conversion kits that include bulbs, ballasts, everything. they plug into your stock headlight socket, then go through the HID wiring, and then the bulbs fit right into your stock housings. they're either 35 or 55 watts, and way brighter (blinding to other drivers if not aimed right) than a halogen. typically a low beam only kit, but you can get high beam options as well.

www.ddmtuning.com is a great company to get them from if you go that route, many people on here and myself have gotten kits for various lights for great prices and a great warranty.

OR, you can get sylvania silverstar ultras or any type of halogen bulb at your local auto parts store, amazon, or ebay.

Or, if you want to spend pretty much the same amount of money as ordering from DDM, you can order HIDs thru me and have them in 2-3 days instead of waiting 2-3 weeks to get them from DDM. And mine come with mounting brackets

Shoot me a PM again. Ask any questions you may have, and let me know the year of your truck and I will give you some options for HIDs

My kits are EXTREMELY easy to install. It is as simple as taking out the stock bulb, putting the HID bulb in, plugging that into the ballast, plugging the ballast into your stock plug and you're done. No cutting or anything
