There is a reason why everyone does 5 or 6k in their heads. Actually multiple reasons

Good usable white light
Any other color is illegal
5 or 6k looms best. Anything else would be stupid in headlights

I wouldnt say stupid. They worked well in the civic housing headlights and were bright enough. Also cops didnt say anything to me since I dont live in a shitty state. Anything passed 8k might be a little too much. But 8k isnt too bad. But im sure with the rangers housing itll be tough to go 8k or higher...lame.

Notice you say "worked well in a civic"
A ford ranger is not a rice rocket

Yes I said "worked well" because I knew HIDs in a stock housing would be risky to see how itll look.

oh and Rice rocket+ mpg FTW.

I've seen 3000k in headlights and looks ridiculous. They belongs in foglights, nothing else. 4500-6000k are the only colors appropriate for headlights.
