    I tried HID's in my truck and plow last year. I was having problems with them turning on and off constantly. This year I picked up a relay harness and signal canceller kit for my plow and now they're working fine. Just be aware that I When I tired a kit for my truck the 55 watt kit was way too bright. It was blinding everyone on the road.

    Put them in my 2003, and had problems... Had to end up hooking them up to the parking lights instead and have not had a problem..... Has something to do with the computer thinking the bulb is out...

    Ill have to dig the box up... I tried a few different brands and had the same results, the lights would work no longer than it took me to pull out of the garage... You can try wiring them into your plow harness as well..

    Ah, we have a winner. Where did you get the 55 watt kit, DaySpring? Sounds like a set up I could use.

    I got everything off ebay, the Hid's and relay harness came from hidxenonshop. The signal canceller came from hidxenonshop.
