custom HID conversions, HID kits, LED, CCFL specialists - retrosolutions

They're by far the best company to deal with HID wise that I've come across. Todd can hook you up with everything you need at a good price.

The ones on that site are not bi-xenon, thus you only have HID's when your low beams are on and your high beams are a regular type. Not the best you can get.....On edit, those are some crappy packages, if they cannot provide the wiring that other systems do standard, I'd stay away from those guys.

The ones in the link you posted, from the pictures and reading the descriptions, they're lacking in quality. From what's listed, I'm assuming they don't provide a relay with their kit, thus it being listed separately. Also, they ones you linked are either low beam or high beam, not both.

Retro-solutions offers Bi-xenon kits that are both high and low beam. (Basically a moving bulb.) Either way, they're a superior choice.

I'd look into a 55w kit. They 35w kits from what I've delt with seem quite a bit dimmer.

I'm not sure on the PSN discount, it's posted in the Retro Solutions forum in the Vendors section....I think the code online is just PSN, or you can call them and say you're a member here.

Well if you're talking about buying from Retro Solutions, yes, if that is the correct bulb type for your truck.

On a side note, 4300k is closer to the sun, thus technically brighter. I have 5000k or 6000k and they're white and really bright. 8000k would be more blue and dimmer than the one's closer to 4300k.

More than likely a ground issue. That's the only problems I've run into with mine. The "auto" on feature for the headlights can sometimes make one of them not come on but that has happened to me once in the few months I've had mine.
