At least you will clearly be able to read my license plate as I pull buses on your stock pullied L :scared003

I thought 55w would be too hot and melt the lenses

I have 55w, 5ks and drove from ATlanta to Jackson, MS and my lens didn't melt.

To me, my 3k fogs are brighter than my 5k headlights. I knowe people that have like 7-9k and you can't see shit driving down the road.

I know Josh [JTBtheWelder] has the 35W heads/fogs setup and I couldn't believe how bright they were. I had heard that the 55W might be so bright you lose something, but with your tinted covers... tell us what it's like as far as your light pattern and range when you're next to another Lightning.

Todd, Looks great. Did you get the DDM Raptor kit? Arent they like $25 for the whole kit? I am thinking of doing the fogs and heads for a whopping $50.

looks great.

I did not go with the 55w kit due to heat. I hear they got pretty hot, so if you sitting for awhile not moving with you lights on you could have issues.

So i just went with the 35W as there HID's and too be honest, how much brighter do I need em?

I already had to angle my headlights down some to stop people from flashing me, thinking I have my highs on.

As far as the Kelvin ratings, he was correct.





I've had from 5k-12k in my truck at one time or another.... Think I went with 8k headlights and 6k fogs... Damn changed em so much cant remember now.
But hopefully those charts help.
