    OP...you need to use periods. :thumbsup:


    You get what you pay for. Slims aren't the cheap flimsy stuff, havent heard of anyone having too many problems with them.

    Ha I like to think of myself as a sentence typer just easier. I think I may go with slims just not sure yet. My dad always says why fix something that isn't broke so I'm stand on the fence for awhile

    I'm thinking ill go with the ones from slim this time the only reason I'm looking at getting this is I want some HID off road lights and think they'd look werid with regular headlights.

    Doesnt look to bad with HID offroad lights and halogen headlights, Ive converted my 7" lights to HID though to match my headlights but will soon be doing a retrofit...Id recommend that than just getting a drop in kit and if i do the retros soon enough ill sell you my DDM slim kit if you want, its 35w 5k. Never had any issues with them

    Heres all 4 of mine on
