Personally I would skip the HIDs and go for aux lights. Those actually help since the housing and lens are designed for the bulb inside. You won't blind people with those because you can turn them off when there is an oncoming vehicle.

Tell me more about the aux lights? I'm not an offroader just want to customize my truck to look mean so white color bulbs are my choice and anyone know of white fog lights? I found these and am considering it

You can get aftermarket driving lights. You don't have to be a offroader to have a set. Look at Mini Coopers.

Halos aren't my cup of tea unless they came from the factory.

I ran mine once. Like I said the light dispersion was good just that the light was super dim. I guess if I ran a 55w it would be diffrent but I dont really want to melt my housings. JDC 07 if your perogative is purely looks go for it, But like Whipper said go with some proper Aux lights.

retrofits are a hell of a lot better qualitywise when it comes to projectors

the projectors used in those "all-in-one" kits generally suck


theyre not too hard to do either
