others dont. Do i need to order a relay for the fogs or will they be ok with no relay? Id like to order it as soon as possible if i do need it. Anyone got a for sure answer for me?

It is all in what hid you order. If you get a bixenon you need a relay to make hi/lo beams work. If you just get xenon hids you don't need a relay. For the fog lights xenon hid kit. As for flickering people get DC hid kits which may flicker. I love AC hid kits bc AC hids means no flickering
