5K HID's in fogs.

Best mod for night driving! some states have very strict laws on these lights but if you have them in your fogs and use them for bad weather or pitch dark roads, cops seem to be less [removed] about them.

You will need a HID relay harness to make them work properly since they only drain 35w, i got mine from Vleds.com for cheap.

Here is the only picture i have, they are bright in the daytime and very bright white at night! i love them!

Those look nice, are they a straight bulb replacement?

I don't have part numbers but they are Xentec brand, bulb size is 9005 and require a HID harness relay that can be purchased threw V-leds, install is very simple and straight forward. here is the best by far trouble shooting guide i have run across to help out those who have never installed HID's.

These lights are ideal for offroading since the light is so intense, the picture does not do the lights justice,

Thanks for looking.

So Acid, it looks like you would need the following for the fogs:
V-HID 9005 9006 RELAY WIRING HARNESS FOR HID KIT $9.95
V-HID 35W SLIM BALLAST XENON HEADLIGHT KIT 9005 5000K PURE WHITE $149.00

Are you going to do your low and high beams?

You should never install HID's for the high beams. Most of the time when you use the high beams, you will have to turn them off and on a lot for on coming traffic. This will shorten the life span of the ballast.
