I actually use a $40 kit from ebay for my headlights. I only use one retailer (tried others with bad results) and one of my kits (previously on my S10, now on my buddy's Silverado) is still going after three years...only one bulb went out that whole time. I'll never pay the outrageous prices some do for HIDs.

i would have but a friend of mine used the $40.00 kit and has bad luck on his head lights so he used them for his fogs..not sure exactly what the problem was so i thought HID's are one of those things you get what you pay for

see the ballast itself where decent with light output... 3 out of my 4 still are working.... my only problems where they are not exactly plug and play and the power cables are to short ( not much options where to mount ) and by saying that it's hard to keep them from being expoused from the elements and especially here in Wisconsin with winter ( salt ) Where you mount your ballast? see mine are corroding badly... so where ever you can mount them staying out of the elements would be best!!! lets see some more pics... from inside your cab looking out... you have stock headlight assembly using a 9007 bi-xenon?

So wait, you guys are buying expensive kits with no luck? I wouldn't lie about it, but I have literally installed about 12 of the $40 kits I have on friends' and family's rides and no one has had problems.
