Stock Fog HID Conversion ?

i know there are write ups on this but no1 is responding and im trying to order from ddm right now. i did the headlight swap the other day. took me 20 min. have a question about the fog lights. so you go from factory connector of the fog light to the ballast to the bulb. no ground or power source from battery? im assuming this process is just for the controller (high/low bulb) on the headlights? im trying to get the slim kit from DDM. what bulb type H10? if anyone wants to just tell exactly i need it would be much appreciated.

As everyone else has stated, just get the H10 Kit. The wire is usually long enough to have your ballast up around by your headlights/grill

Yup. If you plan on running a dumb 55 watt kit then you need the harness.

i still say its safer to do the relay and stuff. dont wanna blow fuses or burn up your wiring/truck. dont kick yourself in the ass later. get the wiring harness. Just some advice.

I'm not sure about that. I have seen 55 watt damage a stock headlight housing.

Have any of you seen this? This sucks because the headlights are almost new and my truck is out of warranty.

HID stats:
- 55w
- 6000k
- Bi Xenon

As you can see in the pics the "burn in" shadow is the same as the light pattern.

Yes I know what it means thanks. If you see above the 55 watt HID kit damaged the housing.

I don't know what the outcome was. I still think 55 watts for the street is just retarded. Oh but you live in a part of town that has no lights? Still don't need them.
