    Finally bit the bullett and got a set of HIDs for my fogs and my low beams... Dame they are nice... I haven't gotten to drive with them at night yet, but I will be tonight... lol

    Both sets are 35 Watt, 8000K... (http://www.ebay.com/itm/251035309904?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649)
    The fogs are hooked up direct to the factory fog light wires... I have the relay kit, but didn't use it... If They start to act up, i'll put it on...

    The lows are set-up with a delay circuit and the relay kit... I looked for a couple delay circuits and most I found were only a 1-2.5 second delay and that wasn't going to be long enough for my needs. Since my remote start has "Headlight Confirmation" it flashed the low beams once activated, then keeps them on for about 3-4 seconds after it starts the truck, then flashes them and shuts them off... And I didn't feel like replacing bulbs/ballast all the time... lol
    So I found the perfect unit. The PAC TR7 User programable wth custom delay times...

    Lows & Highs (my higs are actually the Blue Xenon Halogen bulbs... LoL)

    I also bought new marker light housings, headlight housings, and fog/DRL housings... I changed the markers and headlights, but the fogs are a bigger pain then I had anticipated... So that will have to wait for aother day... lol

    Love the set up. How do you get away with the blue lights on the roof? Here in MI, I don't think red or blue lights are allowed on a car unless its a police cruiser or first responder/firefighter.

    Here in PA, volunteer fire fighters & ambulance personnel run blue lights to respond to emergency scene or the station... Line officers and apparatus run red/white. PD run red/white/blue...

    Looks good! I plan on putting some HID's in my truck. I just installed LED dome lights (check out the lighting forums).

    Also, glad to see another volley on the site. I'm a volunteer up here in NY. You a member of elightbars?

    Very nice, I should be getting mine in within the next two weeks. I went with 55W 5000k lows, and 35W 5000k fogs, I wanted the whitest light ever without having any blue or yellow involved :)

    I love the HID upgrade, I did my low beams about 2 months ago, but went with 35w 6000k and they work great. I do have a question though, where do you get the lights for the side mirrors? I am not necessarily looking for strobes, but I want white (6000k) that I can turn on when out in the country?

    And I was thinking about upgrading to 55w balists.

    But since you went with 2 different wattages, the colors most likely won't match...


    They are called MirrorBeams and they are made by Whelen...

    Holy camel dude. I don't think I have even seen an actual fire apparatus with all of that.
