hi , this hid lighting is new to me but i love how bright they are when on . i have a few simple questions about these hid conversion kits . i have a 2006 dodge ram slt and i am looking for the brightest clear hid kit .where is the best place to order the hid kits from online with the best price ,what is a reasonable price for the hid kit ? with these kits would you need to buy anything extra for them to work properly or do you get everything you need in the hid kit ? also is hid and xeon the same type bulb? if not which is brighter? which hid manufactuers make the best hid kits ?

ddmtuning.com is where I get all my kits for family members cars, friends trucks, etc.. very affordable, easy to install, and lifetime warranty on everything. A hi/lo kit (one bulb for both high/ low) since it requires the extra harness will run you probably around 60 shipped. Vehicles that have separate bulbs are a direct plug and play. I installed a set on my titan in about 12mins. 5000k is white for a hint of blue I go with 6000K 35W slim ballasts

I picked up my fog lights from -> http://www.xtremehids.com/ They did not communicate well. 10000K

I just ordered my headlight stuff from.....

New single bulb housings - ebay
Projectors - Bi-xenon: Morimoto Mini H1 4.1 ->
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=3181
HID's - I picked up the Digital 55watt 6000K from http://www.retro-solutions.com/

And Jeremy at http://retroshop.us/index.html can set you up with the parts to do the conversion yourself or for a fee he can do the conversion for you.

The above is a proper upgrade to HID. Just installing a HID set in your regular headlights just makes life miserable for those you are behind or approaching.

My suggestion is to hook up with Jeremy. He can tell you exactly what you need for your year truck.

will call jeramy.its getting even more confusing for me. i just spoke with a local hid installer and he said be carefull with those 89.00 dollar kits . he said you need to make sure you also have a cambust with kit . he said a cambust tricks your trucks computer without the cambust your truck would show a bulb out. he said to me that he could put a hid kit in my truck for 450.00 and it will be a very good one ?

Do a search on here for ddm tuning they are CHEAP for a reason dont buy from them
Ive literally done a dozen DDM installs on everything from an STI subaru to a 2012 f350. Some were done as long as 4 years ago and no problems to this day. One ballast went bad, they sent me a new one right away. I guess its like anything, sometimes life hands you lemons...

Of course he did. He wants to make money off you. Just trying to help you save some money because 450 is an outrageous amount of money for HID's.. But it's your money, just offering alternate solutions.. I was also told about the bulb out warning, especially with my sisters 07 Volvo S60, but the plug and play ddm didn't throw any codes and she loves them..

when you buy these hid conversion kits do they always have the lo beam being hid, and the hi beam being the normal hologen beam . can you get both hi/lo beams in hid or you can only get the low beam in hid? can you please fill me in on this . thank you

Sorry but there product is crap and there return policy is even worse or it went bad send it back you pay shipping we will take 4 months to test it if we even answer your emails.

Had them in my stang they lasted 2 months had in stratus got 4 months and i said never again you might like them but census on here agrees bad stuff but hey glad you had good luck with them.
