Hey Crash. It was $100 for both the high and low beam kits with error code eliminators. $35 for each HID kit and $15 for each pair of error code eliminators. I also got an HID kit for my fogs. Shipping was about $20. So a total of less than $160.

I went with the 35w 5000K bulbs all around. I wanted really bright white light. And that IS exactly what I got.

I got Spyder CCFL Halo Projector headlights. The CCFL halos are pretty bright as well. I am happy with them. On my 2003 Dodge, I had normal halos and they weren't really bright. These CCFL halos are a lot brighter.

Thanks for the rep points. I really want to build up my total.

Thanks Scottd53. That was my intention when I decided to do it. If you would like, give me some rep points. Up in the right hand corner of the post, click on the scale symbol to give me reps. Thanks.

cbrambo497 - I responded to your second PM. I could probably have them in the mail Tuesday (UPS with tracking number) if we can come to terms. Let me know.

Great write up. Thanks for taking the time. Definitely rep for that!!

Do you use the halos as driving lights or are the LEDs for that or how exactly do you have them set up?

Thanks.

I have the halos and LEDs both spliced into the driving lights. I like them that way. The way I did it is - I spliced the halo wires into one set of the LED wires (there are 2 sets of LED wires per side). Then I combined the 2 LED wire sets together and spliced them into the parking light wires.

You dont need to remove the grill and 35$ for and hid kit wow ive never saw them for under 90 and you got low and high for 100 nice. Any way just get a long extension to get the bottom bolt on the headlight. And when you buy hid's well at least when i did i got the extra wiring harness for free i dont have the error code eliminators and i dont have any problems the extra kit you get comes with a flicker box.The only prob you might have is your tps coming on for like 1-2 secs.And as far as the headlights look for a post i did about the difference between recon and spyder same light big difference and with recon you have to drill out the housing to get the hid to fit. Gave you some sexy rep

I ordered my spyder headlights and hid kits from carid. Is that where you got yours dodgert? Should I not bother getting the error code eliminators? I will have everything on tuesday, did it take you a long time to install them?
