Anyone have any suggestions on a good HID kit that wont break the bank because im going to be getting two kits on for my hi/lo and one for my fogs. Alot of my friends here are getting DDM kits but im unsure if i want to go with them for my truck. They are good on my bike but idk about for my truck. Any input would be great. Thanks in advance

No, the relay keeps the ballasts/bulbs from burning out due to the crappy wiring in the truck. HID ballasts draw less amperage then Halogen bulbs, however when they first start that have what's called "Flash" current. For about half a second they pull around 12-15 amps, which is far more then the trucks factory wiring can handle.

No clue if you need a "code eliminator". All they are are some .20 cent resistors.
