Default Mounting HID Balast on a '99

sorry if I use the wrong words/terminology.

First of all, I know NOTHING about HIDS at all. What I think is a balast might not be a balast at all. I got my hands on some 12K HIDs for my ranger. My brother had them in his Mitsubishi Endeavor, and they're a straight fit to my ranger (how weird is that?)

It's a really easy plug and play installation, I just don't know where to put this balast thing. I thought about getting some adhesive tape stuff and sticking it somewhere, also thought about finding a bracket to drill it to the fender or something.

I'm guessing someone on here has some HIDS in they're 98-00, what did you do?

thanks for educating me.

You should be able to find a place around the grill to place the ballasts, basically something like this:
