They listed their Raptors as this price around Christmas. Seems like that price is here to stay.

Anyone know more about real differences between the Raptor line and the slim kit besides just the size?

Raptor says:
Quote:
Introducing the Apexcone Raptor V2 Mid Sized HID kit. Apexcone Raptor V2 Hid Kits have the same width and length as its' predecessor, but are 3/8" thicker. These full size ballasts are nearly bulletproof; bringing reliability and value in one.
Slim kit says:
Quote:
HID Kits for any car, truck, or SUV. Finally, a great priced, slim ballast, fully digital, HID kit available in 55w and 35w. Starting at 49.95 including Lifetime Warranty.

Fully digital, draws less than 6 amps at start up and 3.4 amps at normal operating temperature. This system provides 3200-3400 Lumens at 35 watts and an amazing 5000 Lumens at 55 watts per bulb. In comparison, a typical halogen bulb produces 900-1200 lumens.

I want their 55w hi/lo system and I'm debating on getting the heavy duty harness to go with it as a little more insurance against burning anything up. Good idea? No?

You don't need the 55w Kit the 35W kit is bright enough, but if you buy the 55W kit it should come with an upgraded harness.

I have 8000K I'm puttin on my 94' . I got them from www.TopHIDKits.com ... I paid 102.73 for mine and it included the bulbs,ballest,and wiring. The price also included the lifetime warranty and relays. This is a plug n play kit. It doesnt matter what kit you want all the kits are the same price.

You don't need an HD wiring harness. These things use less power than your stock lights.

I just bought the H3 kit to convert my off-road lights to HID. Can't wait to get this in. Be like having my own personal sun on the front of the truck!

I ordered 35w 6000k's for my headlamps and fogs from DDM last week, with the hi/low for my headlamps to keep it functional. I cant wait to see the difference, my sylvania ultra whites are getting pretty weak, and one died already so I'm a spadoodle for a week or so until they show up.

Yes you have to upgrade your wiring or you wont have a Ranger anymore. The factory connections are only rated for low voltage use. If you dont replace them they will over heat and torch the wiring .......

Incorrect. Your factory wiring is more than sufficient for any HID kit on the market. The HID kids draw less current than the stock halogen bulbs to begin with.
