Need help on HID Conversion!

Im trying to get HID for my 2008 truck but when i talked to my dealership, he said that you had to bypass some sort of mechanism. Does anyone know what he is talking about? I asked him but he wasnt sure what it was but he just know that you have to bypass something. What size are the headlight and foglight?

i think it depends on the hid kit you buy i bought two set of plug and play one beam hid kits and they work fine nothing to bypass. I juat had to get use to turing the lights on and off instead of it automatically turning off when the driver door opens

and the bulb size is 9003 for the head lights and 9145 for the fog lights. Many of the plug and play kits also come high and low beam for our bulb size if thats something you would want i went with just one beam did not see the need for high beams any more

i just installed a pnp kit hb2 6000k h/l beams install was fairly simple since i had experience installing hid pnp kits before, the light output is amazing and will prob get some 6000k for the fogs as well, most of the ebay kit are the same some warranty's are better then others, mine have a 3year warranty on the bulb and ballast.

find your mounting place for you ballast is prob the hardest part in all install took me about 30mins.

Is he talking about the daytime running lamps? Aftermarket HID kits are a relatively easy install, it's not brain surgery.
