    I have wanted to get H.I.D.'s since the day I bought my truck. Everyone I have talked to about getting them done has been around 600 or 700 dollars, but i found this kit
    http://www.carid.com/2001-toyota-tacoma-xenon-hid/ today. Can anyone tell me if this is a rip off, or what?

    I would suggest just purchasing your HID kit from Slimcubby. He has group buys on this forum all the time. i know there was one going on a few days ago. It might have just ended. Check out the "group buys" section. They're at a good price and very reliable.

    Slim offers a great product with outstanding service. I don't think anyone has a complaint about Slim, his product, or the way he handles his group buys.

    I've had my kit installed about a year and not once have they failed me. Slim is easy and great to work with as well. I mean the guy will even give you his number so you can call and ask him any questions with the installation. Plus there is also a write up on this forum with pitcures and everything for the HID kit you'll get from Slim. You'll be happy you listened to us.

    I bought a kit from slim, one of my Ballasts failed after a week. He replaced it for me with little hassle, but still a heads up. I'm going to order a set of HIDs to convert my off road lights with a kit from DDM. Their kits have a lifetime warranty and are even cheaper than Slim's GB prices...
    look here:D :

    The ddm kits also have three mounting holes on the ballast. Makes us much easier to mount them than the Slim kits that have only 1 hole. Ive installed several DDM kits and a couple of Slims kits.

    Well i have never really done a group buy, and dont know how to do it. After Christmas I will have some good money saved up, and I am most likely going to purchase a kit.
    RentlessTaco and Dorifuto - can you tell me anything more about these DDM kits? Do you know people who own them and are satisfied?
