    So $47 and ten minutes later here ya go you can have sweet a$$ HID's in your plow lights? Did them last night and snapped some pics for you guys.

    1. Take off back part to light. 3 screws.

    3. Cut the low beam wire and the ground wire from old headlight bulb connector. Splice the blue wire to the low beam wire. And the black to the ground. Tuck the old connector away incase you want to switch back to halogen anyday.

    4. Put the ballast as shown in last pic and ziptie the wires up good . I wrapped my ballast in bubble wrap and stuck it in there to save from vibration. Then put the cover back on, hook up the plow to your truck and waa laa you are done.

    nice job, what set did u get, where did u get them from and what is the light output for that exact set? I know some guys dont like them to bright as it is tough to see while it is snowing. Thanks for the help.

    Those look like 8Ks. Looks really good, looks like such a better difference in that picture at night with them in. I have HIDs in my truck, want to put them in my plow so bad. when i get intensifires i will. Nice job yours look real good. Have you noticed/checked for any excessive heat from the HIDs in the intensifires yet?

    Thank you I got the 6000k set from DDM tuning , No need for the high/low kit since the lows are brighter than the regular halogen highs. Hopefullly if we get this storm midweek I will tell you how they are.

    I believe the plug and play kit is for the high low beam kit which is alot more wires and would take alot longer than just cutting the wires.

    I dont think excessive heat will be a problem since they are expossed to the elemnts and not tucked in the trucks body like regular headlights . And also how much area the intensifires have they should never get too hot.
