    Personally, I'm just doing HID's but alot of people on here will suggest the retrofit's. I picked up some 6000k's for my headlights and foglights from DDM for $100 shipped, and will spend the rest of my money doing something else I want to the truck.

    retro or dont do HID, i have a DDM plug and play HID kit and it sucks, it works fine but the light output is crappy, its very very bright, but its scattered, tons of glare... just get some really good halogen bulbs
