2012 f-350 hid

Hi,

New to the powerstroke scene. I just bought myself a 2012 f-350, moved from a 2008 duramax. Had the opportunity to get a newer truck and lower my payments figured I'd try a Ford out, I'll drive anything. I want to pick up a few add ons before I pick up the truck, but need some help. I want to have some DDM HID tuning lights bought. Can someone tell me what bulb numbers are in the headlights and fog lights? Ford has a separate high beam bulb from low beam...correct? Any other add ons, short of deletes a guy should look at? Intake?

Thanks

I am pretty disappointed in my HID's. I like the look of the 6k lights, but i feel my sliverstar bulbs gave me better light. If I were to buy HID's again, I'd get the 4300k. Closer to true daylight. The headlight bulbs are a combo high/low. Bulb number is H13. I don't remember what the fog lights are. A lot of guys, including me, bought our HID's from retrosolutions.com. He's a member and gets it done. Also, I can't run my fog lights when crossing someone at night. They blind oncoming traffic.

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!

I had DDM turnings 6000k x 2 in my duramax and liked the light better than any bulb I could find. Thanks for help.

H 13 hi/low beam for headlights
H 10 for the fogs, i believe they also cross reference to a 9145.

Correct. I got the retro solutions kit for my 06 and love them. Make sure you get a 55w kit not a 35w kit, makes a hell of a difference in light output. I went with 8k and love the color and light output on the street. As for off road go with something around 5k or lower, the bluer light doesn't do very week off the pavement.

I put 5k 55 wat hi/low and fogs they are bright as all get out. I really like them like driving in the day, but I do need to adjust them down some. They are from retro solution great product easy install. If you need any help on the install look on YouTube some good videos on there.

Be careful with those 55w lights in the fog housing as you will burn the housing up or so I have heard. Safer to run the 35w for those.

Did anyone who put HID's in their fog lights get the bulbs capped from retro solutions?

Yes I did, my fogs are capped. But I haven't had to use them yet, as most of my driving has been on the interstate.
