    i just recently set up my hid lights(6000k) and absolutely love them but am now trying to find some blue(8000k) lights for my fogs. Can anyone tell me if i have to buy an entire hid kit for my fogs as well or can i just get hid bulbs? if so, where's the best place to look? Thanks for the help

    they are h10 bulbs.

    imo 3000K is way cooler

    I have a set of the H10 6000k's left over from the last GB and I think I might have a set of the 3000K's but not 100% sure. I have to check my inventory :). But if you would like to grab the set let me know I can let them go for the same prices as the GB.

    You won't see crap with 8000K HIDs, sure, it looks cool, but not useful. Get something closer to 3000K to get some use out of your fogs.

    I agree with humanoid, the 8000K is a waste, and i believe the h10 only have 3000k, i install a yellow HID fog on my Taco, it look very nice

    Well actually the h10 can come in any color temp that the headlights come in. Not just 3000k. But I 100% agree for the fogs I would only use either 3000k, 4300k, or 6000k. Just my .02

    It is easy installation, hook up the HID ballast, than install the bulbs, tie down all wire, and you done.

    I got my set on ebay, it cost about 80.00 with 3000K yellow HID, you can choose the white color, but I just like the yellow color. it is your choice.
