    you might wanna try wholesalehid.com
    i got my lights from them and it also came with a relay which is good for when you do this type of converstion and they got lifetime warranty
    at first when i received the package from the outside i was like wow i got something cheap but then when i opened them up i was actually impressed at the quality of the lights, ballast, and especially the relay.
    now though im thinking about getting 100w 6k bulbs i want to them brighter hah =P

    What i can say is it's all same **** but a different pile! 55w are bright, but not worth the extra money. Go with 35 watt with a relay harness. I have 6000k temperature and i like my colour, i wouldn't recommend anything over 8000k, as it starts to really diminish the light output for colour.

    Good luck!

    ok just to get 55w you just pay anywhere from 10-20 dollars. you tell me how is that a waste of money? when you can clearly see a difference.now if you said something like."i personally think its a waste of money when people pay for the slim ballast because they do the exact same thing just in a slimer design that costs more."

    The main reason why people buy HID's is for the colour of the light. I have 35 watt HID's and a buddy of mine has 55 watt. There is not THAT much of a difference between the two. There is a lot of conditions that will make the light appear different, dirty lenses, angle, brand of HID, but i personally don't think it is worth the extra money. And slim ballasts, are worthless.

    If you can keep those lenses looking new, i would recommend those. They add a serious new look to your truck.
