    Anyone installed true HID lighting in plow lights.

    Yes, we installed the Sylvania setup in the plow. Absolutely fantastic. Much less power draw, much more light. Worth every penny we paid. Installed the power supplies in the light housings and the ran power from the plow harness. No additional connections when hanging the plow. Never missed the high beams.

    We also installed the Phillips HID setup into the truck itself.

    boss offers HID's but they are about a 1200 $ option. do those HID aftermarket kits work in bosses lights?

    They work in anything that has a 4656 sealed beam (the rectangular ones that GM used to use) Which is many of the plow light set-ups.

    The Phillips kits are essentially just the bulb (also powered by ballasts)

    the HID's wont work in the newer boss lights then. they are a sealed bulb, not the whole light, just like new truck and cars are.

    You should be able to swap out the lamps, the ballast can be hidden on the plow carraige under the cover. (about the size of a pck of cigarettes, one for each side)
