    Hey Slim! I bought kits from you in the past. Wondering if you're still in the San Diego area so we can meet up and avoid the shipping charges. PM me if that's something you can do.
    I'd want one (1) kit of the H10 (Fogs).. Still debating on color temp.

    I like the blue color to the lights (I'm currently running 8K) but I want to get more visible light yet retain a slight bluish color. Torn between 4300K and 6000K. You definitely don't get 5000K or anything like that? Let me know

    I would recommend the 6000K temp! This will stay blue if you go 4300K you'll lose the blue. :) I also don't sell 5000K temps.

    I can only comment on my kits I have never compared to others. I would recommend a 3000K or 4300K for the fogs being in the snow.

    The 55w is going to be brighter and I recommend it for off-road use only or if you drive a lot of back roads where you won't blind oncoming traffic. The 35w is plenty bright and will keep you safe driving on normal roads. What color are you trying to get from your lights? The higher you go the bluer then purple they get and you also lose brightness. Let me know a little more what you like and want.

    Payment received! Thanks!

    CableTec's DIY thread in the first post shows one potential mounting setup. I've seen several different mounting methods but they all seem to be in about the same place as what's shown in that DIY thread.

    The two bumper brackets worked well for me. Anyone else have good spots besides this? I was able to mount both fog and headlight ballasts on there.

    I would recommend going 6000k or 8000k for the 55W blue color. These will be the brightest temps. The lifespan on the ballasts and bulbs are the same.

    We have reached the 10+ mark to have a raffle for ONE kit.. If we reach 20+ I will raffle of TWO kits! So for those that paid for headlights and fog lights if you win I will refund your fog light purchase. :)

    Will 4300K be the brightest option out of what's offered without any blue tint?

    I'm new to all this and have no idea about any of it. I am going from a 13 extended cab Ford FX4 to a Toyota Tacoma Doulbe Cab sport. I am wanting to get in on this but have no idea which ones I will need. The Tacoma is supposed to be here between the 10-16. One thing I am going to miss from my Ford is the HID headlamps. That is what this "Group Buy" is for correct? Which ones will I need and what is the price and how mechanical do you have to be to change them out?

    What engine did you have in that Ford? This group buy is what you want to get in on to convert from halogen bulbs to HID's. The kit is as easy as replacing bulbs and plugging in connectors. There is a very detailed write up on the first post to help walk you through install. It sounds like you're getting a brand new Tacoma so you'll want the H4 Bixenon slim 35w kit for the headlights and H11 single beam slim 35w for the fogs if you want to do them. Heads are $124.95 plus shipping and fogs are $104.95 plus shipping. Let me know if you have any other questions.
