Default Which is the best HID kit?

I'm looking into getting HIDs and i was wondering what would be a good kit to go with that has 8000k? I have a 2011 quad cab 4.7l but i'm not sure if i have a single light or two separate? Could anyone help me out on this? Also ones that are reasonably priced to haha. Also can i just swap out the bulbs or will that not work? Thanks.

I just put hids in my 12. I got a kit on ebay for around 130. Simple plug n play swap. Just look at your headlights and see if theres two bulbs per side or 1

You should have two bulbs, 1 harness. That being said, from wherever you get/order your HIDs from, they should know what you need. And you'll also want to take Jhouse's advise and take a peak for yourself.

What is reasonably priced? I've seen them as low as $30 bucks for a set (you'll wanna stay away from those) and as high as $250 a set. It's just a matter of preference, how much do you want to spend, how much of a warranty do you want (if any). IMHO, The Retrofit Source would be your best bet. They are by far not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either and they will take care of you. Whatever you get, they will make a huge difference in the look of your truck and how you light up the night. Good luck!

Like in anything you pay for what you get, if you want a set that will last buy a good kit, yes the retrofitsource has some very good kits, **************** also. Don't be sorry by buying a crappy kit, get something that will last.
