Cool HID KC daylighters

Has anyone on here done the conversion? Im looking to get some 6000K bulbs and ballasts to throw in mine so they match my fogs lows and highs. didnt know if some one has done this and can comment on beam pattern and brightness over stock?

I started off with a set of the 130W daylighters and was pretty disappointed. Ended up tossing in a set of 100W (bigass ballasts) 4300k HIDs in them and WOW! They throw out a wall of light! You definetly lose the instant-on of halogens but they are amazing!

I haven't done that exact conversion. But HID's are a day and night difference. You won't be disappointed.

I have to agree, honestly its more for the color match of the 6000k in the head lights and fogs but the added brightness is still a bonus

I'll try to hit a car wash today and grab some pictures on a dark road tonight. In the meantime here's one from when I did the install. The outer ones are the KCs w/100W 4300k, the inners are just a set of the 4" 6000K fleabay fogs. I know the picture doesn't do 'em justice!

No justice, but they still look nice!
