    i just ordered a 35w 5000k kit for my headlights and my fog lights. i ordered the hi/low kit.

    do i need a relay harness to actually use the high beam and low beam lights?

    where would i even get a relay harness. ive never heard of such a thing.

    if i do have to get a relay harness how do i hook it up?

    d i need one for the fogs?

    if i need one for the fogs do i need a seperate one from the headlights?

    factory headlights are rated for 55w on my tacoma, it says so on the back of the lens, these hids shouldnt be too hot should they?

    to hot for the fogs?

    sorry bout all the questions, im confused and ive been searching but i havent had any luck finding anything...

    What brand? If it is DDM then the power is drawn from the battery on hi/low kits.

    Then you are fine. The kit takes power from the battery so no need for the accessory wiring harness. Most vehicles can handle a 35 watt kit without one anyway.
