The ones that Raul sells are very bright. I would go with 6K though, just the right amount of blue light plus it is great for seeing on those rainy roads here in Oregon...

your saying with 8k it would make it tougher to see in the rain? Im new to this! I have been searching Ebay and found kits from 40-200.... Thinking i want to spend around $100? Could i get a good kit for that?

well... i would recommend upgrading your actual housing to the clear setup... you can get some cheaply priced ones on ebay... if your still looking for more light we can then set you up with HID's for your truck but i do not recommend them for the stock headlights since they are very hazy

How does it all work Raul? I just ordered new clear headlights off of ebay yesterday. I am wanting to do the bulbs at the same time I install the lights. Are the lights a direct fit in the stock socket/plug? Whats the price on a set of those bulbs? PM open if needed. Thanks.

well they are not just bulbs... its a whole kit with ballasts and a relay harness...

you have to make sure that your new headlights still use a 9007 bulbs.. if they do you your just going to need a 9007 bulb HID kit...

Ok great, I had no clue they came with a ballast and relay. I will get ahold of you when the headlights come in. Thanks.

Raul- Is this a good headlight to use with a HID kit? I want to keep my yellow turns and marker lights for now because they match my visor lights...
