    Plenty of threads on this same subject already. Search, look in the Lighting sub-section.

    Most people go with Slimcubby's group-buys. Personally, I have something very similar to what Slimcubby is selling. I went with 35 Watt, 5000k HIDs for my Fogs and Headlights. Here's the result;

    Here's complete darkness, you cant even make out the truck!

    the best PNP kit is here. only thing that will beat this kit is a true projector retrofit, but that will cost you ~$400 just in parts alone...

    I just got my sets off of ebay from the same seller for both my headlights and fog lights. I have had them for a while and they work great. Very easy to install. Pretty much plug-n-play applications. I got 55W 6K's for the heads and 35W 3K for the fogs. 5K is said to be the whitest light out there until you go to a 6K where it gives off a slight blue tint.:cool:
