Lights up the ground like a halogen...yellowish on asphalt....but bright ass white with slight yellow hue. GREAT on snow or in rain or on backroads. Anything higher, HID's are blinding m-effers especially on snow.

I got pics somewhere but they're on the external so I gotta find 'em.

Hey beef....


This pic is actually 5000k fogs and 6000k headlights. I wanted to see the difference between the two when a friend ordered 5000k's for her truck. In person and in pics, there's virtually no difference.

Fog ballasts are behind the grille on those vertical "walls" on each side...they're slims. Headlight ballasts are the big mo-fo's and they're mounted on brackets through existing hardware on each side of the radiator in the engine bay. Check my R-F how-to for pics.


You're stupid to waste money on the Piaa's. Everyone will tell you that once they go HID, they're never goin' back to halogen. I went through 4 or 5 sets of different high power halogens and was never happy. Then I drove Trevor's truck with hid's top and bottom and I ordered my kit a half hour later. $175 (4 years ago). Now I have a dead 4 yr old ballast which I would think is a nice lifespan.... Gonna go slims this time around though.

You should go with HIDs IMHO. And there's a lot of places to put the ballast at. If it is a slim ballast, you can put virtually anywhere you want, just so it's away from heat and moving parts . The big normal ballast, I put one beside the battery, not next to the battery but on the frame and the other is beside my coolant and wiper fluid containers.

Dude your going to have a seeing orgasm once you see them at night . I work at night too and I have to say I love working at night. NEVER going back to halogens. The places to put the ballasts are endless. Just so there not around heat or moving parts you should be fine.
