Can you put HID's in a PIAA or Hella Driving light

I've got some PIAA's and some Hella ralley's on a light bar on the front of my truck. The PIAA's run 85 watt super whites, I think, and the Pella's run 135 watt Halogens. Can these aftermarket lamps be converted to HID's with a brighter bulb?

yes and no... pul out the bulb and let me know what bulb type they are.. when i did a HID conversion on my baja design lights i had to modify the bracket that holds in the light so that the HID bulb would fit... so can you do it.. possibly.. but it might not be a bolt on situation

yup i know... but... i already had my lights and i had a HID kit just laying around that i had bought for a customer and they backed out so i said what the heck... i know the BD ones have an internal ballast and are better but they wanted a crap load of money to convert them into HID's... i did mine on the cheap
