    Looks good, I remember a friend of mine having HIDs in his fogs and they were extremely bright. What kit did you get?

    I ended up getting a xenon kit from indy auto parts in saugus, I can't remember the make but they are extremely bright and come with a 1 year warranty. I had them for the headlights but went back and traded the bulbs for fogs because they were too bright haha

    Did you end up having to adjust the fog light assembly? I just installed a pair of 5K HID lights in my 2010 silverado and they are EXTREMELY bright. They shine light everywhere, I could essentially use them as my high beams.

    I'm going to have to adjust them downward.

    I'm positive the fog lights can be adjusted. At least on the 07 and above models. I'll try and snap a pic of the adjustment screw.
