Cracked Headlights... from hids??

just wondering if any one has experienced their headlights cracking their hids?? both of mine have cracked like hell and the only thing i can think that would cause it is the heat from the lights with a cold morning...

when i bought my truck, a little while later i noticed my headlights were cracked from the inside. had the dealer look at it and they wrote it up as melted dtrl issue and replaced both headlights. i'm running stock bulbs from factory.

I had 8k and they were awsome but I took them out because the ballast got fucked up cuz they were loose. So it's not worth getting 12k then
